As many of us I’m on the ongoing pursuite to a faster cyclist. I do some strength work 2-3 times a week for the whole body. Currently my Tanita says im at 19.5% body fat. Its not geat but I got under the 20% mark. From what I read I think I should aim for under 15% (10% would be the optimum). My primary goal is to get a flat stomach. I was always overweight. Every pound I drop now leads to a knew weight I just had once in my lifetime. When I grew up and got still heavier. I’m pretty happy with my cycling performance and feel great. To tuck my shirt in my pants without an bump from my belly is the ultimate goal.
But if you take a look at pictures of people of different bf% you can see very different body composionts. Yes. I know all the things about differten measuring methods and all these urban myths. But You can see really fit people with very different %.
I don’t really know what I’m aiming for in this top. Maybe some of you could share their experiences. Do you know your bf%? Does it correspondent with your picture of your own? Do you have a higher % but are very happy and fit and fast? Do you have a flat stomach but a high bf%?
Whats your relationship with your bf%?
Thanks for sharing!
