    at 5'4", 117lb-145lb is the healthy weight area.
    146lb-170lb = moderate overweight
    anything above = severe overweight.
    any below 117lb, that means your a skinny motherfucker


    all estimates of course

    if ur under 130lb and a guy i think honestly bulking to like 160 is good if you just want to be nice and healthy.

    but myself i gonna shoot for 180 and see what happens from there.

    The ideal weight for 5'4 is 122.7lbs. Scientifically determined. I'd explain the formula, but I doubt anyone would understand it.

    Girls tend to have a higher body fat % but lesser muscle mass. Hence, things like BMI work broadly over both sexes. As with anything measured by only one number--weight, BMI, etc.--there is lots of innacuracy in what it really means.
