Casey Butt studied 300 natural champions from the last 60 years.

Determining Natural Bodybuilding Potential

If you are genetically gifted and big-boned, at 6% bodyfat (listed as competition weight below) you can hope to achieve:

Quote:
Height, 66 inches = 166.4 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 177.0 pounds

Height, 67 inches = 170.2 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 181.1 pounds

Height, 68 inches = 174.0 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 185.1 pounds

Height, 69 inches = 177.9 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 189.3 pounds

Height, 70 inches = 181.8 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 193.4 pounds

Height, 71 inches = 185.7 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 197.6 pounds

Height, 72 inches = 189.6 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 201.7 pounds

Height, 73 inches = 193.6 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 206.0 pounds

Height, 74 inches = 197.6 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 210.2 pounds

Height, 75 inches = 201.6 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 214.5 pounds

Height, 76 inches = 205.6 lean body mass potential. Competition weight = 218.7 pounds
I myself have profiled most major natural bodybuilders in the modern era and I found these numbers to be spot on.

Exceeding these numbers by more than a pound or two would make you one of the greatest naturals ever.

By Casey's study, Mariusz would have about a max natural lean body mass of 193.6 pounds. This is right in line with Kyle's study. Bone size can cause very minor variances.
