Hi, ok I am 200 lbs and about 5'10, I have a sizable amount of muscle on me. When I look at charts for what my weight is supposed to be it says healthy weight for a 5'10 person is 175. Does that take muscle into consideration. Think its time for a cut? I just hate losing strength and muscle i spent so much time on packin on.
are you talking about a BMI Chart? Those are for SEDENTARY individuals, not physically active ones.
Do you know your body fat % ? That'd be a better indicator of whether or not you're at a healthy weight.

Ignore those charts.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
