How to determine to the man the weight

The established standards of beauty set thinking as far as your weight meets these standards. Many formulas are designed for the average person. But for the man this calculation is a little underestimated therefore you shouldn't blindly seek to reach it.

It is required to you

  • - calculator;
  • - data on the growth and weight.


1. To calculate normal weight by Broca's formula, measure the growth. From this figure in centimeters take away 110 if you are less than 40 years old, or take away 100 if to you for 40.

2. If you have the asthenic physical build (thin bone), then from result take away 10%. If you have the wide bone – the hyper sthenic physical build, then add 10% to result. It is possible to determine by such formula rather precisely the weight as it considers not only growth, but still age and type of the physical build. The age needs to be considered as, maturing, the person gains weight, but these kilos aren't extra.

3. To define whether you have the excess weight, use the body mass index (BMI). It is called still Quetelet's index. Measure the growth (in meters) and weight (in kilograms). Divide weight into growth in the square. The result shows to what weight category you belong. For the man norm size BMI from 20 to 25 is considered.

4. If BMI less than 20, then you have the lack of muscle bulk. Register in gym, pump up muscles. If BMI lies within 25-30, it speaks about small surplus of weight that can be corrected easily, having played sports or leading active lifestyle. If index 30-40, then it is necessary to take measures to get rid of considerable surplus of weight. Here already some physical exercises won't help – it is necessary to address the nutritionist, to refuse addictions.

5. If your body mass index turned out more than 40, check whether you have serious problems with health. Such weight is already obesity with which it is necessary to struggle not independently but only after consultation of the doctor. The chronic disease of the endocrine system can be the cause of obesity. If not to treat him, there can be heart diseases as it is difficult to it to cope with increased load.
