Do you guys have a certain way to figure out at what weight people of different heights have a comparable physique?
A few calculations I tried out were, as examples, I compare Rich Froning (5’9, 200 lbs) to me (at 6’8) and name what weight I would have to have at the same bf% to give feel for the formulas:
standard BMI. At lower heights, you get relatively higher numbers, at higher heights, you will get relatively lower weights. This seems pretty backwards, since taller guys need way more mass to fill out their frames on average. If I wanted to be Froning-esque, I would have to weigh around 270 lbs.
New BMI (first hit on google). A fair bit more accurate. Don’t know how to feel about it right now. I think it might be a good calculation, but it might be on the heavy side. If I wanted to have a sweet bod like Rich, I would have to be just over 295 lbs.
A CT idea: add 5 lbs per inch someone is taller. This might be on the lowish side I feel. Especially when you are getting over 5 inch of difference. I would have to be 255 lbs to look at like the Fittest man on the planet.
