    body fat will cover up your muscles anyway, so why not be much leaner so you can enjoy what you see in the mirror

    if you just want to be one of those perma bulkers you see in the gym who just lift heavy and eat a lot then that is your business. it just isn't something that looks good

    i need to be able to see abs.

    if you are bulking i would be closer to 12-13%... you act like 5% is some small number.. thats a big deal and a huge discrepancy... there are a lot more risk using steroids at a higher body fat... its not smart whatsoever... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iy1v6GrmIoY

    This is something that I think is individual to some degree. What I mean is that different individuals carry the same amount of bf differently if you guys no where I'm getting at.

    That's not to say as long as you good outside it doesn't matter what your bf % is. So to give you some ballpark figures I'd say anywhere up to 15% is acceptable.

    The lower the better - it's bad if it's higher cos there's a far greater chance of problems with estrogen

    I think it's best to get your body fat down to 12% before starting a steroid cycle.

    The higher your body fat, the more testosterone will aromatize into estrogen

    This is the truth. You get more put of your cycle and better gains the leaner you are. Not to mention the reduction of stress on your health, etc

    Re: Ideal BF% for AAS?

    The thing is it's all too easy to 'just take a pill'. When, in fact, you are far better being properly prepared. So don't be that guy that walks to a gym and asks for a steroid to help me do 'X, Y or Z' and not to have got lean, trained, learnt about nutrition/steroids/training.

    It's easy to see why being fat or covered in fat doesn't help when on cycle. Check out the so-called 'man boobs' on many a fat guy. Now imagine a fat guy takes a cycle. His test-estrogen ratio before won't have been as it ought to have been and now he's added to that mix.

    Hence get lean or reduce the fat level and THEN cycle.
