I FOUND IT!!!!!!!

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Body Builder, Athlete.. Of course, he's very fit. Not much body fat, eh? But did you know that a BMI table would consider him OBESE:

Thank you!

For example, Arnold Schwarzenegger in his prime had a BMI of about 30.2, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has a BMI of 32.5. Their high BMI is a result of a high muscle mass and not due to being fat. This puts them much healthier compared to someone who has a BMI of say 26, but with a lot less lean muscle than them.

JUST as I suspected!!! The Navy's calculation of Body Fat/ie BMI is WAY off when it comes to people who are seriously FIT and have a lot of lean muscle mass... My husband would be one of those people!!!
