Yeah, but his physique is nothing you won't see in countless gyms across the country. His technical skill (and marketable face) is what makes him stand out.

You can see he's gained the weight very gradually over a few years - you can do the same.
You won't see his physique with a lot of people in gyms, maybe one or two, he spends a lot more time working out than anyone else can. Remember he is a professional athlete. Messi's better anyway, lol

I have a swimmer's build, and despite putting on a few pounds of fat due to a few months of inactivity, I'm still in the 180 region. They often say that for every inch of height, ten pounds is added. For a 6'2" guy, I'd say, provided he isn't overweight, or carrying an excess amount of fat (thin, but skinny-fat, for example)- I'd say that he should be in the region of 200, 210 at the most.

I'm 6'2, and I weigh 16 stone. Don't have much body fat, but I'm built like a tank - 38" waist, huge shoulders etc.
Personally, I think that when you're quite tall, being heavyset looks much better than being really thin.

Not true. My best mate has a physique like Ronaldo but slightly more muscular. He doesn't train night and day and in fact eats crap. Good genetics bro. But I still think you can get there by having a good diet and training 3-6 days a week depending. It's not about how long you workout. The intensity and balance of your workout and diet are the most important thing. It's 70% nutrition.

38" waist at 6'2 is large whichever way you cut it. You carry a lot more fat than you think. But as long as you're happy.

NO offence but if you have a 38 inch waist, you're certainly carrying some extra chub, haha. But yeah, I think well built does look better than lanky. I have quite broad shoulders but don't have much body fat. I think tall, slim but well build/ripped is the best build rather than massive where it just looks like you can't do much in terms of sport

yeah sure, I mean he must train with a lot of intensity, he must eat well, he can't eat junk food and look like that even though genetics do have a lot to do with it

Trust me, he eats crap: doner meat, fried chicken, fries, pasta flooded in mayo, crisps, coke...barely eats anything healthy besides a banana. I know how he eats cos we've room shared. A lot of body builders are like this: gifted with genetics. That's why a lot of them offer **** advice. They don't know how good they've got it. But this is a small group. The rest of us need to eat well and train properly. My friend also has questionable technique with most lifts but it works for him-- the results are there.

I have almost no fat on me. I can genuinely pinch nothing on my waist.

I am carrying perhaps 2lbs more than I should. I can fit into a 36" pair of trousers if I want something slightly tighter. I suppose it was misleading because I'm probably a 36" who prefers a baggier look.

I'd hazard a guess you've got 4 inches of waist fat. It's not necessarily pinchable. If you shred away all fat, people's waist sizes are tiny and many guys sub 30 even.

If anything, it is worse to have non pinchable fat. Visceral fat is highly correlated with heart attacks, diabetes etc.

In my opinion weight alone as a factor is irrelevant, it doesn't take in to consideration bone density, water consumption and fat and muscle weight. If I were you I'd focus on BF% and Muscle Mass. Forget all that BMI and average weight nonesense. Train until you're happy with your physique then maintain it. Drink lots of water, take in over 200g protein a day and try to get 8 hours sleep per night. Happy building!
