I have short arms, a longish torso and short legs, which basically means-
*The journey to the hole and back up during squats is a quick one, to say the least.
*My deadlift goes up as long as I train box squats and good mornings every once in a great while.
*As long as I get in a decent amount of volume for my bench, it also goes up consistently. No fancy shit necessary. I also don't do as much as I probably should in terms of tricep training, since if I can get it off my chest, it's going up. I mean to rectify that.
That being said, it is by no means easy for short guys (not so short; I'm 5'9). I know plenty of 6'1-6'3 guys that smoke me in the gym. Leverages don't mean shit if you're stronger than the other guy, imo.
