I think the exercises that work for short people work, work for tall people, it just takes time to fill in that long lanky frame. Personally for me focusing on heavy compound movements (press's, chins, etc) work and 'isolation' work does very little.
An extension to this question I have always had is why do taller athletes (usually around 6,1-6,3) seem to be the champions of various lifts that seem to have their leverage working against them?. For example Ryan Kennelly is meant to be like 6,2 and guys like Bill Kazmier, Andy Bolton, Scott Mendelson are all tall guys. Any thoughts?
