I’ve been reading stickies and they all state that one should lose fat to help keep up T levels. However, my trainer (one of the really good ones who is a T-Nation regular author) stated that my low (< 6%) BF levels were doing exactly the opposite, so I bulked up to a whopping 10%.
So… here are my questions:
- Is there such a thing as too low BF? What is it?
- Is there a upper limit for BF I should not exceed?
I do strength training but was a long distance runner for years, so still have that lean look, though I’ve gotten muscles. Runners often have really low T. Is this partly because of low bodyfat? It seems to me that the statements about losing fat to up T need a qualification that obese (whatever that means) people should do this. This site generally has a lot of leaner athletic guys, so it is not clear to me how this advice applies.
Just curious. Thanks!
