Default Body fat % to stay warm?

Do you guys keep track of body fat? I'm currently in a cutting stage so I'm trying to get my bodyfat low. Since I'm going to be out in the cold a lot, should I forget cutting till the Spring? Rather than doing cardio to lose weight, I guess the goal is to do cardio to get stamina then?

nah, why lose the progress you have made thus far when you could just bundle up?

the right clothes in layers > body fat. I would put endurance & strength training, good diet, and dressing in layers above body fat considerations. A few % points in body fat will make less of a difference than what you put over your fat.

If you're a under 30 male, <10% is considered ideal.

I prefer to be under 10% because the ladies love it. But it is hard so good luck.

Don't worry -- some ladies like a strong guy who fills out his clothes. Body-fat considerations aside, if you look good in jeans... yow!
