    Weighing more than you look

    I'm 18 and have been lifting on and off for years. I recently started lifting for real and have seen some big gains. Right now I'm 5'10" 175 lbs at like 13% bf. The thing is that I don't look like 175. Im not fat and I'm not very muscular either. People usually think I'm like 130-140. I think I could get up to 200 and still not be very big looking. I don't have a problem with it, but I was wondering whats the deal. Are some people just denser than others? Is that a good thing?

    today i was at the nurse and they were weighing me and she put it at like 130 to start then realized it was 162 lol...muscle is 4 times denser than fat so someone who weighs 200 pounds and is like 35 percent body fat is obv gonna look like they weigh more than someone whos 6 percent body fat at 200 pounds

    I gained 25lbs and I don't really look much different with a shirt on. It's a good and a bad thing.

    Yeah I get that when people ask me "what you weight like 245lbs?" I just laugh and say I wish I'm like 280lbs.

    Most people think i weigh more than i do, probably because im on the taller end and im above average on the muscular side

    I dont know bro, my bf% last time i check was around 12...
    @ 5'10 175 you should be a little stocky.. If you took 2 people, same height, same weight, same age.. one all muscle, the other mostly fat.. the person with the muscle would most likely look heavier in my opinion

    Well when i was 5'10" 150 i would have thought that if i got up to 175 i would have looked like a fatass but i started lifting and got up to what I am now and honestly don't look a whole lot different. Im a little more solid but i think more people would describe me as thin than stocky.

    people usually guess around 180 for me which is really only 10 pounds off. however, i dont understand how myself at 190 pounds would look smaller next to some people on this site who weigh 160 pounds at the same height.

    does anyone else not notice that they're actually getting bigger?

    Yeah, eyeing someone's weight is very tricky. I'm 15 and about 6``1 feet tall, and i weigh in at 185. people think i weigh around 150 even less. I don't think its a good or bad thing really.

    i weight 187, but ppl think i weight a lot more than that because 187 is a pretty average weight in the population and these ppl that weight that are usually not very muscular

    That's because short people like us look bigger then someone that's taller but at the same weight.Which is really an advantage imo

    you could even just have thick bones. I dunno. Probably if you've been working out for over a year or so I'd say you could have more muscle weight than people expect you to.
