Some of you are pretty damn big and some of you may be actively adding mass (although there does seem to be a slimming down culture at the moment), but would you want to be VERY large, say 6'10" plus and 30 stone plus?

Doesn't like tall people very much.

6'10" would be the limit of how tall is like to be. I'd like to be 6'8-6'10" ideally. I'm 6'5"-6'6" now and have always loved being tall and never really liked someone being taller.

Wouldn't fancy 30+ stone though. Might hold 23-25 at that height without being too uncomfortable. Hold 22 now without being actively uncomfortable but have been 24 and it wasn't good. Like you said though I'm on board the slimming down bandwagon at the moment.


TLDR: No, that's too heavy.

Edit: just thought, I'd like to be Tom Stoltman's build.

Absolutely not. Big dudes don't live very long I'm afraid.

Bit too big that but if built the right way I suppose it can look good. Wouldn't want to be 6ft 10" and 15stone wet through lol. I'm 6ft 3" and 16st 7lbs but ideally would be around 18st if it was put on the right way

Shorter people live longer apparently. That's a big win right there.

That's way too tall and would limit a lot of recreational activities, driving some cars, some pastimes etc.

Even at a mere 6ft and 20st I find that there's things I've wanted to do but can't due to weight or size.

You'd need a serious inferiority complex to want to be a giant.

I would be happy at about 7'3"...Just as long as I was proportioned and had no giantism.

If a man was about 3 meters...then they would be about 8 times heavier than the average man which would be cool.

I would...but I expect if I were I wouldn't, if you see what I mean.

The "Largest Man" who ever lived is possibly Mills Darden, who was allegedly 7'6" and 1,000lbs or so, although frankly there is a considerable question as to whether he is just a made-up person.

If I could pick a height it would be 6ft 4...It is the last point where your height isn't the focal point of your life.

I'm your weight, but three inches shorter. I think 6'3/4 and 16 plus stone is a great size.
