@55 kg any height is too small assuming he isn't a midget.

Get eating some pies and pasta.

The appropriate weight depends on one's height. The mass of 55 kg would be appropriate for someone about 152 cm in height.

My height is about 174 cm, and at 24 my mass was approximately 75 kg, and it has been pretty constant over the last 40 years.

Screw the charts. Do you feel healthy? What you weigh now was my comfort weight for more than 20 years. Then I ballooned up to 58. That suited my sedentary lifestyle quite well. When baseball season came around, I threw on a muscle or two that took me up to 60. Back to 58 when the season ended. While this was going on, I was 178 cm in height. Age has taken its toll, and I'm truncated to 173 cm.
Okay... something about this thread makes we want to either burst into song or go and mate with someone. Since I can't sing... bye.

could you tell me about your Hight then i will exactly tell you that 55 kg is Ok or not.

I think anyone can point him to a BMI calculator. They are all bollocks anyway.

Danger has the right approach, does he feel healthy.

Man rule #43:
Your weight doesn't matter, so long as you can bench press more.

Only in Dreamland. I'm pretty sure that I can shoot you before you can get me over your head. :rolleyes:

The USAF has a nice chart that is the recommended min-max body weight for any given height male and female.

Evo is psychic!!!!

Kidding put aside, the BMI is what matters more than absolute weight versus height. You need to take bone density, and overall frame into account.

And automatic weapons... Never forget that an Uzi beats a black belt any day. I like being skinny, fast, and heavily armed.

Errr, not sure how this became an issue of combat, as body-building usually seems to be cosmetic. Having said that, I prefer an M-40A1 rifle with a good scope, a ghillie suit, and plenty of cover.

If you were stronger you could be more heavily armed.


Don't you know that having a larger chest means you can fit more grenades on your bandolier?

Hey, just look at Ahnold, in Predator... if you're big and Austrian enough you hack a minigun with your bare hands! True story! :rofl:

Looks like I won't be accepted without a good meal.

Whew, I'm safe! At least I was safe...until I gave up on weight lifting a few weeks ago and started jogging instead. But maybe if I start lowering my weight like this, my diminished bench weight will still be OK.

I'm sure there's a continuity equation to describe what I'm doing.

And where will you go about finding a non-rep. one?
