Tall ass mofo. Not to be stereotypical, but do you ball? I'm sure your size would be to your advantage.

Thank you for realizing that. I'm 6'6'' and my bench/squat is not my strong point....i have long arms/legs....Originally Posted by mmorpheuss

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...Originally Posted by James007

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....

When it comes to bodybuilding... being tall is definitely no advantage.
Actually. It ****ing sucks!

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.

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.

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???Originally Posted by 6ft8monster
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.

I see the problem....james007 is being a smartass...AGAINOriginally Posted by James007
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....
