what is hips pls help
The area around your hip bones.
It’s 23%…is this good ???
Nope! You need to get to 13 or so for good health and 7 or 8 for six pack abs ( If you are MALE )
uhmm…..i’m getting 0%….either i’m skinnier than i thought or there is something wrong with the calculator?
What did you add?
i got 27% but i have abs?
i need to do a lot of exercise to came in 8% 😉
mate I have 16%, and I plan to start from monday this workout(it looks very good).. I will do fist 7 day six pack.. I just have worry that you will send me workouts without give me time to do my 7 day’s six pack workout(dont do that, send me workouts after I do 7 day six pack).. I hope you understad me, becouse my english is not good:).. Best Regards !!
Nobody can tell you what your weight should be. Your bodyfat needs to be around 8 or 9 but make sure you also have enought muscle.
Oh my god, 31% i’m a fatass.
hey peter my body fat is 14% and i still have a small belly what should i do
I got 20% body fats, you think by following 7 days 6-packs abs plan that you gave, will I be able to cut it down to 8% in short time?
mine is 8% and i’m 13 years old, is that good? and what body fat percentage do i need to get six pack abs? by the way, i’m using the 6 week 6 pack challenge with no delays.
That is a good start but then you want to get onto the 6weeksixpack here: http://www.6weeksixpack.com
I signed up for 6week6pack on the 22nd april, im follow every workout you showed us, and its working.
And with my 8% body fat, what percent does my body fat need to be to get my ripped body and six pack abs? I really need to know this so can you please reply. Thanks mate
Normally around 6 to 8%. So if your body fat is that low and you still can’t see your abas, not even a 4 pack then you need to wokr on building your abs up a bit or you can just get even more ripped.
Ok, and do you know how long will it take before I achieve my ripped body and six pack abs? I really need to know this, my birthday is coming up and I want to be ready for summer, I’m 13 right now by the way and I will be 14 in 1 month.
Search the website, we have an article on that.
Ok, just did tha and it said I will have my ripped body, and six pack abs in 1-2 weeks, I hope it does
I got it to 7% now peter, i’m seeing a definiton of my abs! Any more tips for me besides the 6week6pack and nutrition?
Just keep going! Sounds like you doing perfect!
My body fat is 16%… is that good?
It is ok as far as being healthy ( 13 or 14 is even better ) but if you want 6 pack abs you need to bring it down to 7 or so.
hey peter, i’m a 12 your old girl almost 13.
I have been doing your exercise for only 2 days… – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE2tIaUyN5k
but i was just wondering should i do it every day for 3 times and add some other exercise in or is this just enough.. and i was also wondering, my bodyfat is 21%, what should i bring it down to ? 😀
At 12 you shoudl really just have FUN Do things you like doing and be active. Eat healthy and you will be ok. You can bring your body fat down to around 17 or so and you will be just fine. But don’t stress about things to much at your age, JUST BE ACTIVE!
My body fat is 3%. Was there something wrong with the calculator?
Nope, maybe you just added a wrong number?
my body fat is 13 percent and i can see only my top abs
i still have little fat around my chest what do u suggest i do with that
Just continue dropping your fat, eat right and doing the right exercises.
I have 17%, how do I drop that to 12% in 2 weeks without losing weight? I already do around 90 minutes of cardio per day plus 5 hours of workouts (1.5 of weights and 3.5 of abs) per week, I eat healthy and 1g of protein per lb of body weight. Plus, how do I know what % I am losing per week?
hmm. 10% body fat. i need to work out more.
Whoa mine is 6%! I just visited your website and I am interested in your program! Hope this works for me. I am skinny as they say and I wish to have abs.. I just gave birth 3 years ago. Skinny with that stomach bulging a bit. :/
Hey I got 7% bodyfat. I’m 5’10, 29 in the waist. I already have a six pack but they are kinda flat compared to other bodybuilders I’ve seen. I don’t do much cardio. Do I need to increase the amount of cardio I do each week? I’m not sure what to do. If anyone has any tips on getting bigger abs it would be very appreciated.
Focus on building your ab muscles so they POP more.
hey peter im 13% am i alright? im in the 2 week of your training it looks very good isnt it?
Sounds good to me!
mine is 5% is this good?
does this mean if i just workout and stick to my eating habits then i should get a six pack fast?
Peter I’m a woman and I am 16 years, my body fat is 16%, it’s that okay?
Yes that is good!
peter i am like 26% body fat . i am 6 feet . when i calculated it says it take 9 months 5 days to get me ripped !!!………. cant i get ripped much before ??/
Sure, I went from 32% to around 8% in 6 months. It all depends on how good your workout and diet is and how comitted you are.
when i put all of the numbers in it said.. NaN% … what does this mean?
No idea, I will check it out. Maybe you just entered a wrong number or something,
woops jus found out my problem never mind the other comment i jus posted
hello man.. ur program is just awesome.. i start it 2 months ago.. i was weighting 92 kg.. im 1.70m at the beggining i just got tired and tired.. whitout any result according to me.. 😀 bt on the 4th week.. i start to lose weight in the mirrow.. im now 17% of body fat (i was 29).. i just wanna say thanks.. u are really changing my life… Greetings from China..
Hey peter how is it that those wwe superstars have abs when they must have twice my hip and neck size?
Well done! Keep going!
What does size have to do with 6 pack abs? Bodybuilders are twice the size of WWE superstars and they have abs as well.
I got 12% wth? I coul swear its higher than that…. I feel fat
I got 10%. Is that ok ??
Very good yes!
I can see my abs faintly, but i still have some fat on my lower belly. I can see the top 4 really faintly (but more visible on a mirror). My body fat % on the calculator said 3%, so why can’t i have abs?
If you body fat % is 3 you will have abs. So it might be around 13 or so probably.
34%…. i need to get rid of 21% of fats just to get a healthy body and about 27% of fats to get six packs……. such a big number…
I was around 32% bodyfat when I started. Just take it a day at a time!
hey, i am 20 years old, have 83 kg, and 179cm… my body fat is 8%… I will start tomorow, i dont have any 6 pack, or 4 pack or anything, hope i will get it in a few weeks… Is it possible to get in till januar??
sry about my english…
i have 14% body fat(male)…i exercise daily,so…am i in a good way of getiing six pack abs?…..moreover,how can i mesure how much of my body fat is burnt at the end of the week?
with a second calculation(exact the same numbers),i have 13% body fat….anyway,is 13%-14% ok?
Yip it’s ok.
i have a little fat around my lower belly…if i exercise daily,will it get burnt soon enough?
I just found the answer to my previous question in an article written by you. So thanks.
24% Bodyfat o.o
hey peter!!!…my body fat is now 11% from 14% that it was in the past……thanks a lot for all your advice…
Hey peter! I have 15% fat, I have good upper body structure and muscle mass but have a small tummy. I do regular gym but ma fat percent never goes below 13%. I need a way out…help me bro!
Contact me via email if possible.
Sign up to the 6WeekSixPack Challenge!
Im 33% i know its realy bad I want to work on it which workout you prefer ? I was 2 years before 73 kilogram now im 97 kg . I want to go back to 80 kg . Which workout is good for me ?
Thx the answers !
Do you recommend weighted ab exercises to help create more visable abs (assuming body fat is low enough) over non weighted exercises ie to help them ‘pop’ out more??
Also do you recommend hitting lower abs one day / upper abs next / obliques another day etc or train the entire core in the same session??
To help build your abs weighted exercses are best. As far as doing one area per day or all togther, it does not really matter. Sometimes I split it up and sometimes I don’t.
I’m 18 % and I can see my abs, and then got pro tested at 9%
Im 19%. Thank you so much Peter this is very helpful.
Hi peter, I’m at 11%, am on a good diet and do cardio and abs every other day. Is this good?
Wow, 44%. I knew I was to huge… But this is gonna take a long time to make it work :).. But thanx Peter, now at least I know where I stand.
Maybe I’m gonna try this, I’m working out now (and lost some cm’s around mij hips – imagine what it was before), but I do believe in the principles your telling… Gotta think about it
Yip it is ok.
Hi Peter, I got 11%, but i have a really good six pack. Do you think i might have calculated it wrong?
I got 17%, but I cant see my abs, peter help me
I am 12% is this good , I really wish to be 7%
peter is this accurate?
because it says im 10% body fat but i thought id be 15% or 16% body fat lol
12 is good and healthy but if you want to get 6 pack abs you want to get down to 6 or 7%
Well you want to get down to 7& or so before you will see your abs.
IF you have a 6 pack why does it matter? This is just an estimate anyway, if you want to get an accurate reading go to a pro and get a bodt fat test done.
When I had more fat on me I had 16% now I am more ripped and I have 22%?
It seems it’s a bit broken
I know for a fact that my body fat is 7.8 % now. I’m just gonna use this to see if this is accurate
But as for my abs,i just started seeing outlines. However faint, i am taking my diet and my workout seriously, 3 days a week abs, 2 days something else. So 5 days of workout, 2 days rest and mixing it up so that my muscles don’t adjust to my schedule.
And thanks to you Peter, i discovered a great cardio exercise i can do at home
Looking forward to my 6 weeks of pain and gain 😀
hi peter, im gettin 8% but i cant see my abs in fact i still have a little bit of fat
and i call myself an engineer…. no it was 35… damn measuring skillls
I am 14 years old , and i got 11% is that good ???
I got a lot of work to do I knew I had a high body fat% but i didn’t think I was at 41%.
Yes that is ok!
I’m 18% and I’m Female, thats terrible!! What do I need to be??
It is not that TERRIBLE, but you want to bring it down to around 15.
Hey Peter. I’ve entered the 6 pack challenge a few times just on my own non-commercial. Right now I’m in between 12-16 % body fat from approximate measurements. I feel great, thank you for the workouts.
I was wondering if there was a way I could get some muscle building forearm exercizes. I was thinking Dumbell jacks / Hammer curls. Because even though my shoulders and biceps look nice. I want to improve on my forearms too!
I also merged a few of the 6 Pack Extreme challenges’ Exercises with the Cover model Challenge. Weight training from the 6 pack Extreme Challenge, Matched with the Cardio + ab exercises Has made me very exhausted. I have a cheat meal once a week. Sometimes twice if I slip up :P. But I’m sticking to my diet best I can. More vegetables than breads. And more Potatoes and lean proteins.
Voting for you!!
We already have a few forearm workouts, just search the site or our youtube channel.
Hey Peter I’m 17 yrs old male and it says I got a fat percentage of 15% is this good?
Really want to see abs , what do I to get body fat down and gain muscle ?
Oh my god I’m fat.
Hello Peter, not sure if this is the right place but just wanted to tell you how great your site is. I just did my first full day (started on Sunday with the diet, and monday with the workouts of week one. It is totally right on. You are a really big motivator for me. I really think I can succeed at my seemingly impossible long held dream to get a 6pack. Thanks! Want to join the 6pack challenge too. But I started not wanting to wait for the next one. I am taking daily photos, four poses per day, flexed and relaxed, and front and side. After 6 weeks if all goes well I will send you the first and last days photos. Robert (English teacher in South Korea)
Thanks Robert and good luck!!!
It is not bad, but you want to try and get it down to 7 or so if you want to see your abs.
my body fat % is 8%. so for me how long wil it take to get six pack abs?
I have fat around my waist. I have tried so many exercises but didn’t work. Please suggest me most effective exercise for waist fat reduction.
I’m 14&1/2, and I am rather chubby – I’m male too.
I have started the 6w6pcw, and it is great.
When I do the ah exercises, my abs hurt (a lot) after 5 seconds, but after 1-2 seconds rest, they’re fine.
Is there anything wrong, and what do you suggest I do?
You’ve been a great help to me.
Just rest and go again.
2 to 3 weeks MAX!
Hi peter….are you trained by Vince? By any chance? I was just googling around the internet, you know, searching some new ways for getting (easy) six pack abs, and stuff, before I came across Vince’s page… I read his article, and I was surprised, that he trained you!! I didnt know you were trained by someone..?? I thought you got your six pack abs by yourself…..
Nope I was NOT. His is currently being SUED by us for using my images! I never used any of his CRAP!
I got 95 >.<
WTH!! men I am getting 20%!! I got 10% 3 weeks ago!! How is that even possible?? I can see a very blurry 3 abs and a bit clearer when I hold my breath! I checked everywhere and I’m still getting 20%! W…W..W..Whats happening? Did I really added over 5% over 3 weeks!
10% hope to start seeing my abs soon
I got 23%…. but I know that a woman’s body percentage is supposed to be larger than a male’s. about what should mine be with six pack abs (for a 5’5 female)?
Female will normally start seeing thier abs at around 12% BF or so.
I hav completd 6 week 6 pack challenge..Now I am in Cover model chlnge….In cycle 6…my body fat percentage is 20%..what should I do?
Hello Peter ! I’m a woman and it says %40 What does that mean ? I’m 27 years old what is the healthy percentage for me ?
Around 15 to 18 is healthy.
im fourteen years old, male, about 6 foot tall and i weigh about ten stone. according to the calculator i am about 6-7% body fat and you can just start to see my top abs. i am very active and i really enjoy your workouts. do i just keep working and will i get a full six pack? any tips to get there faster?
@ Jack – keep up the good work, don’t eat junk food.
I’m a teen and i got 0% …..but i can’t really see my abs…..think gotta do more abdominal workouts
13% and its estimated that it will take me 10 weeks to have 6 pack abs. Afterwards I would like to gain muscle mass so how should i go bout that?
@ isaiah – once your ready to build muscle look at Justin’s articles on our site!
How do I find out my body fat % without a doctors help?
@ michael – fitness professional at local gym
@ Troy – build up your abs and lose body fat and you will see them
hi peter i am 13 years old ,what my fat should be in your opinion
in fact i am about to be 14 pls reply
i have 10% body fat and my abs only show after im done working out..i need to get other workouts for my abs
I had a nice stomach about eight months ago. Then I stopped working out and now my abs are gone. At that time I was 13% and this calculator quoted me at 12%. I might have measured incorrectly so I added 2 to my measurements and the calculator changed to 14%. I recomend a double check or have a pro do it in order to find exact percentage. For, I find this calculator to be (in combination with user error) off by any where from 2 – 4 %.
@ Joel – many workouts on the site and our youtube channel
@ Corri – this is for people who can’t get to a professional – its just an estimate
Peter, could you please calculate it for me cause i cant understand it! .. body weight 72 Kg .. high 174.5 Cm.
12% (im on week 3 of the 6week6pack challenge) any hope for me? :p
Fill in your circumference measurements above and calculate your body fat. Remember this is only an estimate and is best used to show continual progress.
I have 12% bodyfat (came from 15%)
I can see my upper abs but not my lower abs
recently i lost like 6kg (from 78 to 71.5, i am 188 cm).
Now my question:
– If i try to watch what i eat and use whey protein 100% in the morning, before workout and after workout (been doing this for weeks), will i be able to define my lower abs and that v-cut (obliques?) more?
– How important is the intake of protein in developing my muscles?
Hey Peter, I’m at 26% body fat my goal is to get it to 12% or less.
Can’t wait to get started.
hi peter im 33% body fat so im going to have my work cut out but im prepared and willing
i need help with my food im trying to eat white meat with steamed veg but i am finding this very dry
is there a healthy option sauce i can put over to make it less bland thankyou
looking forward to tommorows email
Try a home-made tomato sauce or lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil
I am at 19%. So looking forward to begin
i got 19% is that good?
well anyways i just got started with your workout and i am currently on my 7th day of my prep day and its my cheat day for preparation for my workout with tom.
i feel so strong right now hope to get stronger.. and i will be stronger! 😀
I have been following your workouts for some time now and am really happy with how things are going. So thanks!!
I have 8% body fat but I want to build muscle now without gaining body fat. I was wondering if this is possible as I know when trying to build muscle you have to eat more?
I’m at 10% but still can’t see my abs. What do I do!!??
Use heavy weights and start to build your abs!
huh okay, so I am 13% right now. Guess I need to just start working hard.
everyone should looks at this as a way to see progress over time, it does’nt show actual bodyfat %. you can use it to see if you go up or down, but it’s not very precise. it says I’ve got 6% body fat and im alot more than that, but it’s gone down since the last time I’ve used it, so I can see it going the right way, nothing more
You can find it at : http://op.6weeksixpack.com/
hie Peter im getting -1% wats happening ma
The calculator does not seem to be using Hip value.
Irrespective of what is entered under hips, calculation is based on Waist,neck and height
