Jarod C Went and got my body fat % checked...13.3% Gained about 1.5lbs lean muscle since last month. Lost 2.1% since my last visit during the first week of April. Getting to my optimal race weight!
Get that body fat % down and get lean. Lean is quick!
Getting your body fat percentage below 15% is a good step in the direction of being really lean. Through whichever means you choose, aim to reduce your fat to a point where only 15 per cent of your body is comprised of fat. Once you do that you are only 5% away from a fully enveiled six pack.
Note: this is not recommended for women who need at least 15% bodyfat

“I persevered and finally made it! I have been exercising 2 hours per week but I would say that achieving this goal was 90% diet. I try to eat as little processed foods as possible and I know that helps. Excited to finally reach 14.8% body fat and planning to keep working toward my goal of eventually gaining that elusive 6-pack.”
