I'm interested in the motivations of those of you with goals to be be in the mid single digits (say 5-6%) in the long-term and continuously . What are your reasons? Why do you prefer this as opposed to 10-11%? Or thereabouts. What sacrifices are you prepared to make? What about giving up certain things or a particular rigid discipline is more satisfying than a little more moderation? And, as this what are your plans to get there? Short-term and long-term plans. Nutrtion and training.
(Not sure what would correspond bodyfat-wise for women. But feel free to answer if your goal is to have a tight, lithe, hard, body. Not competition-lean but close and leaner than is necessary to still have a damn good body [in my view])
