    ^^Weird, I always thought it was 200?

    Does it get harder to get to 180 as you progress, as long as you eat enough?

    I'm skinny fat right now and was hoping to reach 180 by the end of this year.. obviously I'd still have fat, so I'd probably cut down to 170. But still..

    I think 185 sounds about right as long as the bf is low like 10 - 12 %

    I am 5' 8 and am around 215 coming off a bulk. I was 190 when I started it. My goal is about 185 at about 10% bf.

    Does it get harder to add mass though, once you get close to 180? If you eat enough to get maximum results, how can it possibly take several years, like the guys on this board claim?


    Isn't it easier for manlets to get buff (like me), instead of tall guys?

    170 is a little small for 5'8"... I'd say 180-185 lean.

    No way... I was 180 bulked (about 15% bf) at 5'8" back in high school and that was nothing.

    165 lean is nothing.

    Not for nothin', but the only thing that I can compare a 5'8" guy to are some of the guys taht fight in the UFC. Normally guys at that height fight at a weight of, at most, 170. These guys are in pretty decent shape most of the time, and don't look "small".

    Unless you're juicing, I think it's reasonable to say that you can look pretty damned good anywhere between 165-185 depending on your frame, bone structure, genetics, etc. A 5'8" frame just wasn't meant to carry loads of natural muscle, unfortunately.

    I've got pretty wide shoulders, a fairly big bone structure, and nice size and I'm never more than 180lbs.

    Granted, my legs could use some more size but at the same time my upper body is definitely larger than 98% of the guys my height. Usually, I'm between 172lbs and 176lbs.

    If my legs were more proportionate I guess I would be 180lbs but that's pretty big for 5'8".
    No, I'm not Taiwanese.

    I'm thinking more like 5'8" 180, which is my ultimate goal.

    Boy, I wouldn't say a 20 pound weight gain, but I can compromise and say 10 Still, you bring up a good point that I didn't mention. Nice work.

    I'm 5'9 180 at 13% BF (tested this morning), I think this weight would be ideal at 6-8%. But I think I'll shoot for 200 at 8%.
