what weight do u have to be under to join the army?

In what weight reigon do u have to be around to join the army? I know you have to be in a certain weight band but i cant remember what it is, and since i went to the army carreers in january i have lots a lot of weight and would like to check before i go back! I have now been back to the army careers office and have found out the weight band is between 60 k an 75 k thank u for answers :)

You should be height/weight proportionate, but you will not be excluded if you have a little extra body weight. What they are more keen on is physical fitness so be aware that you will need to be able to run at least 1.5 miles in under 9 minutes.

Here's the chart for the US Army: http://usmilitary.about.com/od/armyjoin/l/blintweightmale.htm Note that the standards for joining aren't as tough as the maintenance standards once you're in. Also, weight isn't the primary focus - fat is. Scroll down about half-way to see the process for taking the measurements. http://usmilitary.about.com/od/theorderlyroom/a/bodyfat.htm This is the chart for people who are 5'5" to 5'10" http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/blbodyfatmale2.htm

One Big Awfull Mistake America
Below is a link that will give you the army height and weight index. I served 7 yrs and Im getting in shape and going back in.

Three things are factored in to the minimum and maximum weights for the Army: Height, weight, and age. Depending on what age you are, and what height you are: you are authorized a certain amount. Google the Army Height and Weight standards and it will lay it out for you. You can also go to 550cord.com and figure out how much you can way, according to your age and height, and how much body fat percentage you are authorized.

i know you have to have a BMI of at least 18, im not sure what your BMI is allowed to be at most.

it has to do with your height.
