That varies from person to person based in genetics.

Re: How much body fat?

well they say for abs you need about 10 % for males. Is this the same percentage for the chest and arms?

Re: How much body fat?

There is no set fat percentage to see muscle. Too many variables. 10% is quite lean and healthy - If you have decent lean mass you should see some decent definition at 10%. Bodybuilders shoot for sub 5% with 3% being very competitive. Keep in mind BF measurements all have a margin of error.
