This thread has made me realize I must be doing a good job training my son, he is a junior in High School: 5’7" 165lbs
We train for football and track mostly, I’ve planted the thought of entering some powelifting meets in his head, but he wants to train for athletic performance mainly.
Here is an odd question for you: He weighs 165 lbs right now, he is always trying to gain lean weight, but most people think we are lying about his weight, he looks like he must weigh over 200 lbs. The question is why is he so light, he really does look bigger, he’s very lean and muscular, I don’t get it, I weighed about 190 at his age, and he is way bigger than I was and twice as strong, I was about 1 1/2" taller but otherwise he has me beat everywhere else.
During the summer before football last year he got up to his max weight at about 173, if he told people he weighed 215 they would easily beleive it. What’s the deal? Do other people lie about their weight? or is he just odd? What does it mean that he is so light? Any thoughts?[/quote]
He is 5’7 if you are lean and strong at 5’7 170lbs you will look around the same as someone who is 6’ 200lbs just well shorter…
