I'm saying my BMI was typically 25~28 and I was performing well enough above average.

After only 3-4 months of real PL style lifting it was 28-30. If I had stuck with it and added another 5-10 lbs of muscle, my BMI would have been 30+. According to BMI, that's overweight/borderline obese and I was anything but.

I don't see how that's a useful scale. I see you called for it to be moved a few points, which I guess means we agree it's not useful as it is set up now.

Body Type BMI Index
Underweight <= 18.5
Normal weight 18.5 - 24.9
Overweight 25 - 29.9
Obese >= 30
