As you can see I'm making progress when flexing. My problem is "skinny fat". My BMI is 19, close to being under weight. I'm not seeing any definition or cut when I'm not flexing (ok very little). By my work hand held digital body fat scales my BF is 22%. If I lose more weight I will be under weight and not look healthy. Any suggestions? I just want to look muscular without having to flex. Should I cut? Top pic is one month post bottom.

I commented in slightly more detail on your other thread... I'd try hitting the weights hard as you can first. I'm in basically the same boat and that's been helping me without truly cutting.

I definitely think you should bulk first, especially since you seem concerned about being too skinny. Bulk, then cut.

Judging from your pics, you don't look too skinny.

I wouldnt worry about your BMI as such. Its just weight to hight, for instance a really heavy muscly person that isnt very tall, could be called over weight. Pay attention more to body fat percentages and if you feel that your happy with what your arm muscles are at, cut? Or if not build more then cut.

Thanks Greg. Right now my arms are the biggest biggest thing on my body. I'm 5'8.5/ 127. Which is a struggle. Usually around 122. So I am "thin". Ugh... It's a catch 22!
