I lifted for almost 1 1/2 years and got up to 185lbs at ~10-12% BF. My lifts weren't huge by any means (205 BP, 315 Squat, 350 DL), but I was the leanest I think I have ever been and the most in shape.
I am not there right now, and in fact I am pretty out of shape. I started back up and hope to frequent here to gain motivation and keep me in the gym. My finance is also offering her support. I am interested though, at my height ( 5'9") what weight range could I reach naturally in 5 years or more? I have seen some pretty lean mean lifters my height at 190, so that is possibly doable, but how about 200lbs? Whats your guess on the lowest BF% I would have to have at that weight?
I'm not just curious though, I would like to have an absolute goal. Some guys might tell you there are no limits, but I think there is at some level, your body only makes so much testosterone, can only put on and maintain so much muscle, etc. I would like to keep it below 15%, but I think there is something about being at the 200 mark.
What say you?
edit: just wanted to add that I am currently 200lbs with a pretty high BF% (22-25% likely, yes fat) and I am getting married on May 25th. We are planning on a Caribbean honeymoon so I would like to be fit and trim (aiming for 175) so assume the 5 years starts after I reach 175.
