My current goal is to get to 150lb, then from then to go to the weight I should be at. What would that be?


Thanks.

6'2" you could be 200 pounds of muscle to look perfect.

Does it matter what "bodytype" I have?

Steve Reeves apparently had a theory.

"Reeves believed ones height represented the limit to which they could pack on mass. His main philosophy proposed keeping muscular bodyweight within acceptable limits to prevent the distortion of ones natural symmetry."


I read it in this article (down some):
http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/drobson207.htm

It has a handy-dandy chart. For 6'2", he says the max is 220 lbs.

Is that just 220 pounds or 220lb of muscle?

Also, how do I find out how much lb of muscle I have?

Just 220 lbs.

To find out "lean body mass" (muscle & bones), get your body fat percentage.

Then:
A) Weight (lbs)
B) % Fat
C) Fat = (A x B) / 100
D) Lean Body Mass = A - C

Viola! ;)

113lb of LBM? Woah. Is it supposed to be so high?
