    post a picture. it is hard to say from a height to weight number. You could be very lean.

    Looking at it on paper though, 6'2" and 195lbs is pretty darn skinny. Most guys I know that are over 6' are high 200s and some over 300.

    I'm 5'11", 204. I'm not big. When dressed normally I look like I might mess around in the gym a bit.

    Off the top of my head, for your height (if you're not a fatty, in good shape), I'd say at 260lbs. - you'd be considered "big" by most people.

    A lot of people call me big, but I'm only 6 foot, 195. It's all highly subjective. When you're asking the opinions of people on a bodybuilding forum, you would probably have to be well into the 200s before someone considered you big here.

    Another way to look at this, since anyone that bodybuilds has no objectivity about how they appear - other than maybe photos... is to observe, as you progress, how much smaller others look.

    If you have alow BF% then you can be considered big.

    But to respond to the last other posts, yea, I get accused of taking the easy way out a lot. And its always the out of shape morons that make these false claims.

    I take that as a compliment. When I dropped from 217 to about 210 someone asked me the same question.

    It completely depends on other factors such as bone structure, BF%, and lean muscle mass.

    I look anorexic at 190. I look pretty lean at 210, and I don't start to look big until I hit 250 or more.

    Then again, big is a completely relative term.

    Way to subjective a topic.

    At my biggest I was 260+lbs @ 11-12%BF, & 6'4''. I was a good size but certainly not BIG. To me, I would need to add 20lbs to that to be considered BIG.

    It's amazing how the structure of the human body varies from one person to another. You see people that work out and can immediately spot "physical genetic weaknesses" that would prevent them from ever acheiving the asthetic ideals. It's difficult to see that in your body.

    I realize that my own body is too blocky. I'm thick where the taper points should be narrow - waist, wrists, ankles. My head is way too large (makes my body look smaller). My shoulders too narrow.

    Hey, if you've got a really small skull... it can make your physique look "huge"!
    I'm a "monster", but my head is 30" in diameter.

    idk, i don't really care about size, all i care about is going into the gym and making the guy beside me feel like a little bitch when i throw on 100 more lbs than him.

    Dude, you don't give yourself enoug credit. I know I made my fair share of butt jokes after you posted your ass in your gallery. All jokes a side, you look better than 99% of the people your age. Had you started training sooner, you probably would have been a beast.
