Aim for a 'healthy' BMI. 28 is usually tops.

I know of individuals who are "heavily muscularly built" argue the toss, particularly trained rank Royal Marines & Divers upon rejoining. The simple issue is that those entering into initial training for the first time need to have a reasonable level of CV fitness and those carrying excessive weight, be it fat or muscle are carrying extra weight which, so they say, heightens the risk on lower-limb injury. (Something the mob is quite risk averse about).

Inevitably people will argue the logic, citing examples to the contrary but the simple fact is that it is the standard applied for entry and the standard is non-negotiable, no matter who the individual may write to, to complain.
