One of the best threads and legit threads I read, good work OP.

Gymcelling and lean bulking for 6 months / 1 year will always mog. Look at the guy in my pfp, he's not a gymcel ogre, but lean and muscular which is ideal and easily achievable
after 1 year if you do roid, natty after 1 year look shit irl

Other photo arrays were designed to see whether women preferred men with abs. They didn’t:
View attachment 1603533

Here, 63% of women found a body-fat percentage of around 13% the most attractive, preferring it it to the physiques of guys with more chiseled abs.

"whether women preferred men with abs. They didn’t:"

What a cope comment.

Abs matter. imo.

those studies are suspect and look like dogshit tbh, but i’m just going off your description of them.

The truth is, 10% is the ideal body fat range for men. This is where your face reaches its peak, or at least close to it.

Realistically, however, you want to be between 10-13%. 12% is the sweet spot. All the PSL Gods and PSL 7s are at this bodyfat

yes but face is much much much much more important than abs

abs on an ugly face = not attractive
abs on a beautiful face = attractive

no abs on an ugly face = not attractive
no abs on a beautiful face = attractive

but you are right.. all 4 pics have abs
btw; i didnt write that sentence.. its just copy from the study

These studies never consider the intersection of facial aesthetics and bodyfat percentage. The reality is a very large percentage of men will not be at their facial aesthetic peak at 15-16%. The peak for facial aesthetics is closer to 10%.

A good way to see this is to go search for YouTube videos where people post videos of themselves at different body fat percentages and compare their face when they are around 15% and again when they get closer to 10%.

For example in the video below, compare the guy at 2:58 - 3:39 and 3:45 - 4:15



Or this guy at 0:20 and at 0:26

I think so too. If you google ideal bf% normie articles will say around 15% but without excellent forward growth / massive jaw bones, most people won't have chiselled lower third until they are close to single digit bf.

being as lean as possible is ideal when you are above 20 ffmi. It is virtually impossible to be too lean or too muscular naturally jfl. Just lean bulk and be patient. Body is only one part of the puzzle.

Every percent at that bf makes a big difference on face actually

Yeah

When going from something like 25-20%, chances are your face will look basically the same, but smaller since there is usually a bunch of fat covering the bone at both percentages.

When you get around sub 15% (with some genetic variation between people obviously) you have mostly shed the excess fat and now your bone structure begins to show more and more with each pound lost.
