A Question on Bruce Lee...

Can anyone help me out with this question…

Lets say Bruce Lee was 5’8 weighing 140lbs (10 Stone). If you was to convert that weight to a guy standing at 6’0, What does that convert to in his weight???..

If Bruce Lee was 6’0 what would he weigh, knowing that he was 140lbs at 5’8???..

Anyone???..

is this in search of what you think would be the ultimate power to bodyweight ratio? Cuz its different for everyone…take his weight in pound and divide it by his height in inches, that gives you pounds per inch and then multiply it by the height in inches youd like, so it would be around 173lbs(hmm thats near ben johnson’s weight…), but again it varies for everyone, I mean look at Barry Sanders, quick, fast, explosive, agile, unbelievable endurance, etc…and he was 205. Bo was 230-35, priest holmes 215, Ato boldon and Mo Green both in the 180’s, etc…

That can’t be right. You telling me someone who looks as lean and cut as Bruce Lee who weighed 140 at 5’8 would weigh 173 at 6’0???..

Nah, that ain’t right. I’m sure he would weigh far less than that for a guy standing 6’0.

You sure you got your sums right…

Lean and cut doesnt mean light weight, it means low bodyfat. Sorry did 2.5lbs/inch instead of 2.1. 140 divided 68=around 2.1lbs/inch, 2.1 times 72=around 150.

I dont think thats right because i tried it and i would have only gained 5lbs, by adding 2 inches to my height. Which cant be right.

Does anyone have the formula???..

it is right, because that is the amount of bodyweight he has per inch of height, so roughly it gives you around the weight hed be and have the same ratio of lbs per inch.

only if you assume that extra height doesn’t also mean extra breadth and depth

i guess, but again its just a rough idea, i would guess it could swing 5 lbs either way.

In my world, 5lbs is alot. I will stick with him being 150lbs if he was 6’0…

working on breadth being 25% of height and depth being 16% of height, an increase to 72" would put him at about 170 lbs

Can’t you use a body mass index calculator to figure that out?

dont think so…

No way…
