what is an ideal weight for someone who is 5'7, that is without getting fat?
thanks for the link
I kinda meant with the addition of muscle, though... but at what rate would someone who is 5'7 build muscular weight, as opposed to being fat because for example the BMI for someone who is 5'7 is a pretty small amount of weight.

in terms of caculating fat i guess the best thing to do is try and caculate your body fat percentage by getting your hands on some calipers.
Oh noes, I'm almost overweight!
Even for a non-weightlifter that thing seems off though.
If I was 5'7 I'd look to be around 175.
Seems like a good weight.
If that were my height, that's probably what I'd strive for, or maybe even higher. That's taking into consideration that you'd be lifting weights and that's only my personal opinion.
I'll be at 200 one day at 5'10 myself, but that's a long term goal.

Weightlifting sucks. I just like to lift heavy things.
Body mass index is junk. Mine was 29.8, ha, I still have abs.
To the OP, what is your wt now? You could get up to whatever you want without getting fat. My opinion would be no lower that 180.

He doesnt start fights he just operates on high speed in a low speed zone all the time .-BRAWL
Apparently, I'm grossly obese. I guess I'm not helping the national statistics on obesity.
Im a girl and 5'6" i weight 170 and am not fat I believe you could get up into the 190's eventually with out being fat obviously apreety good amount of muscle but techniqually its just a matter of time and what you do to achive muscle
I guess its how you define ideal, I would say at 5'7 about 220-250 is ideal.
I think I'm underweight on one of those.
The answer is something like <20% body fat, preferrable <15% for a bloke with the minimum not that important. Chicks need a bit more, can't remember the exact figure, but its something like 5 - 8% more than the boys, with minimum being more important. There are different opinions on this. Who's got a link?
180-190 would look pretty awesome with low bodyfat and lots of muscle at 5'7.
ya haha... made me kinda realize i have a lot of body mass
6'1 210lbs im at about 27 BMI haha
At 5'3.75" im technically well overweight at 160.
