    This challenge is to cut fat and obtain visible abs. Anyone who is currently 20% BF or higher is encouraged to join me in this challenge. (I'm not too fixed on that 20% number, just wanting to encourage people striving for significant body transformation to join).

    Posting progress pics and/or stats is highly encouraged.

    I'll get my starting stats posted soon... I'm currently around 26%, so those of you closer to 20% will have a head start :tu:

    Post if you're up for the challenge :D

    This sounds okay to me.

    If it's okay I won't post bf% as I don't know what I am. Instead I will upload progressive photos of my mid-section.

    Starting photo will be posted over the weekend.

    I'm hoping to have visible abs by just after mid year.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    It starts right now and finishes when you can see your abs.

    I think 17% still might be too high for visible abs, usually sub-10% is needed.

    Hope everyone sticks around to see this out...

    Cheers,
    Mike
