What weight shoud I be aiming for?

I know this is probably going to be a hard question to answer. I'm 5.7inches and currently 158llbs at roughly 13% bodyfat. What weight should I be aiming for my height to get a build resembling 100 m sprinters? Is there some sort of formula for heigh/weight/build people can aim for?

Thanks

    i think about 175 lbs would look good, not too big for your height

    Is that the "cut" weight? What % B/F do you reckon sprinters have?

    to have a good six pack showing you need less than about 12% bodyfat, so yes if the sprinters you mean have six packs they are cut :)

    100m sprinters have a really nice physique , i really admire that. Gymnasts have some kick ass ones too...

    Dont want to hijack the thread but im 6"3 , actually wondering the same thing =/ (about the sprinters physique)

    Cut at 250 llb that's an additional 90 llbs

    Might be interesting seeing what sort of training and diet a sprinter have.
