Meh ? said on 29/Nov/23
His peak height was 6’5” not 6’4” & anyone saying 6’2” now is just plain disrespectful. 😂 I’ve met him several times through my life both when he was barefoot, & with shoes on. He’s always had more than 3” on Arnold. Also when Lou said he was 6’4” that was many years after he was done bodybuilding. Twitter wasn’t around in the 1990’s 😂
berta said on 27/Sep/23
peak 192,5-193 today he is identical to dolph. i would say 189-190: probably 190 cm if measured. He looks like a guy similar to arnold that can measure 1 cm taller than you expect.
Canson said on 31/May/23
6’3.5-.75 peak
6’2.5 today
Slamo said on 28/May/23
Never looked massively more than arnie 6-0.75. 6-3.75. Lou peak.

I loved watching the hulk as a kid in the late 1970s and early 80s. Like most back then i couldnt believe how huge the big green man was. I thought he was at least 7ft, and he had the biggest body build i had ever seen wich made him appear much taller than he was. But i didnt realise this till i got older. I always felt sorry for david banner at the end as he walked away trying to hitch a lift with his jacket tucked between his bag wich was always over his shoulder! It was a great time also for this type of proggrame! I was suprised when i was age 16 and found out lou ferringuo was 6' 5" tall, yes i knew it was still really big and with his huge body build. But i thought he was at least 6' 7" tall in his peak. But it was a brilliant show!
Original said on 31/Jan/23
In the 6'3.5 - 6'4 range in his peak. I would say 6'3.75.
JUSTDJIN said on 31/Jan/23
I met Lou today at my son’s school. He has hearing loss like my son and he came to talk about his journey with hearing loss and I also took a picture with him. He’s the same height as me. We were both wearing the same type of footwear, so I would say he’s 6’2.5 with shoes on. So I’m guessing prime Lou was about 6’3 barefoot. I’m sure he lost an inch or so with age and especially doing a lot of bodybuilding. Looked great for being 71.

Hi Rob

He claimed to be 196 cm tall. Do you think he was never that tall ( when we take his average height measurement during the day (meaning out of bed height and his low evening height divided by 2) ?
Editor Rob
It never seemed likely as a prime figure.
houss said on 19/Sep/22
@rob , The difference between you and lou is lesser than the difference between you and Brandon routh and yet you list lou 6'3 and routh at 6'2,5"
Editor Rob
They are pretty close in person, Ferrigno may have shrunk a bit more since I last seen him and be indistinguishable from Routh now.
Pierre said on 30/Aug/22
1984 Peak Lou next to Angela Bailey listed 157 / 5'1.75" in web = Click Here Click Here Again never 6'4" here imo
Space said on 2/Aug/22
Looks 6’2.5” easily in the pictures with 5’8” Rob.
Pierre said on 28/Apr/22
Ralf Moeller and Dick Durock,probably both guys legit 6'5.5" are looking like they dwarf a peak Lou supposed 6'5" = Click Here Click Here Click Here
Canson said on 21/Apr/22
@Duhon: I’d still give Moeller 1.5-2” on him. I think Lou was 6’3.5”. Now I do agree with Dolph Lundgren’s listing next to Moeller. He looked at least 6’4 with him and if Moeller was a solid 6’5 1/2 at a low then Lundgren appears only 3 cm shorter imho
Duhon said on 19/Apr/22
Lou looking quite close in height to Ralf Moeller here, Arnold must be standing on a platform Click Here

He was never 6'4 the , 6'3 1/2" peak , no more than 2 inches taller than Arnold

Arnold was probably no more than 6'1 flat at best

Wasn’t a full 6-4 peak. Oddly he’s taller now than hulk hogan who imo is sub 6-3.
V for 1984 said on 5/Jan/22
Certainly don’t believe he was 6-5 peak. Hulk hogan (6.5-5) had 2” peak imo.
Canson said on 27/Dec/21
@Rising: maybe I was low on his peak. I had 191 range once but I think 192 range now. I’m between the 6’3.5 maybe .75 perhaps peak for him. Maybe with Ali Baba 1” loss by then or maybe 2 cm if nearer 6’3
Rising174cm said on 20/Nov/21
I saw the pic with Ali Baba again and Lou looked closer to 6'2"!

That's honestly how he looks in a series of pics if Dolph is only 6'2.5" now: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here

And in this gym photo from December 2020: Click Here I believe Dolph still measures closer to 6'3" than 6'2", but that still makes Lou under 6'3" now.

Lou did easily look 6'3"+ into his 50s and might have still been 6'3" flat in his early 60s, but he's now 70. My father is Lou's age and he's lost about 1.5", but had lost just under an inch a decade ago.
Rising174cm said on 18/Nov/21
I don't remember except that he didn't look above 6'2.5" and I don't believe he is anymore. It's been 8 years since the more recent photo with Rob and if anything, reversing Dolph and Lou's current listings would be more plausible. Dolph being taller in a series of photos from one event was enough, but the separate gym photo confirmed this.
Canson said on 16/Nov/21
@Rising: how tall would you say Lou looked with Ali Baba? Of course they wasn’t in his prime when he had the picture with him
Canson said on 14/Nov/21
@Rising: yea the more I see it was probably max 3cm. Ralf was likely in the 196-197 range. Maybe 6’5.25 if he didn’t make 6’5.5” but he def looked over 6’5 flat imho. 193 does look good for Dolph the more I see
Strong 6'4" said on 13/Nov/21
6'4" at peak, 6'2" currently
Rising174cm said on 12/Nov/21
@Canson: Yeah, Ralf was 196 cm minimum and no more than 3 cm taller than Dolph in that gym video from 2003. Dolph could look 194 cm range. He looked taller in a full pic with 6'8" Scott L. Schwartz than Steven Seagal did in cowboy boots. I'd say Dolph pulled off 6'4.5" with Schwartz. He also had an easy 5" on Brandon Lee, who is supposed to have been 182 cm, but was probably 5'11" and in 1990, Dolph had 7" on Alan Light while slouching and Light was probably 5'9.5" without shoes.

I just say Dolph was 193 cm peak at his low because it's safest. Now I'd guess he'd measure 190 since he's still taller than Lou in that gym photo from a year ago and he was also taller at the event. After his hip replacement, he's actually pulled off 6'3" a fair amount, probably because he stands better. He said he had been in pain for years before.

But yeah, Lou wasn't as solid of a 6'4" as Dolph peak and he's shorter today.
Canson said on 26/Oct/21
@Rising: I don’t rule out the 193.5-194 for Dolph. He could’ve been my height at his peak. Rob could have him listed right. I’d surely say he’s a strong 6’4 before Ferrigno being a solid one. I’d def say Ferrigno was around what you alluded to with 192ish. Dolph could pull off that range next to Moeller as it looked as little as about 3 cm between them at times. Maybe 3-3.5 is the better gauge
Almost 180cm guy said on 13/Oct/21
Hopefully the 6ft 4.25 is not out of the question for Lou's peak height. Here are some of his photos with Adrian Paul from 1994: Click Here Click Here Click Here
Lou looked over four inches taller than Adrian. In my opinion it was closer to 194 cm than 193 and 1/4 inch over 6ft 4 would be fairer as his peak height than flat 6ft 4.
Editor Rob
It's tricky with those shots, because maybe ground isn't perfect and the angle might help Lou a bit.
Black Noir said on 9/Oct/21
Yo rob is his 6’4 peak anew height? Or was it always there? How tall is he with Eric bana in there old 2003 pics?
Editor Rob
years ago I gave him a fraction over 6ft 4
Stinky 186 cm said on 27/Aug/21
I loved the Incredible Hulk show it was so cheesy and it really felt like something from its era hulk was definitely 6’ 4” maybe a little under at his peak and now he’s about 6’ 2 1/2”
Matt logan said on 27/Jul/21
Lou more like 6'3" flat in 70s now 6'2"
Ian C. said on 12/Apr/21
Ferrigno has had both knees and both hips replaced, which would probably have affected his height. Competitive bodybuilding is dangerous for anyone after the age of 40.
Lancaster said on 8/Mar/21
With Donald Trump, he looked sub 6'3.
Covvvid1984. said on 3/Mar/21
I’m think he’s a peak 6.3.5. Now looks 6-2.25.
Mickie said on 19/Feb/21
I'm not sure about his prime height, but his current height is over listed by at least a half inch. He's 6'2.5" max today, maybe trending more towards 6'2" flat.
slim 6'1 said on 1/Feb/21
192 peak
189 current
Lancaster said on 22/Jan/21
192-193cm peak
189cm current
Rising174cm said on 21/Jan/21
Clearly shorter than 6'2.5" current listed Dolph Lundgren once *again* last month: Click Here So I'd say 6'2.5" is as much as I'd give Lou currently and only because I think Dolph might still measure more 190 cm as opposed to 189 range standing tall.

@Canson: Yeah, I'm agnostic on whether he was a full 6'4" peak, though I wouldn't guess Lou under around a solid 192. Of course, that's peak. Now he is indeed lucky to still hit 189 seeing him with Dolph who has shrunk a ton peak. If Dolph was only 193 peak himself then I do have a hard time imagining Lou was every bit as tall peak.
Alan mctavish said on 7/Jan/21
I loved the hulk when a was a kid in the early 1980s with lou. I thought he was 6' 10" when a was a kid. He just looked huge! And with no shoes on lol. A would put him down as 6' 5" easy in his hulk days. 6' 3" sounds a joke to me! He may be 6'3" now. But back then no chance!
Canson said on 2/Jan/21
@Rising: I agree on both. Lucky to be 6’2.5 but possibly 6’2” today. Peak my guess is 191-192 range maybe 191.5-192. 6’3.5” is fair imho as I never quite got a 6’4 impression
Canson said on 2/Jan/21

Rising174cm said on 31/Dec/20
6'2.5" today if he's lucky. Don't know if he was more 6'3.5" or 6'4" peak, though I think the low angle makes the difference with Arnold look even greater than it really was.
Dred__ said on 31/Dec/20
Rob are sure ferrigno current height is 6ft3 ?
He looks this with ali baba
Click Here
And this with dolph lungren
Click Here

Probably is 6ft3 the time you see him, but current height (2020) seems a little bit optomistic, espacially next to 6ft6 ali baba who look a good 4 inch taller
Editor Rob
last time I seen Lou was a few years he could have lost another fraction and be under 6ft 3 now
Pierre said on 28/Oct/20
Next to Rob he looks hardly 6"3'.Maybe full 6"3' peak.
Hong said on 28/Oct/20
Click Here The guy beside lue is listed as 5 ft11 and 5ft10.
Benjamin Hansen said on 27/Oct/20
I'm 189cm (6' 2.5 in) barefoot. I saw Lou at an airport in LAX a few years ago (2015). He was clearly still a very large man (broad shoulders), and roughly my height, wasn't wearing cowboy boots, and was much taller than those around him while standing in line for his flight. That makes him 189-190 cm now, and perhaps 192-194 peak, which justifies his 6'4 billing, and makes peak Arnold around 186 to 187cm, which is reasonable except for everyone who wants to claim something crazy.
Slim 6'1" said on 25/Oct/20
193 peak
190 today
Carlos172 said on 30/Sep/20
I can't believe some people here, say Lou is only 6'-2", or even 6'-1"! If editor Rob saw him in person 7 years ago when Lou was 61 years old, and said he looked about 6'-3", couldn't he be 6'-4" in his 20's? If he was 6'-3" at 60, how could he only be 6'-2", when he was in his 20's?? Makes no sense! I don't know about 6'-5", but 6'-4" when he was young, I think it's possible. You can tell in his early movie rolls that he's a big man, as well as in his competitions, much more than 6'-2"!
Also, people saying Arnold is only 5'-11", is absurd! At least 6'-1" peak height, is right.

Lous father was tall, I’m gonna say 6ft3.
Pierre said on 3/Sep/20
Canson said on 20/Aug/20
Lou isn’t standing straight with Laroquette. There isn’t that much of a difference in their primes. Laroquette could’ve been my size or up to 6’4.5” but Lou wasn’t a peak 6’4”. He was 6’3” range. For Laroquefte, I don’t rule out a strong 6’4 being I saw him briefly in the 90s walk past my father who at his peak was a solid 6’4” afternoon height and he looked slightly taller although I wasn’t height aware then and it’s possible posture was different as well as footwear

@Canson= But John Laroquette is not straight too...
Canson said on 2/Sep/20
I would’ve guessed Lundgren taller than Ferrigno. By nearly an inch in their primes
Hong said on 29/Aug/20
Click Here They both look similar.
Canson said on 28/Aug/20
@Rising: I’d lean more toward a 192 listing than 193 for his peak
Rising174cm said on 24/Aug/20
6'4" peak is fine, I guess, though I wouldn't rule out 6'3.5", tbh. However Lou is 6'2.5" max these days, especially since Dolph Lundgren -- who has lost a lot of height himself -- is taller and Ali Baba made him look closer to 6'2" than 6'3", iirc. The average guess for peak and current may even be spot on. 6'3.75" peak and 6'2.5" current would make a lot of sense, but I don't rule out a solid 6'2"6'2.25" these days since it's been a number of years since Rpb's pictures.

Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Aug/20
Pumping Iron I think gives the best summation of Arnold and Lou at their peak. Arnold clearly towers over everyone in Golds barefoot and many still insist he was less than 6ft1! And Lou waking down the street in New York was clearly a gigantic human being.
Matt6'5 said on 2/Aug/20
Is it me , or has he developed a rounded shoulders/neck hunch?
Arch Stanton said on 2/Aug/20
Agreed with Rampage, he looked 194 if anything in Pumping Iron to me.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 30/Jul/20
190cm now is probable. Peak was no less than 6ft4
Editor Rob
Check Lou back in 2004 with Van Damme, probably just after he was working out too.
Canson said on 29/Jul/20
Agree with Berta. Maybe even more like 191-192 and 189.5-190

About 190cm peak. Nowadays 188cm. The 195cm claim is absurd.Tall guy especially for a bodybuilder.
Big King said on 10/May/20
Well, Ferrigno stands 192cm or 6'3.5" nowadays and 195cm or 6'4.75" when he was younger.
Cockstride said on 5/May/20
I think 6-3 range. Hulk hogan said he was taller by a couple of inches. 6-5 range is my opinion on hogan. So Lou imo is 6-3 guy.
Canson said on 27/Apr/20
@Editor Rob: was he the full 6’3” in 2013? I don’t remember when Ali Baba met him but he didn’t look 6’3” next to him imho. Maybe 6’2.5”
Editor Rob
last time I seen him, he was much closer to 6ft 3 than 2.

Here is is in "I Love You Man" with 6'3.5" Jason Segel. They are pretty much eye to eye: Click Here

Here is Lou at what probably was his peak height circa 1973 next to a peak Arnold at 6'1"

I have no clue why people here would "downgrade" Lou to anything less than 6'3".

Imo 6-3.5 peak max. Maybe even 6-3. Today looks 6-2 max.
Revskull said on 17/Mar/20
so I don't think Lou was ever taller than 6'2", max peak height. The reason why I say this is that he was on 'Night Court' alongside a legit 6'4" John Larroquette, and a 6'8" Richard Moll. It was the episode where Lou acted as "The Klondike Butcher". It is very easy to see that he is a full 2 inches shorter, maybe more, than John Larroquette. He looks half a foot shorter than 'Bull'. They wouldn't have wanted to understate his height and size, given the role he was playing. Peak Height guess, 6'2"
Bob da cob. said on 13/Feb/20
More a strong 6-3 guy rather than a legit 6-4 guy.
Jkiller said on 8/Feb/20
189.5cm nowadays, peak was 192-192.5cm.
Big King said on 23/Dec/19
Well, I would say that 6'4" is Ferrigno's morning height. I would give him a solid 6'3.5", End of discussion!
Nearly 180cm guy said on 5/Dec/19
Hey rob! Recently, I sent a picture of Van Damme and Lou from 1991 and pictures of their footwear to justify why I think Van Damme really was 5'9.25", I hope you looked at what I sent. However, let's forget about Van Damme peak height for a moment! I have one question:
Do you think that Lou at the beginning of the 90s was still close to his peak height at the age of 40 or could he lost at least small fraction?
Editor Rob
By 40 a small loss is possible for Lou, but not like 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

Needs a downgrade to 6-2.5 at least
Sotiris Gravas said on 23/Sep/19
Rob, given that he's definitely not taller than Dolph Lundgren, you should at least downgrade Lou to 6'2.5".

Today Lou could be similar range, but 6 years ago I thought he could look nearer 6ft 3

I'm guessing the custom-made shoes that Shaq wears gives him substantial height boost... definitely more than your typical 1-inch boost. Supposedly, Richters wears size 51EU (or 16.5 US), whereas Shaq wears size 22 and Lopez a size 20. I should mention that I also see size 23 for Shaq, and supposedly he started off w/ size 20.


Yeah Shaq has huge feet among the biggest in the NBA, his feet are much bigger than say 7'6" Yao Ming who only is an 18 US.

Richters has a 51 euro and Yao has a 52 while Shaq wears a 56/57!!.
Canson said on 3/Jul/19

So Lou is 6' range then? Look at how much height he is dropping next to lou, draw the lines he barely meets his shoulder if straight.
Caruso Victor said on 13/Jun/19
They picked Lou to play a 7’0 superhero and he was only 6’3???
I heard the guy who played Jaws in James Bond movie was first choice to play Hulk due to his phenomenal height, but he didn’t have Lou’s incredible physique. So they traded height for worked well though. It’s amazing how the right camera angle can add inches to your stature!
Sotiris Gravas said on 20/May/19
@Editor Rob The pics I posted of Ferrigno w/ 6'3.5" DeMarcus Ware (footwear visible)... as well as pics of Ware w/ legit 6'5" guys like Peyton Manning and Derek Wolfe demonstrates that Ferrigno simply can't be 6'3". At the very most he would be 6'2.5". I'm curious, why the reluctance to downgrade him? And I'm not just talking about current height. He was never 6'4". The video evidence of him on "Night Court" next to John Larroquette is proof positive IMHO.

Sotiris Gravas said on 14/Apr/19
@Ian C. Actually, Ferrigno is wearing shoes, dude.

Here's YouTube footage of him on "Night Court"... Click Here

What accounts for Larroquette's greater height is that Ferrigno was never more than 6'3" peak height.
Why Rob hasn't already downgraded him is a mystery to me.

And yes, a 6'3" Lou means Arnie was never more than 6'0.5" peak. And by "never," I do mean never.

@Johan The pic I already posted of Ferrigno w/ 6'3.5" DeMarcus Ware 100% proves he's not 6'2.5" today.
Johan 185 cm said on 11/Apr/19
6'2.5" today, he didnt look a full 6'3" with Ali Baba and struggles to look taller than 6'2" guys.

He looked max 6'3.5" peak.
Canson said on 9/Apr/19
@Viper: probably 6’3.5 or 6’3.25. I doubt he’s still 6’3” today
Ian C. said on 9/Apr/19
Actually, Sotiris, in the photos of Ferrigno and Larroquette, Ferrigo is almost certainly barefoot, which would account for Larrogquette's apparent greater height.

Lou looked 6-3 on night court. I'm unsure on his peak

But Lou was listed 6'5" during his career. You'd have to imagine that he claimed 6'5" at one point or another.
Sotiris Gravas said on 18/Feb/19
@viper When I met Lou at a comic con around 10 years ago, he was at least 6'2". If DeMarcus Ware isn't even really 6'4", then Lou is around 6'1.75" max now. Where does that leave Hogan...? Click Here Hogan might be 6'2.25" now. Definitely not 6'3".

Also, I just noticed Lou is tiptoeing next to Hasselhoff in this pic... Click Here , which explains why he looks taller as compared to other pics, which had me wondering (you can tell by the shadow under his foot). Worth noting, The Hoff doesn't have big heels on...
Canson said on 18/Feb/19
@Viper: he’s not less than 6’2” I doubt but in the pic he could look a lot smaller. Ali even said 6’2.5 is possible but he thought 6’2” flat or 6’2-6’2.5

Lou with Baba looks like a bigger difference to me than Shawne Merriman and Martellus Bennett

Eric Bana is a solid 188 cm tall, and Hiddleston 187-188 according to Rob, and I totally agree. This make Big Lou still 190 cm at least, maybe a full 6'3". Excellent result for a sportsman of 68 years old!

@Sotiris: I think Bana is legit 6’2”.

@Christian: Lou with Ali Baba could look 6’2 imho maybe best case 6’2.5 but really 6’2.25 is the most I see
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 31/Jan/19

6'2" flat for him is a bit low I feel. I'm thinking more 6'2.5", but maybe Sotiris could be on the money.
Rising - 174 cm said on 30/Jan/19
Considering estimates by both Rob and Ali Baba, I think 6'2.5" is fair. Still haven't seen enough to say 6'2" flat, though that may not be far off for Lou. At minimum, I can't give him even a mm more than Dolph today after seeing Dolph look clearly taller in 4-5 photos from that recent event. 6'2.5" is also the lowest I'd go for Hogan today and I think he's still closer to 6'3" than 6'2". I'd also bet Bana is closer to 6'2" than 6'1", if not a legit 6'2" and Lou was still a legit 6'3" in 2003. Kimmel is also more 5'11" minimum than max, imo. I do think there's more than enough evidence to conclude Lou had shrunk into the 6'2" range and I suspect Rob would agree now if he saw Lou again in 2019.
Canson said on 28/Jan/19

@Sotiris: you said it the same way that Ali Baba did when he saw Lou in person. That he looked 6’2-6’2.5 back then as well not 6’3”. The pictures with Ali Baba suggest that he was around 6’2 and maybe 6’2.5 if he stood straight. I think peak Lou was 191-192 max

A couple of more pics of Lou and Dolph, 2nd one shows footwear: Click Here Click Here Dolph is bending his knee in the 2nd pic and I can't tell if Lou is going up on his back foot, but Lou's shoes look a little thicker if anything. Lou doesn't look near 6'3" with Trump either, though the pic is pretty small and it wouldn't surprise me if Lou was dropping some height. But I think at least a downgrade to 190 current would be pretty safe. It's still tough for me to say whether Lou was 193 peak or just 192.
Rising - 174 cm said on 29/Dec/18
@berta: Good find, I didn't see a shot of them standing until now, but yeah, Dolph definitely looks taller in the pic: Click Here I know Ali Baba didn't think Lou was above 6'2.5" and it seems like he's no taller than 190 cm these days, imo. Lou might be dropping more height with Crews, but if he isn't then he's definitely shorter than Dolph now since Crews has always been shorter than Dolph. I believe Dolph and Lou trained together in the 80's. It'd be very interesting to see them back then still at their peaks.

Bradley said on 15/Nov/18
Always at celeb signings, I always looked at the top of his head. He's 6' 3" now, doubt much more than 1/2" more peak.
Canson said on 12/Nov/18
@Rising: I gotcha. I have him as a peak 6’5” too
Rising - 174 cm said on 9/Nov/18
@Canson: I have Cooper at the full 6'5" too. I was referring to Lou's 6'4.5" claim. I was just remembering how I believed Lou's claim years ago. @Pierre: I've seen that photo with Ralf and Lou does look much shorter, but the only thing I wonder about is ground. He looks 6'3" max with Durock too, though the low angle could exaggerate the difference. Difficult to tell how much shorter Perry is there due to ground and posture. Lou looks maybe 6'3" or just over if Perry is 6'2", but Lou might have ground advantage and Perry might be standing straighter. He's not much shorter than Ralf in the second photo, but Ralf is leaning and might be on lower ground.
Canson said on 9/Nov/18
@Rising: you’re saying 6’4.5 for Cooper? That surprises me as I would’ve pegged him a legit 6’5” at his peak too

Rising - 174 cm said on 5/Nov/18
Lou has had 2 hip AND knee replacements plus he has degenerative disc disease so it makes sense he's lost a good amount of height. He didn't look taller than Ali Baba thought in his pic with Lou and Hasselhoff can look an inch or more taller now so 6'2.5" is possible and a 190 cm current listing might be good. Lou did look taller than Hulk Hogan in this 2014 pic: Click Here Granted, you can tell it's not easy for Hogan to stand like that and Lou looked a bit shorter than Hogan overall, imo back in 2005: Click Here and Hogan wasn't over 6'3.5" by that time so Lou would already be 6'3" flat the year before Rob met him, but he was at least that when the Hulk film came out in 2003, possibly a bit taller since he was noticeably taller than 6'2" Eric Bana and Jon Voight. He looked huge in the 70's and I always figured he was 6'4", which I still don't rule out, but he could look more than just an inch shorter than 6'5" listed Michael Cooper back in 1985: Click Here Click Here and the 6'4.5" claim(which I probably bought once upon a time) does make me wonder if that was a shoe height, though some do just pad their height by 1/2" or get measured earlier.
viper said on 5/Nov/18
He only looked 6-3 on Night Court.
berta said on 5/Nov/18
i dont know if i would argue 191 max at peak :P but 192 seems very possible. He looked at best 193 cm peak. I would go with 6 `3 1/2 peak and 6`2 1/2 today. Very legit 189 today seems more possible than a full 6 foot 3
Canson said on 28/Oct/18
He looked around the same height both times Rob met him. However, Ali Baba said he’s 6’2 maybe 6’2.5 and he’s closer in height with Lou than Rob
Canson said on 28/Oct/18
@Christian: agreed. 6’3.25 is the max for him peak
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Oct/18

Could be 191 peak and 189 today.
Canson said on 10/Oct/18
@Christian: I think today prob 6’2 range. I know Ali Baba pegged him 6’2-6’2.5 in person a few years back so i agree with your estimate based on how they looked too. I think peak he was only 6’3” and not 6’4”
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Sep/18
Looks max 189cm in the bottom pic.
Canson said on 20/Sep/18
He was never 6’4 barefoot. Peak 6’3”
AnonymousMe said on 18/Aug/18
...literally just saw him at a Terrificon. He was maybe 15 feet away when he stood up. I'm just a bit over 6', and currently, I would not put him at any more than 6'2. Given I always read as a kid that he was 6'5, it was a little surprising to not see him as really huge, but just normal tallish.
Canson said on 14/Jul/18
I agree with Mickey! Max 191.5 or 191.7
Micky said on 20/Apr/18
I'm voting 6'3.5" peak and 6'2.25" today.
berta said on 4/Apr/18
i think is strange that he was listed same height in 2006 and now? why would he shrink full inch at the age of 53 and then not shrink more now at 65? i really think that if he was 191 back in 2006 then he could have lost a fraction by then and was 191,5-192 peak and 190,5-191 in 2006 and 190 by 2013 and by now he is down to 189. Could be heading to 6 foot 2 flat . Arnold was probably 6 foot 1 flat in the evening. and 187 range after laying donw for a hour ore two.
allornothing said on 23/Mar/18
I met him at a con a few months back. I’m 5’9 and he was maybe 5 inches taller no more. Maybe 6-1.5, 6’2 not to mention I had less foot wear than him. I don’t buy 6’3 except maybe peak height.
Bobby said on 7/Mar/18
He looks taller in the top photo than on the bottom. Why is that?
Canson said on 18/Feb/18
@Real Cavhill: hogan at his peak was a legit 6’5”. He’s had extensive surgery which is why he’s lost height. Today probably 6’3” at his lowest. I saw where Alan32080 has met him and pointed to 6’3.5 but Alan also said he dips to 6’2.67 at his low. As for Louie prob 191/192 at his peak. Could’ve been in the 6’3.5 range easily as he had Arnold by 2 or so. I think Arnold tip top peak was close to 6’1 if not a full 6’1”.
Canson said on 28/Jan/18
@Christian: yea peak. My bad!

Maybe 191-192 (Strong 6’3) today Ali Baba met him years back and said 6’2 maybe 6’2.5. He didn’t look anything close to ralph moeller in height
Jordan87 said on 25/Jan/18
@ Christian,

I am trying to Picture Louie's Hair Out of the Equation in the top pic, I take away the 6'1, However I would think 6'1.5 is the highest he looks ( Including his lean) so you are correct there I would think. I can tell you him claiming 6'5 again is pretty dumb.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 25/Jan/18

I gotta disagree. He looks 6'1.5"-6'2" next to Rob with the lean IMO. Without the lean he can look 6'2.5"-6'3". But I agree that he was never the full 6'4" at peak.
Jordan87 said on 24/Jan/18
He looks 6'1 with Rob in the top pic but is most certainly leaning. STraighten him up in the top pic and I believe he comes at around 6'2 easily" on the height chart. This of course is at age 62, so a loss of around 1" is possible.

Peak height he had to have been hovering around 6'3", possibly breaking that mark.

@Canson.....This is the first time I agree with you buddy. I thought the Hulk was 6'4" or 6'5" but somewhere along the line I heard something that he was around 6'3". I wasn't sure because I was led to believe Arnold was 6'2". After being convinced that Arnold was no taller than six foot and a half inches, 6'3.5" looks right for Big Louie.
Caaq said on 7/Dec/17
Rob... i have a question for you? In the pictures where u have a height scale superimposed on your photo with that of a celebrity, in those the one with lou ferrigno, it shows ur hair kind of touching 5'8.5". Well is that measurement from the ground and including shoes? Would that mean that while wearing shoes you are about 5 foot 8.5 inches and lou ferrigno in shoes would cover the 6 foot 3 mark?

That is surprising. Because lou looked like he would be able to have his hair touch about 6 foot 4 or 4.5 inches in shoes in his recent movie Instant Death in which he looked pretty huge.

I saw his pictures with david hasselhoff n both were wearing similar shoes but david possibly had half inch on him. Though lou is a bit slouched as compared to david.

But strangely for some reason david doesnt seem a full 6 4 often. He looked more like 6 2.5 or so.

So yes ..i guess lou would be like 6 2 rock solid barefeet n maybe 6 3 in shoes nowadays.

But please do reply to my question.
Editor Rob
it's as if I was barefoot, since I'm slightly over 5ft 8.

In sneakers I am anywhere from 5ft 8.75-9.25 depending on the styles.
Canson said on 4/Dec/17
I think the only one of these bodybuilders that was his actual claimed height (or near it) was Ralph Moeller. He was easily the 197 cm he’s listed and only rounded up to 6’6. Ferrigno couldn’t have been much more than 6’3” or 6’3.25 and maybe 6’4 and change in shoes. Clear height difference between the two.

Lou Ferrigno appeared on an episode of Chuck opposite Zachary Levi. Google lists Levi's height as 1.91 m or 6'2", but I've seen 6'4" as well. Levi definitely was taller than Ferrigno in that episode as you can see here.

ferrigno can have been 193 at peak but ralph moeller was npo less than 2 inches taller. i think lou could have been maybe little under 193 on bad days.
Carlos172 said on 30/Jul/17
I'm a big fan of Lou, and Arnold, since I was a kid! I've seen all of their movies! In my opinion, Lou's peak height was: 6'-4.5", and 6'-3" now. And Arnold's height: 6'-1.5" peak, and 6'-0" now.
Pierre said on 17/Jul/17
Click Here =when i look at pics of Lou he seem to be lots of time in comfortable heels which could give him a little more height no?

@Duhon. Wow in that pic with john Elway, Lou only looks 5'8..he may be a lift wearer!
Those'd be quite some lifts.

Don't know who claims that's John Elway in the pic with Lou, but pretty sure that's former NBA player Mark Eaton and not John Elway.
Here's a picture of Eaton for comparison.

Mark was listed 7'4" in his playing days and admitted in an interview once that he was 7'3 3/4"

190cm today is more than likely
Canson said on 29/Jun/17
Lou wasn't even close to Ralph Moeller in height. Maybe we could argue 192 but I think out of bed 193"ish" and 191 at his lowest peak.
movieguy said on 29/Jun/17
I'm no expert but I suppose a guy who does an extreme activity like body building may genuinely lose height due to wear and tear. I think people who look at him now and say 6'2'' aren't seeing the younger and probably taller Lou. He may well have been close to 6'5'' in his youth.

looks 6'2.25" in the pictures above next to the 5'8" guy. Probably 6'3" flat back in the day.
hunbert5'11tall said on 22/Jun/17
he was a strong 6'3 today is 6'2.5 no more. Arnold in his peak days hit 6 foot and quarter inch nothin over. 6'1 mornin if that! This is the truth. 2 inches on both is on movies get it guys?
BarryFl said on 22/Jun/17
Anyone doubting Lou's height should look at him onstage next to Dorian Yates at the Mr Olympia in... I think... it was 1992. Nobody has ever called Dorian Yates's height into question - the man was a solid 5'10. Lou's height is apparent next to him, and he was well into his 40s at this point.

No way he is 6' 4" more like 6 2.25 max.

Cannot believe Rob has the 6'4" listing--what a joke.

AlexItaly said on 26/May/17
He was a giant when young, taller than 6'2 Arnold and towering over every other body builder of that era. I think he was a solid 6'4 at 194. Nowdays he is around 190.

i thinsk 192 peak and 189 today. rapl moeller was 2 inches taller. and ali baba make him look 188-89.and arnold wqas probably never over 186. heheh it feels like i have said this 100 times :P and i will say it 100 times more
Kerry said on 27/Apr/17
I met him at Dragon Con and he seemed much smaller. I only realize now that he was probably hunching over to seem smaller so the children would not be scared. He appeared about 5'8, but based on these reports I think he was trying to seem small. He is an amazing role-model, so kind and open, and it is heartwarming to see him interact with children. I am so glad the new films brought back interest in The Hulk, because it brings​ him attention and opportunity.
Canson said on 26/Apr/17
6'3" peak 6'2 today

@joe: Ali said he's 6'5.5 at his absolute low. 6'5 3/4 or 7/8 normal low
Canson said on 15/Apr/17
Agree with you Rogan. Ali Baba also said he looked 6'2" when they met. 6'3 maybe strong prime
Rogan said on 14/Apr/17
I have met Lou. I'm 6'2 and he was the same height me. So I would only say 6'3 peak

When i think of solid 197cm alibaba i can't see lou any higher than a max 6'2.5 and that picture took quite number years ago. Lou could be just 6'2 nowadays
Ian C said on 6/Mar/17
When Ferrigno was young and first became a public figure he claimed six foot five. I saw him for the fist time on ABC's World's Strongest Man competition in (I think) 1976. Six foot five was the tale and I don't think he would have tried it if it weren't true, because one of the other competitors was a powerlifter named Bruce Wilhelm, who claimed six foot four. I can't see a six foot four man letting another man who was only six foot four claim an phantom inch, so Wilhelm would have called him on it if it had been a lie.
Canson said on 6/Mar/17
Red: agreed! Maybe 1/4" higher on the peak is a max he is but I think you have him pegged

"Bad 'proof'. Lou is quite clearly a couple of inches taller on this photograph."

No man there is 1" difference max. When I see people taller than me and they tell me their heights, it's probably less than one inch but it looks huge, that should tell you how significant is an inch really.

Ali baba is 197cm not 198cm ever since the picture with Lou Ferrigno. Lou Ferrigno look 6'2.5 with him. Not sure if Ferrigno was still 6'2.5 now or could he could be lesser
Ren said on 10/Jan/17
Rob, How many hair advantage does Lou Ferrigno got in this picture with you. Respond me please I really want to know?
Editor Rob
ferrigno has combed back/up hair, so definitely 1-1.5 inch range, more higher end in that bottom shot, and maybe nearer 1 in top.

"I laugh when I see people say 6'2" peak and laugh even harder when I see people say Arnold 5'11" peak."

you can laugh all day, but this is the truth. lou barefoot was 6'2"-6'2.5" (188-189cm). arnold barefoot was 5'11"-5'11.5"(180-182cm). Schwarzenegger towerd over competitors who most of them were 5'6"-5'8"(166-172cm).

Lou is as tall as manny perry or max half inch taller. 6'4"(193cm), is a pure fake. proof.

many of you don't have idea how tall is a legit 6'3"-6'5"(190-195cm). This is the problem. Stop with this comedy on ferrigno and schwarzenegger overstimated heights. We are tired.
jessman said on 8/Dec/16
This guy's height always fascinated me when I was a kid watching the hulk on tv. He was described as 6'5, which seemed extremely tall to me at the time but, even back then, he never gave a really tall impression on the show. Before I was into double figures I had a fascination with height. I really doubted he was his listed height back then. I just watched an episode of the hulk and there were crowd scenes in New York with Lou running through the people. Even with helpful camera angles he only looks a little taller than most of the crowd. I also saw that he is not barefoot in tbe hulk, he wears some kind of footwear and you can see the flat sneaker-type sole from behind. At a guess I would have estimated him as a weak 6'2 during the series. Rob....are you certain he was 6'3 minimum when you met. Maybe he was forcing posture in the top pic where he looks 6'2? He seems a bit lopsided which suggests he might have been tip-toeing on one foot, with the other dangling as a counter-balance. In fact he appears comparatively taller next to you in the top pic than he does in the bottom pic and the top pic is much more recent.
Jackson said on 8/Dec/16
I laugh when I see people say 6'2" peak and laugh even harder when I see people say Arnold 5'11" peak.
Watch Pumping Iron. Arnold is TALL. He absolutely towers a 5'5" listed Franco and looks a solid 1.5-2 inches taller than 6' listed Serge.
Lou was 6'4.5" and Arnold was 6'1.5" I would put money on it

rob, i just saw the pic between you and jack coleman, 6'2.5" (189cm) . Coleman looks clearly taller than ferrigno. I can't understand how you can say ferrigno is 6'3" (191cm), taller than coleman. the comparison is more than clear, ferrigno is now max 6'1"-6'1.25" (185-186cm). In fact watching the pic between you and lou with your "stadiometer" under the image the 6'3" level is on ferrigno hair up. But the top of his head is on 6'1"-6'1.5" line, nothing more. height is measured on the head line, not on the hair up line, otherwise don king (billed 6'2" (188cm) could claim 6'7" (200cm)!!!
Editor Rob
Ferrigno didn't look shorter than Jack in person, I think he still is closer to 6ft 3 than 2.
