    Huge disadvantage in fingal fingers and atlas stones, would definately have more disadvantages than advantages so I will say no unless they are excellent at some events and that year has very few height disadvantaged events. Having no star competitors that year would be a help.

    IMO unless the stars align nope. I dont like anyone's chances under 6 foot.

    You'd have an advantage in the squat and deadlift events (less distance for the weight to travel) but as it's been stated, I think you'd be at a distinct disadvantage for fingal fingers and atlas stones, two of the staple events.

    I know at 6'3 i will never become a major force in the powerlifting world unless i got up to 308 and probably took drugs. I want to stay at 250-255 and compete at 242, due to health reasons, and i just feel better their. At 5'7 you are not going to be able to be competitive at a few of the events, which is going to create problems. You need to be honest with yourself and others. I would think a much more attainable goal would be your lightweight pro card which is under 231.

    Depends on your height but at a guess, 6 foot 240 lbs lean as a minimum, just going from competitors weights, mariusz was like 6'1 285lbs.
