    Ditto the above accolades Doc. You're #1 when it comes to finding gems like this.

    Looking closely at the photo his body fat can't be more than 2-3% I would think. That cat is solid. Suite 'im up!

    Dudes pretty big. I hope he can last more than two years here, and get a working relationship with our players more than the revolving door approach we've had with our Strength coachs



    Just yanking your chain and being smarmy, but 2-3% bf would fall into the 'sliced' category of broscience bodybuilding..

    Sliced = Muscles and tendons begin to appear in the face when chewing, striations appear everywhere and vascularity appears everywhere. Body fat levels are close to 3% and subcutaneous water levels are near 0. Condition can only be held for a few hours at a time. Not a healthy condition to stay in due to lower water level.

    Here's an example of someone in the Sliced state: CAUTION:GROSS:CLOSE YOUR EYES AND SCROLL DOWN IF YOU JUST ATE/Don't want nightmares.

    An extreme level of conditioning is needed for bodybuilding purposes, while a smaller reduction is often all it takes to produce a "beach body." A certain amount of body fat is needed for survival purposes alone - around 3-4 percent for males and slightly higher for females - with higher percentages (around 10 percent for males and 15 percent for females) deemed within the healthy, acceptable range.

    This is what happens when you reach 2-3 percent body fat.

    Goes to show how much I know about bodybuilding and body fat %'s and how they relate to appearance. Perhaps I should have said something like "that cat's solid muscle". Would have been more accurate and not exposed my ignorance so much :tinfoil:

    Not like that hasn't happened before or will again :rake:

    I wouldn't get too upset. Most people have no idea how to relate body appearance to actual body fat.

    Rough guideline if anyone is curious, depending on genetics.. (Not directed at the Doc)

    12-15% - Upper ab definition
    10-12% - Upper abs clearly stick out
    8-10% - Lower abs, this is where your 6 pack comes out - This is about how low you can go for that 'beach body look' and be able to maintain it
    7-8% - Eight pack, super nice look. can maintain for a 3 month beach period, but after that your going to get tired of it - Lots of restricted food intake.

    Anything 3-6% is usually reserved for starving or bodybuilding competition, rarely sustainable, and typically, is not healthy.

    Never was a 6pk kinda guy. I'm guessing by these %s, I'm more like a *suitecase* kinda guy :lol:

    Before I started separating my shoulder all over the place, I was down to the 7-8 range I guess. Now, maybe 10-12.

    Anyway, this coach is yoked. And he seems like a pretty cool guy, I hope he stays for a while.
