What's a Good Bodyweight for Me?

I’m about 5’6" (off by about half an inch). What would be an ideal bodyweight (bodybuilding wise) for this height?

Whatever weight fits your particular build best. Experiment.
If you want to be big, get bigger, stop when your at your ideal size.
If you want to be smaller, get smaller, stop when your at your ideal size.

bodybuilding wise… the weight where you reach your genetic potential limit of building muscle and having around 3-5% body fat

OVER 9000!!!

Really depends on if your sport. In alot of cases strength is gonna matter more than weight, unless you need to be able to cut to a certain weight class of course.

Perhaps look for some bodybuilders that fit your current height. What do they weigh? I’m thinking at 5’6", 180-200 lbs will look pretty big. 1morerep is about your size. Do you want to look like him?
