Where's the athletic or muscular option? BMI isn't quite a good indicator for athletes, Body Fat index or fitness standards are a better indicators.

186cm
84kg
11% BF (January was the last time I checked, gym has a BF scale, weight and definition seems constant since then)

4.76sec 40yd PB FAT (2019)
220kg deadlift 1R max
100kg Bench 1R max

I'll make an exception and be a bit cocky today.

Once you get past the stage where you have to impress females, the only issue is how much you can eat/drink without getting fat IMO. Therefore skinny is best.

Your metabolism does slow down with age, but it isn't as significant as people think.

What usually happens is that sedentary people's metabolic rate slows down, they maintain the same lifestyle and put on a kg or 2, the extra weight makes them feel more tired and they become even more sedentary and so on.

A person's habits has a far greater influence on their metabolic rate than their age.

Was going to post something similar.

100 kg
171 cm

BMI = 34 (obese)

39% muscle mass (high, on border between normal and athletic)

33% fat (high as well)

I must have small bones (not!)

(All according to my InBody home scale)

I’m more “Dad bod” than “fatso”.

I walk about 5 km a day (less with social distance happening) but don’t do much else.

For those interested in working out at home, I bought a couple of these recently...

http://global.gmarket.co.kr/item?goodsCode=1635680818

http://global.gmarket.co.kr/item?goodsCode=1717710832

Expensive but pretty awesome. Just wish they went a bit higher than 24kg (for dumbbell press mainly).

Anyway, I have most of my bases covered between these, a flat bench, and a telescopic pull-up bar. The pull-up bar is the door frame type, except it screws outward and wedges itself between the vertical surfaces of the door frame. No screws necessary (happy landlord) and super sturdy. I found all of the above on Gmarket.

I was thinking of getting those for my wife, she hates adjusting dumbbells.

I bought 2-layers of cheap gym floor padding, cat scratched the crap out of one end, but it's still pretty sizeable.
I have a flat bench and a simple squat rack with a barbell loaded to 100kg.
Other equipment for home are resistance bands (one of the best purchases for a home gym, hands down), bosu ball and stability ball.

These guys sell decent equipment at good prices.

Please don't derail this into another tedious fitness thread. There are plenty of those elsewhere.
