Honestly, (yes this is really splitting hairs) I'd go with around 15%. Definite abdominal outline. Especially if this is unflexed. I think the lower LBM is the reason it's not lower %. I think he'd be good to go with a moderate deficit and lift heavy with emphasis on progressive overload. Definitely some potential with this method.

Appreciate the feedback. Iíve been doing the RFL for a few weeks now and my lift numbers have just now started to drop a little. Iím assuming this means my deficit is a bit too large

It means you're losing body weight, muscle glycogen and have low blood sugar. It's completely normal.

Sure, share it with us. There is a "thing" that DEXA is not as accurate as some believe. Having a visual alongside the numbers may make us more conscious about that. Please note that this does not mean the DEXA is wrong by default. Yours may be very accurate.

Youíre probably right on Dexa not being as precise as everyone says. Have you ever had one?

My initial Dexa in November said 8.2% (would have guessed I was closer to 11%) a follow up in December was 8.9% and I was leaner in December. Go figure. Tester was adamant the numbers were 100% correct both times.

The mirror and consistent use of calipers would probably work almost as well. It all comes down to how comfy each of us is with their look, something a number canít always provide.
