    I'm 5'7 around 215 at the moment and feel very small.


    I'd say 230-240 at 10-12%bf would be pretty ideal if your goals include scaring small women and children.

    at 19% body fat if you weight 155 then you have 125 pounds of lean body mass.

    5'7..id say 165

    Heres how i see things.

    Just look around at UFC fighters and notice the average heights of the different weight classes. Alot of light weights are 5'7-5'9 and they probally weight around 165 before trying to drop weight at 5'7

    thats probally the max one will drop for a fight....im thinking the average weight drop.

    20 pound weight drop is pretty much the max most can handle and probally doesnt happen as often as youd want to think....usaully a real big fighter like WelterWeight Matt Hughes will drop 15 pounds for a fight which takes like 5 days.
