    The standards get revised on a consistent basis. Currently, initial entry BMI is 24% in your age category. Once in you will need to adhere to the height/weight standards and maintain a 20% or better which for your height is roughly 190#'s max.

    I'm just going off the top of my head, but others will chime in for clarification.

      bai78 is correct, the entry body fat for a male between 17-21 is 24%. This is based on your neck and waist measurements. There are plenty of free apps out there you can use to enter your numbers and see where you are.
