Argueing short arms and short legs vs long arms and long legs is fine. But fundamentally, taller people will typically lift more weight. Thats it. End of story. Its the same concept as people who squat more are faster. Inevitably, there is a point where it doesnt matter, and the difference between the higher squat and lower squat is insurmountable.

At 5'5" and 220 lbs you are a) giant fat blob or b) a giant muscle blob or c) combo of the two

Either way you are paying somebody to tie you shoes.

Anyway, Kevin Knee



Worlds strongest man competitor, is 6'1 and I cant find the video of him benching 500 lbs raw, but here he is doing 475 raw...twice.





Long arms isnt hurting him.....so why do people feel the need to make excuses? Its the same thing like those dickbags who only do half reps.....they do it so they can add more weight. Stop making excuses, man the **** up, and lift the ****ing weight. I pushed up 425 and I have long *** arms. You dont hear me whining that short kids are better suited to lift then me.

It's not nerdy to know it's Jabba and not Java. However, you do look stupid for using Java. Proud of that?

You look stupid for thinking there is a correlation between someone's IQ and their ability to spell the name of some insignificant character from a sci-fi film. Proud of that?

This is what makes sense to me, maybe not you guys:

You guys have been saying that taller people have more mass but when we're talking about 5 3' vs 6 2' both at 200 and same BF, id say the shorter dude will rape. There's this midget at my gym that lifts MASSIVE weight overall. That fact that he has to move the weight so little is definitely an advantage. I thought it was almost a rule of thumb that shorter people have an advantage at the squat and DL since they have to lower themselves less than tall people, not to mention the leverage over taller people.

just me.
