Just for clarification, you're a dude right?

 



Yeah. 108 for 5'4" is still a healthy BMI if I recall correctly.

 

Maybe if you're an olympic cyclist or distance runner...

 

Actually, when I was a skinny cyclist, I weighed 135 at 5'10, you're significantly under that. I also went up to 138-142 when I started racing. Ask @GraphicNovelty , I was skinny as shit.

What on earth does this have to do with anything? You're either in the "healthy" BMI range, or you're not. Hobby/profession/sport doesn't matter.

Just an FYI for ya hear, but listen reallllll close.

BMI is a one dimensional measure of health and a poor one at that. I could be a smoking alcoholic on the lung and liver transplant list and have a healthy BMI.

Your move slick.

I fully understand the shortcomings of BMI as an accurate indicator of overall health/body composition. But again, how would it change based upon one's hobby/profession/sport... slick?

Also, I think you meant "here" and not "hear", and "really" instead of "real." Aren't you in med school? Jesus, are you another example of someone who got in not because of merit, but because of affirmative action?

What? Your original comment was dumb and this one actually supports what he was saying.

real is also an adverb



i finally ponied up for an inzer belt. that weird buckling mechanism seemed like such a pain at first, but makes tightening and loosening the belt so much easier. it's just a little hard to take off. i dont know why i haven't used a belt until now. feels amazing

Then he should have followed it with closely.

close is also an adverb. they can both be flat adverbs

This is getting too grammatical for me. Also, phone autocorrects are fun sometimes.


Also also, 5'4 and 108 is a bmi =18.5 and which is borderline underweight. 20-25 is usually considered normal weight.

No it doesn't? My point was that a healthy bmi is meaningless when you're a guy that's 5'4 and weigh 108. The only reason I spoke of the type of those types of athletes is because they're often in the underweight or close to underweight zone just because of how important power to weight is in the sport. And pros are usually in the 20-21 range for cycling from what I've read. 

Track cyclists being totally different.

 

TLDR: Low bmi for endurance athletes is more 'normal' than for the average joe that works out. Being borderline underweight by BMI as an average joe that's posting on a thread about working out/lifting is GOMAD level, as someone alluded to earlier.

 

18.5 is not a healthy BMI barring incredibly uncommon bone/organ morphology or not having been through puberty yet.

18.5 is in the normal weight zone (albeit on the border). You pulled 20-25 out of nowhere.

What do his height and weight have to do with the validity of his BMI in this case? 5'4" is quite short. It's stupid to make a statement like that without seeing his physique. He probably just doesn't have a ton of muscle, and there's nothing unhealthy about that.

Except for, you know, that it totally is according to official BMI standards. Interesting that you start by saying BMI is a poor measure of health and then turn around and say there's no way he could be healthy. I think you just have no concept of what different weights look like at different heights and how much your body composition can affect things. My roommate is 5'10 135 lbs and probably 14% bodyfat, he is by no means "skinny as shit"

Based upon the completely dumb and ignorant things RTC has posted in this thread and others, I'd recommend disregarding him altogether from here out. He's the first user I'm adding to my ignore list.

Oh wait, I remember you! 

Back with another sock account are we? I forget what the last one you had was called, but you have a penchant for picking fights, eh?

You're both being dickheads here.

But let's not pretend this is thread is about health. This is where we come to reinforce weird body dysmorphia issues and once in a while post some thoughtful discussion about the most effective ways to build muscle.
post #56984 of 57256
Speaking of which. I think I'm done cutting for summer, could be leaner but I don't think I have enough muscle to look good.

I'm 5'10, 162-165 and most clothes fit great, face looks healthy and somewhat lean, and my cardio is good.

Any approximations on a bf? 15%?

Sorry for the ridiculous pose, not sure how to do this.

The fuck? Uh, no. Just because you've had arguments with literally scores of posters on this site doesn't mean that I'm one of them reincarnated.
