15% Body Fat: Get Your Body Fat Below 15%

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

Recent advice

“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.”

I agree with Chris, you need to have it measured professionally. Most fitness centers or rec centers on college campuses have someone who is trained to do it. Oftentimes, you have to pay for it, but it is realtively...

I'm afraid that the healthyform link will not do the job - At all. Taking waist measurement and measuring it againt weight and height and does not give you a bodyfat percentage. Secondly not all body types ev...

Sam S get your body fat below 15% Challenge

Sam S So currently I'm at 22%. My carb intake has been low for the past few months and I've been on a plateau for the past 3 weeks. Does anyone have any advice?

Male

I was at 24 percent for awhile. Your best option that worked well for me is HIIT (High Intesity Interval Training). Google it and find a program. The one i used was the 21 day bizzy diet. Good luck!! :)

A friend of mine got stuck on a fat % and she ended up doing 2 hours plus cardio a day to get it down. It was hard for her to get under a certain percent.

Contributorgold Jez B How do I know what my body fat % is?

You're welcome, and you're not that far! Well, the first obvious advise it too keep an eye on your carb intake and on your diet; I have no idea of how intense a squash game can be, but I'd add some HIIT sesh to your workouts if you're not doing them yet. To shred your abs the best is a little circuit ot 3-4 exercises, max reps each one and no rest, and a small rest between each round, about 30-45 seconds. Hope it can be helpful. Best wishes mate! :)

I've just retread you advice @matteor, having read it the first time and then promptly forgot all about it and this challenge. Think it would be good for me to aim to complete this challenge in the new year. I've never been happy with my how much fat I've been carrying. Will be quizzing you some more for sure, hope you're ready for lots of questions! :)
