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.”

Justin M I have done 2 tests for body fat % today. One reading 15.4% and the other 9.4%. I need to confirm what it really is and then hopefully cross this one off. Wouldn't be worth assuming now

Lisa Anne G According to the results from a link on TS, I am around 25%, which is around where I was thinking. I am going to ask at the Y next time I go to see if they offer more accurate measurements.

Darlene M I am currently at 22% BF but my trainer says due to me being so small that she wants me to stay around 18% she says I will look way to lean if I go any lower and I have to show some decent muscle on stage so this is my goal 18% not 15 but most woman should stay around this range is they want to look healthy and toned
