It seems that the muscle weight is unnecessary information. In order to find average you add the two weights and divide by how many weights you added, in this case 2.

So 86.5 + 82.3333333 = 168.833333 / 2 = 84.417 pounds

the question was: how much do they weigh together?

86 1/2 + 82 1/3 = 168 5/6
