      I love it how people think 12% is some magical unobtainable bodyfat% and
      that staying in that range is so dangerous and destroying your health and hormones lol.

      once you dip below 15% muscle and strength loss becomes noticeable.
      How much noticeable depends on several factors, but you will notice it.

      What a load of fucking horseshit. There's absolutely nothing that happens when you "dip below 15%". The only arguement there is that once you hit 15% and you have started from ~20-25% you have already been cutting for months, even up to a half a year. So when your body has been in a caloric deficit for half a year and you are still continueing and trying to lose last percentages (and just mathematically speaking it get's harder to lose those percentages) your overall energy levels are just very low so your strength is down too. This is however something that picks up REALLY quick when you switch to maintenance/bulk. It's like week or two at most and you are back at your peak.

      The muscle loss is close to a zero. Your body will not just start eating through your muscles lmao. And even if it does it would be like 100g at most. Like think about it, it takes a year to gain 1kg of lean muscle mass, you think your body will just rid of that when you drop from let's say 85kg to 80kg? None of that will be muscle. You just didn't have that much muscle mass to begin with and you lost size because of fat and water weight. You look leaner and smaller but the same muscle tissue is still there.

      When you are getting stupid ripped as natty, talkinbg 4-6% bodyfat THAT'S when it starts becoming a reality but not in the 10-15% range.

        there's plenty of skellies they could use instead.
        Showing all these different people with wildly different muscle mass doesnt really show the difference when a person goes from 20 down to 15.

    At what point will fat loss start to severely affect maintaining muscle while cutting? Is it highly dependant on genetic predispositions?

    Currently 16~18% aiming for 10~12%.

    So far lifting in a caloric deficit worked just fine going from 20~22 down to 16~18, no muscles lost (but I had to reduce lifting to 3 times a week from 6 times a week because it takes me more time to recover while cutting)

    As a natty I feel like 15% is the ideal target, balancing between size and leanness. Though I'm currently leaning down to 10% and less to see what my face will look like.

    why do you retards repost this dumb image? this is not a bodyfat % comparison. these people don't have the same muscle composition. anorexic people are also low bf% yet they don't look like bodybuilders. not one person in this pic has the same amount of muscle as the first guy. this is so retarded

    I'm somewhere between the 6-7% pic and the 10-12% pic, but only when I'm FLEXING. When I'm relaxed, I look more between 10-12% and 15%. Where does that put me? Are all of those guys flexing in the pictures?

    Bullshit chart really.
    >Be 200lb
    >15% bf is 30lbs of fat, volume equals 4 gallons or 15 liters.
    >10% bf is 20lbs of fat, volume equals 2.6 gallons or 10 liters.
    >5% bf is 10lbs of fat, volume equals 1.3 gallons or 5 liters.

    Pour out each of those volumes and imagine them layered over your body.
