### Maximum Weight Limit (MWL)

What is your MWL?? A simple formula to compute Max-Weight-Limit

For men and women, there is a baseline height and weight.
For men, the baseline is 5-feet, 9-inches tall and a Maximum Weight Limit of 175 pounds, meaning that a 5-foot, 9-inch tall man should weigh no more than 175 pounds.
For women, the baseline is 5-feet tall and a Maximum Weight Limit of 125 pounds.
From this base height, you simply calculate how much taller or shorter you are, in inches.
Man: add or subtract 5 pounds for every inch you are taller or shorter than 5 feet, 9 inches (from 175 lbs).
So, if you are 5-feet, 11-inches tall, you are 2 inches taller than the baseline of 5 feet, 9 inches. You add 5 pounds for each of those 2 inches, 10 pounds, to the baseline Maximum Weight Limit of 175. So, your Maximum Weight Limit is 185 (175 pounds plus 10 pounds).
Woman: Add or subtract 4.5 pounds for each inch you differ from the baseline height of 5-feet (60 inches: 125 lbs).

## MWL calculations in metric units:

For men, the baseline is 175 cm tall and a Maximum Weight Limit of 79 kg meaning that 1.75 m tall man should weigh no more than 79 kg.
Then, you add or subtract 2.25 kg for every 2.5 cm  you are taller or shorter than 175 cm.
For women, the baseline is 160 cm tall and a Maximum Weight Limit of 63 kg.

Women add or subtract 2 kg for each 2.5 cm  they differ from the baseline height of 160 cm.
