Moobs are sagging more. That one is pretty subjective, though I agree if I had to choose, I'd rather look like the 35%. Might be his chest-beard making him look less like a girly-boy.

My Training Log

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs

Can't be. I'm 205, so 35% fat means I only have 135 lbs of lean body? What, I'm supposed to be skeletor? Maybe I was a Twilight actor in another life.

I use calipers for tracking and to give me a ball park. If you are going to use it, most recommend the 7 point pinches. Since I am just tracking, I do three, chest, stomach/ab and thigh.
