Body fat makes such a MASSIVE difference
OK so an obvious comment, but I didnt realise just what a massively dramatic effect swapping a few lbs of fat for muscle could actually make. I was trawling through some of the classic bb'ers pic last night and came along this guy (Jules bacon - 1943 Mr America)
Now by any standards he has an impressive physique. He is only 10lbs lighter than me, is almost the same height and a lot of his other measurements are identical to mine.
I dont know whether to be happy that a lot of measurements are the same or depressed, as I am certainly no Bacon lol...
So i found some stuff about height to weight ratios, If you divide Jules Bacon’s weight (175 pounds) by his height (67 inches), you get this number: 2.61 (which is incidentely the lowest h:w ratio of all Mr Americas winners (Grimek was 3.2 !!!), this is assuming a 10% bf%
My ratio is 2.79, so this shows me 2 things, how much fat i am carrying and how much muscle i am not
So if you want to know (as a rule of thumb) how heavy you need to be to look like the guys from the golden era its simple, get your ratio to 2.6 at 10% body fat. DONE.
