BMI: Your calculated BMI is 26.6. This is a measurement that takes into consideration your height and weight. Ideally it should be between 19-24.99.

Resistance training: I am going to assume that what you want is to gain lean muscle mass now that your adult height has been reached, and also that you are doing resistance training and discovering you are a "hard gainer". Ignore all advice about increasing calories, read a scientific book on nutrition, work hard in the gym, avoid steroids, consider creatine & an electric muscle stim unit if ok with your physician. ...Read more

Probably normal: Especially since you have twins and both of them are lower on the growth curve for height and weight this is likely a normal pattern of growth. You would still need to have a discussion with you pediatrician to make sure, but there a certain number of kids who are above or below the curves and it is a normal pattern of growth. ...Read more
