Have you ever seen someone 5ft 6in that weighed 200lbs and played hockey?
The half your body weight rule is a general guide, of course there are exceptions. I told the dude to start from there and then figure it out because generally half the body weight is what people use because that is just the way it is.
Obviously some people out there are going to be physically similar to the aliens in Close Encounters but realistically that would be rare.
... not to mention I was replying to the original poster who stated
"I am 5'7 160 pound adult, with a very strong upper body and am having problems finding a stick. "
