I’ve been giving this idea of mine some thought for a little while now, and I figured why not share it with all of you fine people. Bodybuilding is a sport better suited for short/shorter people. I’m talking about 5’9 and below. Now before anyone thinks I’m bitching, let me say THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT/EXCUSE. I like being tall (6’2). However in BB it has it’s draw backs.
For example; more food must be consumed, larger portions, more protein=more money. Furthermore, due to our greater range of motion various lifts ex. squats, curls, bench, chins are more difficult to perform. Also, assuming the trianing and nutrition are dialed in the gains don’t come out the same. Ex. a guy who is 5’8 gains 20 lbs and people flip the fuck out, a guy who is 6’2 gains the same amount and it’s just not as noticeable.
Once again this isn’t a complaint thread, just a thought. On the other hand there are numerous advantages to being tall in our society that probably outweigh these things I’ve just pointed out. For example, I wear a size 13 shoe:-)…what? did any of you really think I’d be able to post a thread and not make some refference to my dick!
