Currently I'm between 12-14%BF which puts me around 20-25lbs of fat on my body, I'm pretty well going to experiment with some different diets just to try and get down around 8-10% and then stay there until I decide to either plan some shows or bulk back to 220+
Much the same here. Just measured today. In a month I have added almost a pound of muscle, less than a % pt of fat and weight has stayed pretty close. (hard to tell with wieght, because I do not have a digital scale or the cool Dr. scale). Pants are a bit tighter around the thigh, but then that measurement has gone up about 3/4 of an inch. I will be cutting down my total cals by about 200 and see what happens, but I am in this for the long haul.
