5 Feet 11 Inches and 155 lbs = Too Skinny?
I am a 5 foot 11 inch tall male weighing 155 lbs. I have more muscle than not and no bones sticking out except for my ribs, which have always stuck out a bit. Am I too skinny?

The reason I ask is because in high school I used to weigh 210 lbs. Since then I started going to the gym and eventually lost the fat. I stopped going as soon as I hit 165. So, being fat for a crucial portion of my life has made me look back and wonder if I am in fact healthier.

So, is 155 lbs too skinny? Just right? Should I lose more?

I'm 5'6 and 140, which is just about right.

I'd say 165 - 175 would be an ideal weight for your height.

Depends on your frame.

If you really want to know, take your wrist, neck, chest, waist measurements.

Then find a "body fat calculator" and "BMI calculator" and plug in your stats.

Then look up some height-weight charts for your frame.

Ideally, you'd add around 10 pounds of muscle and 10 pounds of fat; and weigh 175ish.

For reference, the average UFC fighter in the 5'10"-6' range fights at 170-185.

Depends what type of physique you want. For me, that is waaayy too skinning.

But I am 5'10" 250 at the moment. After about another year of bulking adding on another 20 or so pounds of muscle I will cut hard down to about 225.

You should be 97 pounds. Fat bastard.

Just kidding.

I like to still go by the Marine Corps height/weight standards. They have a minimum and maximum.

you need to get your body fat % tested by a dunk test... that will tell you how much fat you have and then you can determine if you need to load up on the pasta or not...

skinny but not too skinny. At 5'11", 145 would be too skinny. 165 would be ideal. I'm 5'9" 162 right now and I'm working like a devil to gain muscle but it frustrates me that I can eat eat eat eat eat to 164 by bedtime and then wake up at 161. It makes no sense and the entire day is used to catch back up to 164.

Probably a little lanky, but it depends on your build. I am 6'4 and proportionally structured, if I drop below about 175 people think I am dying or something. So 155 sounds relatively accurate.

I wrestled at 165 in eighth grade... 5'8"ish, my body fat couldn't have been above 15%, I would guess less since cardio was a huge part of my workout schedule at the time, plus hockey.

But I think I do have a very large frame, people never think I weigh as much as I actually do..

The average middle weight (185) cut down from 200-210 so that doesn't mean anything.

Anderson silva is 6'3 maybe a little taller. 5'10-6' is the 155 division.

ya, but maybe he's not going for that kind of physique. According to my preferences... I am about 6', 200 lbs right now with about 12% body fat and I'm have feel SATISFIED. I slowly gain strength, shed unncessary fat, build endurance, fast twitch, etc. etc. at this point.
