    Ideal weight for 5'7" male to look built?

    I'm 5'7" at around 145lbs with small bone structure. BF% is around 13-15%. I want to get more cut to get 6 packs but people say I look skinny and need to bulk up. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Wow, looks like I need to gain 20-30 pounds of muscle. How hard is it to gain 1lb of solid muscle per week? I've heard anything more than that will turn into fat.

    165-175 i'd say with bf low enough to see abs fully...

    you can look built perhaps even at a lighter weight, it's all about how you dress though... but you won't have 'presense'
    Current weight: 144LBS / 12% BF
    Goal weight: who knows / 9% BF

    DL: 375 x 1 raw
    BP: 240x1
    Front squat: 180x3
    Back squat: 200x4
    Dips: BW + 70LBS x 5
    Power clean: 170x1
    Snatch: 135x1

    I'm 5'7" and usually stay around 160-165 or so. Rarely go over 170. I don't look skinny IMO but I'm not huge either

    Your a freak though my friend! Your back is one of the best pound for pound in this section. And a wide back adds illusionary lbs to one's appearance.

    I do get obsessed with my back. I've been more obsessed with medial delts lately as that combined with a v-taper just makes the "bodybuilder" look... whatever that is

    Another man obsessed with back and shoulder width. My long lost ivory brother. If only more people understood the drastic changes in your overall physique that increased back and shoulder width can bring. I tried to do it through simply bulking up back in the day but I hit the ceiling when I could bulk no more than 240lbs. But doing various hammer chin/chin/pullup variations along with bulking the hell out of my medial delts gave me the drastic changes in my overall appearance that simply gaining weight and going heavy on everything failed to do.

    I agree: Overload has always looked bigger than his actual weight.


    I am also 5 foot 7 and a half inches tall, and traditionally, I have looked what I consider my best, at about 182.....so it is different for everybody....

    I competed many moons ago in a contest where I was under that weight, and although I was certainly more cut than ever,I thought I looked like crapola.


    no offense to the fine guys on this forum who compete in the Natural bodybuilding contests and I may join them someday in the mens masters, but, most of the contestants look like Biafran refugees!!!


    it is not an automatic that everyone looks "good" at a very low bodyfat percentage: yes, they may look "stage ready", but Good???

    that is open to argument and varies from person to person....

    Welcome to Bodybuilding.com pal.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Hey man, I'm 5'9 and I hover around 170 pounds. People can definitely tell I work out - but my physique isn't what I want it to be. I'd like to be more muscular and leaner (a common goal!) and I have to achieve this by keeping with my workout routine and cutting down my BODYFAT.
    In otherwords, if I could start anew, I would be much more careful with my diet to avoid adding those extra midsection pounds. So I would say go with a slow, clean bulk - once you are up to 170 you will have a damn great physique!!
