    us tall guys have alot more ways to travel than shorter people...plus, I dont care who says it, but doing squats is alot different form for taller guys. I'm 6'7" and unless I do really wide stance squats, it is almost impossible for me to get correct form...

  14. lol.. there are some of us shorter guys that have to do the wide stance also..

  15. man ill tell you.... it is a lot different when you have a long way to go.... on most of my other leg exercises i do go heavy... like leg presses i am at 700-800 lbs.... the squat is a hard one cause i am trying to keep my form correct.. as opposed to putting on a ton of weight and sacrificing it... it is way hard for tall cats to keep our form... I AM NOT TRYING TO BLOW OUT MY BACK!! having said that even on my bench press that is still a long way to go down and up... but.. i am not one too complain i just keep pumping... still not too many dudes in my gym putting up that kind of weight... too put it all in perspective.. shrink my mass onto a 5 ft 9 frame.... that would be ugly... but i am 6ft8 so i gotta keep working.. thanks for the words though... and the wheels are coming along....

  16. When it comes to bodybuilding... being tall is definitely no advantage.

    Actually. It ****ing sucks!

    lol

  17. You reach your goals and you are pro wrestler material.

  18. hey that would be an option.. id fued with jon cena ... lol

  19. FEE... FIE... FO... FUM...

    Damm you're a big one... Welcome!!

  20. Yeah, Im 6'1''. Not that tall, but squats are def my weak point, since i have longer legs. But i could care less, i wouldnt trade my height for anything.

  21. Oddly enough, I find squating much easier than benching. Always have.

    Granted, once you get past a certain weight it all becomes difficult but by in large... squats are easier for me.

    Nahh I dont' see anything wrong with it. Some people are just better at benching than squatting. Even some powerlifters bench is close to or the same as their squat.

  26. Dead is probably the hardest exercise for me (6'3"), I have really long thighs so it is hard to keep the back straight in the lower part of the movement.

    And good job for concentrating on form

    hey bro- do youdo dips or deadlifts???

    I am tall as well, 6'4, and I love dips and deadlifts- us taller guys can do better on those than the squat and bench, at least I can.

  28. 6'2, my squat is far better than my bench or deadlift.

    That is going in my quote file!

    You, my friend, are my hero.

    I see the problem....james007 is being a smartass...AGAIN

    Anyway, I'd like to ask if he does/has worked out squats as hard as bench b/c at 6'8" i'm sure's tough (IF he's all legs). However, there are some pretty damn big/tall PLers with huge squats....

  31. im 6ft3 my dead is stronger than my bench or squat(parrell)

    in arnold book he advised front squats for taller people. there workign for me and ive boticed a great improvement in the outer sweep of my thighs since ive been doing them.

  32. With regards to the squat, think about it this way:

    a 5'10 180lb guy could have maybe a 200 bench and 250squat. However you need to add ~150lbs to the squat weight to account for the bodyweight he has to lift= 400lbs.

    With the 6'8 300lb guy who has a 400 bench and 315squat you need to consider the extra ~250lbs he needs to lift when he squats, leaving a total mass of 565lbs.

    Add that to the fact he has a ROM about 6" longer than most guys and thats why his squat is lower.

  33. His arms are also longer, retardo boy. Get your gay ass picture off this board and stop embarassing yourself. What the **** do any of your statistics have anything to do with benching more than you squat?

    Please go crawl into a hole and don't come back.

  34. It's the appendage ratio's (in length) that make a difference. It just so happens that most tall people tend to have unproportionately long arms and legs....

    @6'1 i second that motion

  36. I'm 6'3 and I also second that motion. Anyone who tries to play the "i'm tall i can't squat" bull**** will be called out. You can squat, you just don't want to, lazy ****.

    Yeah, but he doesnt have to push an extra 200lbs bodyweight when he benches.

    And I do not appreciate the rest of your post. If you have a problem with me fine, but at least PM me and let me know why.
