Because it was aimed at the kids who want to stay lean all year round that I have to answer questions from on a daily basis, who think 15% bodyfat is fat, and that staying ripped year round is feasible. I thought perhaps you and other bodybuilders might chime in and guide then, providing some insight as to why 6-8% is not feasable.

If power lifters want to justify there body weight, I feel it should be in the powerlifting mini forum not the bodybuilding mini forum.
Not sure what you're talking about here, to be honest. No one's justifying anything. Please re-read the thread.

Each day I have to answer upwards of 75 questions from young lifters, and a good portion of them want to be ripped year round. This was directed to them, and has nothing to do with "justifying being fat". It's about the myriad of kids who think 6-8% year round is feasible.

These kids also consider Poundstone to be fat. This is a direct quote from another forum. They are believing in false standards, and promoting them.

This has nothing to do with powerlifting.

Poundstone was merely a physique example. In addition, he's not a powerlifter.

This is indeed a question that belongs in the bodybuilding forum since it is about physique shaping.
