I agree with Winterbike and RumbleRo. Especially if we can't see more than just the torso. He looks like he has less bodyfat because he is thin, but there is no appreciable muscle mass, so most of the mass is actually fat. Sorry to be blunt, but I have worked with bodybuilders for the last 12 years and usually the people that *think* they are at 5% are closer to 10%.
People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
I appreciate all of the frankness in the discussion. I'm a realist. Based on pinch tests and your estimations, I'd say I'm probably around 18-20%. I estimate that at my heaviest, I was around 30%
As for guessing body fat percentages, I'm not going to win any prizes any time soon. I appreciate the observations from the other guessers, especially Laconophile's intriguing link.
