Advantanges of a Slightly Higher BMI

I’ve mentioned this many times…

The magic range for that Movie Star Body is a BMI of 24 to 26.

This is the sweet spot where aesthetics meet strength.

What is important to note is this…

The difference between a 24 BMI and a 26 BMI can be 15-20 pounds, depending on height.

Let’s break down this BMI 24-26 range for someone 5’11”.

The Warrior (BMI of 24)

For a guy who’s 5’11”, hitting a BMI of 24 means weighing in at 170 pounds.

This is your lean, athletic build.

Think of Brad Pitt in Fight Club.

You’ll look GQ-ready, and shopping for those fitted suits?


You’ll turn heads with a chiseled face and a shredded physique that stands out on camera and on your social media profiles.

Greek God (BMI of 25)

*Ryan Reynolds is 6’2″ and is a prime example of the powerful Greek God physique in the movie Blade Trinity.

At 5’11” and 177-178 pounds, you’re in Greek God territory.

This is the balance between lean and strong.

You’re not just fit, you’re formidable.

You’ll have that perfect blend of muscle and definition that makes you look amazing in a t-shirt and strong in the gym.

You’ll still have the chiseled look and strength to match.

Superhero (BMI of 26)

*Henry Cavill is 6’1″ and a perfect example of the imposing superhero physique in the movie Man of Steel.

At 5’11” and 185 pounds, you’re rocking the superhero physique.

Muscular, powerful, and commanding.

You might not be at 6% body fat, but maintaining 8-10% body fat here keeps your testosterone levels optimized, your strength high, and your presence intimidating.

You’ll stand out in any crowd, and trust me.

So, at 5’11”, the difference between a 24 BMI (170 lbs) and a 26 BMI (185 lbs) is about 15 pounds.

Why BMI 26 Can Be a Game-Changer

When you’re at the higher end of the BMI spectrum (around 26), you have a few perks:

  • More Calories to Enjoy: You can eat more, making social situations a breeze.
  • Strength and Power: Extra weight means more strength. You’ll dominate in the gym and in self-defense situations if needed.
  • Intimidating Presence: There’s something to be said for looking powerful and commanding. It’s not just about looking good, it’s about feeling unstoppable.

The Downside?

It’s harder to look as shredded at a higher BMI.

You won’t be at 6% body fat.

But staying lean at 8-10% still means you’re in fantastic shape.

And with the right supplements like Kino Gains (Creatine HCL & Betaine), you can maximize your muscle mass and strength gains.

My Personal Experience at a Higher BMI

Last year, I got into a fight at a bar in Toronto.

You may remember that I had a bit of a black eye back then in a few videos.

A beautiful girl handed me a tequila shot from a bottle that belonged to a big Italian guy.

Didn’t even ask for it.

This girl just gave it to me.

The guy looked at me and started giving me the finger.

My buddy was like, “he’s just joking around.”

So he walked up to me, and I thought he was going to shake my hand.

He sucker-punched me in the face.

And at that moment, my rule is very, very simple:

If someone just talks shit, I don’t care. But if someone’s going to put their hands on me and get physical? It’s on!

Despite him having 40 pounds on me, my fast, accurate punches overwhelmed him.

I ended up kneeing him in the head and throwing him onto a couch before the bouncers pulled me off.

Having those extra pounds does feel like it made a difference.

But I’m not saying I was able to manhandle him.

This guy was like f*cking real life, Bob.

This guy could take some serious shots. It was like punching f*cking granite.

He got some punches in too, I just had a bit more speed.

But this extra weight and the strength that came with it helped in this situation.

The bouncers pulled me off him, and then I left the club.

No hard feelings against this guy.

Sh*t happens.

I was completely sober, and I think he had had several drinks.

I blame the girl!

Why are you giving me some other guy’s tequila, lol?

I understand why he was pissed.

I honestly didn’t know it was his tequila when I accepted the drink.

Anyway, having the extra 15 pounds at a 26 BMI helps if you need to defend yourself.

Especially if they are much bigger.

A bit of extra weight is definitely helpful in this situation.

A fast way to add fat-free muscle mass is with Kino Gains.

You will gain 4-5 pounds in just a few weeks and then steadily after that.

Increase your calories a touch and hit that 26 BMI.

I also recommend Mojo.

It will boost your Free T to ensure minimal fat gain from those extra calories.

Also… I may do a follow-up/email or video on fighting.

Sometimes, fighting is unavoidable.

I’ve been in a few fights and have seen many more.

I’ve learned some things.

It helps to know what to do in these situations.
