    It is easier to be wide when you are short. Every pro or NPC type competitor I have met is my height at six foot or shorter. The oddity are pros over 6'1", Arnold and Lou were not the norm.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    Alot of the 202 (well they just chaged it to 212) bodybuilders are about 5'5-5'6"... Check out Jose Raymond, Flex Lewis, Kevin English.. Older bodybuilders such as Lee Priest, Franco, Ruch Gaspari

    haha exactly what I was going to say.

    and just FYI for the OP, if you want to be more than 168lbs, then eat more and workout like a beast.

    5'2" over here and I plan on competing next year. A little extra mass on a smaller frame goes a long way.

    i'm only 5'5, not really a bodybuilder per sey, since i don't want to compete at all.....but i def get motivation from seeing some of the shorter guys get ripped up and look like little beasts....lee priest is one guy i think looks awesome...even tho as a person he's a weirdo
