Can anyone guesstimate my bf %?

Been training hard since March and want to get to a decent low bf before I start my first bulk.

    Been training 6 months and lost 23lb. Looking to get to a good weight to start my first bulk. Am I nearly there or should I keep cutting for a while? Tia

    You look fantastic. Maybe 12%-15%?

    You could bulk now. I'd wait til the end of summer, personally. Bulking is mentally easier through the holidays, when there are treats everywhere anyway.

    Thanks, trying to get to single figures but coz I've got no hardly any muscle really I think it looks like I've got more fat,

    There's very little fat that I see and you look "toned," if not muscle-y. If you want more muscle then find a weight training program and follow it.

    I agree with quicksilver's estimate.

    I've got a little bit left on my stomach and a fairly large pinch on my sides, I just read somewhere to ideally get to 9% then bulk but I'm not sure as I've never done one. I can see a four pack and feel my other two abs under neath the last bit just can't quite see them

    I would of yesterday.

    I wouldn't put too much into the thought of dropping 5lb more. It's simply isn't that important from what I can see for long term. You have many bulk cycles in your lifetime.

    A lot of men seem to think that you have to get to 10% or less to bulk but I'm not sure who came up w/that idea.

    Anyway, FWIW, all of the muscle mass that I have now came from lifting heavy while UNINTENTIONALLY "bulking" from 160 to 200. When I "cut" back to 160, I had all of these muscles I had never seen b4 and I certainly wasn't at 10% BF either when I started or ended.

    So, if you want to bulk up, just do it. Only make sure you're not just sitting on your behind watching TV and eating bon-bons while you do. Lift whatever is heavy for you and keep pushing the wt up progressively until you're ready to cut.

    I think you'll be surprised w/what you see after that.

    Good advice. Just what i needed to read right now. As for thread starter. Great progress! Id bulk if i was in your position. You have made great gainnnnzzzz
