Arnold Schwarzenegger — when we talk bodybuilding, he’s the man.
Where do we start when we look at what made him so dominant? I look at his height. He’s the only Mr. O standing at over six feet tall. That’s taller than Lee Haney who just scratched that mark at five feet, eleven inches tall. Bodybuilding is generally seen as a sport meant for short people. Muscle movements are easier and quicker on a smaller frame, generally this allows shorter individuals to lift heavier with a lower risk for injury. Success begets success — once shorter people fill out, they train harder — getting quicker and better results.
That leaves us tall guys pretty envious, we want to pack on that elusive muscle. But I’ll be straight up, there are some moves us tall guys do better. Here are some tips for how you can be more effective in the gym.
