    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    A question about my ideal weight?

    My height is 5'9, I'm a Judo practitioner and I'd really appreciate your advice.

    What would my ideal weight be? I wanna look bulk and intimidating, but I don't want too much body fat.

    My current weight is 140 Lbs, I'm pretty lean...

    I used to be around 160 Lbs, I was huge and pretty bulk, but I had a lot of body fat.

    Thanks for your help.

    You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it

    This is the sort of question you really need to answer for yourself. I mean, given that you described 5'9" and 160lbs as "huge", we obviously have very different standards for size. Which is fine - it's not a right or wrong thing - but it helps to make my point.

    Put in some thought about your goals - judo, aesthetics, physical capabilities, food/gym bills, anything you can think of - and decide for yourself.

    @TheRuss

    You've got a good point.

    I wanna hear your opinion though, What do you think my ideal weight would be?

    To be honest, I wanna gain weight to fight, I lost all that weight after I stopped practicing MAs.

    Can I hear your standards?

    I'm 5'9, and weigh in at 205. I'm presently too scrawny, so if I were you, I'd shoot for around 250lbs, like Matt Kroczaleski (who also stands at 5'9).

    No, I am in fact not Matt Kroczaleski, but one can dream.

    In essence, if I were 5'9" with the same proportions as I have now but 8% or so body fat, I'd still have to cut one (maybe both) of my arms off to get down to 160, no exaggeration.

    Edit: I picked 8% because I wouldn't want to go any lower than that for aesthetic and functional reasons, not because I'm there (yet). Also, to emphasize what I was saying above, I am not you and you are not me and that is okay.

    Really? looking at you in your vids I always assumed you were kinda tall - 6'1, maybe 6'2... go figure.
