its not just how far the weight moves but alot to do with where it moves from
for example, for a guy with long arms to touch the bar to his chest, his elbows need to be brought much further down than a guy with short arms.
a guy with (for example) 9 inch forearms could probably have their upper arms parallel whereas a guy with 15" arms would need to have his elbows effectively 6 inches lower to bring the bar down to the same place. the guy with short arms is only doing like 60% of the range of motion that a guy with 15" arms is doing.
Deadlifts are even worse on a guy with longer legs. They need to have their upper body bent much further forward (ass and hips further back or up) than a manlet does. a 5'6 guy is basically doing rack pulls compared to a 6'+ guy
and all that being said, halo is the tallest guy here. so none of us have any excuses.
Good to know! I can't touch the bar with my chest, it jus strains the hell out of my shoulders. Im assuming some of you taller guys have the same problem. Posted via RS Mobile
BEEF ... my back's more toned than thick, but i'd pick thick over toned any day. it's 'cause i used to be a skinny kid
5' 4", 120 lbs @ 16
i'm an ectomorph, and i have trouble gaining weight. i've been trying to gain weight for the past year, but no significant changes. just going from 120 to 125, and back to 120 again (maybe 'cause i stay up too late?) i don't care if it's fat or muscle, i just want to be at least 150 before summer (excluding the potbelly)
any certain diets/foods that will give me some meat? any advice would be appreciated
Fcukedd inspires me LOL
