The equivalent weight for a 5'10" lifter would be:

5'10" adult male:

Underweight at 128 pounds or less (BMI <18.5)
Normal weight at 129 to 173 pounds (BMI = 18.5-24.9)
Overweight at 174 to 209 pounds (BMI = 25-29.9)
Obese at 210 to 243 pounds (BMI = 30-34.9)
Extremely obese at 244 pounds or more (BMI = 35 or greater)
These numbers are calculated off the Department of Health & Human Services website.

If this study is accurate, and I encourage everyone to do their own research, then a 5'10" 243 pound male has about the same risk of death as a "normal weight" adult. I don't meet many 5'10" 129 pound adult males, for what it's worth.
