## Maximum lean body mass calculator

• Posted by a hidden member.
I found this interesting calculator:

http://www.weightrainer.net/bodypred.html

It has made me realise my goal of getting to 110kg is basically unobtainable

Although, I guess it is pleasing to know I am not that far off the maximum weight I can attain.

Huh interesting. I'm still 30 lbs away from my maximum according to this calculator. Nice to know I can still grow (however slow it may be)

Your estimated maximum muscular bodyweight at ~7% bodyfat is: 200.2 lbs

30lbs of lean mass after puberty looks like a more realistic number to me.

Age has to figure into this, however. After a certain age (late twenties?) there is a gradual tapering down in HGH and T production. There is an increasing low return on investment, so to speak.

Maximum Muscular Bodyweight and Measurements Calculator

Height: 72 in Wrist: 7 in
Ankle: 9 in

Your estimated maximum muscular bodyweight at ~16.6% bodyfat is: 230.6 lbs

Your estimated maximum bulked bodyweight at ~16.6% bodyfat is: 239.8 lbs

Your estimated maximum muscular measurements (@ ~8%-10% bodyfat) are:

Chest: 48 in Biceps: 17.3 in
Forearms:13.9 in Neck: 16.9 in
Thighs: 25.5 in Calves: 17.1 in"

good thing I don't even want to be that

which my goal of 195ish lbs is completely reasonable, attainable, and sustainable! other scary though... my legs are an inch and a half away from their maximum size (I'm at 187lbs now)

Apparently my max is around 198#.

APPARENTLY, my neck is already as bulky as it can be, at barely over 170#
(17 inches)

I always did think my traps and neck were disproportionately muscular/vascular for the pathetic amount of lifting I do.

Myth confirmed.

You have very big ankles (not sure if that is good or bad, I guess good?)

Not very accurate. Says I should weigh 200 when I'm 163 lbs. At 5% body fat I'm I should be 180.

But it's measuring your maximum possible natural weight, not what you weigh right now...

My opinion is that it is a starting guide as it is always going to include assumptions and averaging.

If I was to follow this guide, I would give up now as I am already at my maximum size (according to the calculator) for thigh, calves, neck and weight (and an inch off the rest).

Considering that I work erratic hours, travel a lot, training in different gyms, and don't always get to eat what I want nor sleep as long as I need - I do not think I have come close to reaching my potential.

If you look at these charts, you will be what you are. They are nonsense to anyone that trains. Based on what? Some study of Swedes? Please. The average weight gain of some Swedish guy? I have been 212lbs and ripped at 5'10". I have been ripped at 189lbs same height. These studies are just there to give excuses to guys that do not want to train hard.
