    Ideal Weight

    Im a 28 year old male 5'11 92 kilos 202 lbs recently started to get back into working out after a few years of relative inactivity. Im trying to find out what my fit fighting weight should be on these dimensions. Im also relatively small boned for a male.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I'd probably say drop to about 120lbs, you'll be a lean fighting machine with most likely a height advantage over most opponents.

    my guess would be 175 and I'm jsut guessing also depends on what you want to to do and body fat composition, and what you feel is reasonable or comfortable, otherwise wait for tae bo master to chime in.

    "Ideal Weight" is a nice concept, but unrealistic. Too many factors determine weight, and all can vary significantly from person to person. Screw weight and worry about body composition.

    Exactly. You want really nice toned abs, bicepcs, chest, and thighs.

    But seriously, the general idea is More Muscle + less fat = good.

    I'm 5'11" and 145 with a pretty good build, and I seem to just stay around this point no matter what I do (continously working out). I went down to 130 when I got mono a while ago, and I had to start all over again. I went right back to 145 after a couple months, exactly the same as before. I'm thinking if I want to get past 145 I'm going to need whey protein.

    There is no such thing as a magic supplement that will suddenly make you start gaining weight.

    Pregnancy can :D as for billoddie88, definitely just look towards body composition. I suppose if you want an idea, you could use the Marine Corps weight standard chart (for about 5'11", anywhere from 136-197lbs is acceptable) but keep in mind that some people are just naturally heavier due to muscle or bone structure. My old gunny was 6'1" and 320lbs, but the majority of it was muscle. He was Samoan, and those guys just naturally get big, even if they're doing channel-flickers all day. So body composition is much more important than ideal weights, as TaeBo has said.

    Start working at McDonald's. I was 135lbs before and 6 months later I'm 145lbs. This is without working out. I just started a few weeks ago. Just looking at the food makes you gain weight.
