If anyone is even interested in this topic any more, here is more personal (gasp!) data to illustrate my point:

The Height you entered is 5 feet, 11.75 inches. The Weight you entered is 139 pounds. Your Calculated BMI is: 19.0
This was age 19 @ 4% BF. I was fitter than most US Marines, but BMI says I was "underweight."

The Height you entered is 5 feet, 11.75 inches. The Weight you entered is 175 pounds. Your Calculated BMI is: 23.9
This was when I was most balanced (but not particularly strong) overall @ 8% BF. I never really pursued deadlifting or bench at this time. BMI says I'm high normal. I was just the average guy."

The Height you entered is 5 feet, 11.75 inches. The Weight you entered is 183 pounds. Your Calculated BMI is: 25.0
Uh oh! Hardgainer finally gains a few pounds in the gym and all of a sudden BMI says I am "overweight."

The Height you entered is 5 feet, 11.75 inches. The Weight you entered is 194 pounds. Your Calculated BMI is: 26.5
This was after I added 10 lbs of muscle and 130 lbs to my dead lift in 4 months @ 12-15% BF. Strongest I had ever been but sadly, BMI says I am even more overweight than before. Same BMI as that fat f*ck Phil Ricardo...but, since my BMI is the same, we must be in identical condition!

The Height you entered is 5 feet, 11.75 inches. The Weight you entered is 214 pounds. Your Calculated BMI is: 29.2
This one is hypothetical supposing I gained 15 lbs of muscle vs my personal best and now I'm almost as obese as Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime!"
