I was 23 then when I finished at Cincinnati Tech 2 years later I weighed 165lbs.
I weighed 140 lbs @ 6-3 and was skinny as a rail when I joined the Marines at 18. 4 years later I was still only 150. I re-upped and 2 years later I was 175 lbs. All muscle too. Some guys add the muscle mass much later than others. I was a good athlete in HS but was simply so skinny my skill was often blown away by going up against much heavier guys. No matter what I did I couldn't gain weight. At 21 it just seemed that every malt I drank and every weight lifted added a pound of muscle that just a couple years earlier my body simply burned up instead of gaining.
