Man I gotta post here too on this thread since I’m like 5’5" on a good day (ok I’m still in denial).
I agree with the calorie intake and the proportions but lets not forget this, most people in the gym are interested in the numbers that you lift say you weigh 220lbs and are 6’ and can deadlift 500lbs and I weigh 150lbs and can deadlift 370lbs then everyone comes round the big guy and says WELL DONE MAN thats 500lbs!! But they dont realise that pound for pound I was lifting more!
Ok so I got a chip on my shoulder…lol But this actually makes me train harder in the gym, if I aint gettin any taller I may as well get a little wider.
Also I might be being a little harsh here but I think the whole limb length thing making it difficult to lift is somewhat BS and the reason being that everyone is used to carrying their own body and weight, your muscles are larger if you are taller and as a whole everything should be held in place properly no matter what size you are.
I think the perfect height to be is about 5’10 but then again who wants to be AVERAGE!!!
I know not me… .
