Here’s an ideal height/weight scale I made up myself. nothing scientific here… tell me what ya think?
I think you all need to stop pulling numbers out of your asses and realize none of that means much. While some basic info can be gathered by someone’s weight compared to height (such as a 6’2" person being really damned skinny under 190lbs), the rest is variable based on muscle shape or genetic bone structure.
Why would someone set a limit before they ever reach it? Unless you are already at a certain weight and are wondering how you look NOW, wasting all of the time setting up some limit you may never even reach is pretty stupid.
Lift weights and build muscle. Should the day come (which is pretty damn doubtful if you are the type who sets limits like this before you work hard to reach it) that you actually become “too big” for your height, then you can start cutting back on the weight lifted.
These charts you all are making mean shit.[/quote]
I don’t get it either Prof X. I said in a previous post that when it comes to muscle building… any chart can just be thrown out the window. I think you could probably make a bunch of differnt charts and base if off of that… but you would need so many charts. a specific one for your body type, bone structure, muscle mass… etc etc.
I think the OP is trying to get an average.
I don’t know. The health charts have me as obese for my height/weight. you’re probably morbidly obese X. lol
I wish there was a bodybuilders chart.
I do lnow that Arnold was Arond 6’2" 240 lbs ripped… and Serge Nubret 6’ 200lbs ripped… you can possibly base it on guys who are known for having very proportionate and symmrtrical muscular bodies.
I really don’t see the point either. I could make up 50 charts… the best one would be to just look in the mirror, thats what I do.
