    Everytime I get it at the gym they fuck it up somehow, once they said I was 23% just today they said I was 18%, but they suck so I don't really believe them. What do you guys think. I'm currently cutting and don't really want to hear all the :mb::mb: about not being big enough, if you guys want to throw it what I should work more on it would be cool though...I'd really appreciate it if you guys could help me out:) Oh and my posing is horrible, I know, never really done it before :mamoru:

    are they measuring with calipers or electronic omtron thing....

    If it is electronic, it can vary with water weight, and if you are sitting or not...

    So a bulk is in order? The about that is I feel like I have too much fat. The plan was to cut, get my BF lower than 10%, then go for like a 6 month clean bulk

    I'd say 18% is about right.

    You can tell you work out, so don't worry to much! But as the others have said, you don't have a huge amount of muscle mass either.

    If I were you, I would probably cut and then clean bulk back up to the same weight at a lower body fat. I'm 5ft7, 180 at around 11% and I'm fairly happy. I'm going to post pics soon so that should give you some idea.

    I'd also say your lats are a weak point, so make sure you pay them enough attention!
