Hey guys,
I've been reading on this forum for a couple of months now. Right now I only weigh 158 pounds and I'm 5'10" I would like to put on about 15 or 20 more pounds but stay at the same body fat. What bf% do I look like? Do my legs look proportioned? Any advice will be appreciated. I do a lot of cardio to prepare for the fire academy so that's how I got down to 158. I still lift weights but it seems like I have gotten a lot stronger but not putting on any weight.

Looking good, i'd say probably around 10%. If u've been reading for the last couple months, than u know that the most likely response u'll get is to eat more. Just stay a little over ur maintenance and u'll get size gains while still staying relatively lean. Do a slow clean bulk to gain size but maintain leanness. looks good so far!

You and I are similar in height/weight. I'm almost 5 10 and weigh about 153. However, I do no look like THAT! :(

I still have skinny legs and carry a bit more around the midsection. I also don't appear that thick overall.

This link used to show some sweet BF pics for comparison....at the moment it appears broken though. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=214711&highlight=Full+House+state

I actually weighed 175 about 5 months ago, but since I started working out again I lost 17 pounds. I would like to get back to 175 and still be in the shape that I'm in (Cardio) and the same body fat.

Looking good, gain 50lbs on a clean bulk and you'll look fantastic.

Looking good. That's a lot of good quality muscle for your height and weight. With just 10 or 15 pounds of muscle mass you'll look huge man! Good luck!!!

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I would be happy with 15 more pounds. Everyone always thinks I look "bigger" than what I weigh, and when I stand next to most people my weight and height I usually look a lot bigger. So does everyone think I'm about 10% bf?

Yup I'd say 10 give or take a lil.

Yeah, 10% seems about right. Maybe 9%, but it's all relative.

hey guys,
you were right on about my body fat. I just got an Accu-Measure and it said that I'm 8.95% body fat. I also measured my waist and it's 29"
