Standards like that don’t take into account body shape, bone structure, levers and so on. Short limbed big boned people generally do better in most strength movements than long boned slim people, before any kind of muscle development comes into play.
Many know of a barrel chested untrained man that can lift bigger than hard training folks just by virtue of their heavy bones, excellent connective tissue and natural ‘default’ muscle size.
The OP is quite tall and sounds slim, likely to be young and probably should have deadlifts, done carefully, in the exercise mix.
The chart at exrx is interesting though, i bookmarked it - thanks rsg.[/quote]
I gotta say man… I don’t really “buy” into the whole short limbed Vs long limbed. Not that it doesn’t have merit, its just that it can easily be used as an Excuse to NOT lift heavy.
