          Of course tall men can lift more but it is more physically taxing on a tall mans back

            the more you weigh, the more you can pick up

            Doesn't mean that they have an easier time biomechanically

            then that’s not a disadvantage you fucking retards

              Manlets are much stronger in relation to their weight, you just don't understand all the nuances to strength and weightlifting.

              Stefi Cohen, a female powerlifter, is one of the strongest humans in the world, she only does a 202kg squat, but she only weighs 114 lbs.

                Yes being a fat fuck makes an impressive lift less impressive
                But being skinny does not make a shit lift impressive

                Yes, but the strength to weight ratio only matters in calisthenics and acrobatics, why should it matter in lifting weights? 100 kg is always 100 kg, no matter how much you weigh. This applies to function real world strength as well - a heavy box won't just magically weigh less just because you're a manlet.

                but why would “deadlifting 4 times your bodyweight” matter? Who the fuck cares? In the sport he plays what matters is lifting heavier objects than the other guys do. It’s like saying “well was Wayne Gretzky really even that good? He never fought so he was probably trash”. He’s a HOCKEY PLAYER, you can’t judge him based on his ability to THROW A PUNCH

          Being tall is superior for deadlifting high numbers
          But it is inferior for deadlifting safely
          The taller you are the more dangerous it becomes
          Do you understand now

              I’m not that anon I’m just explaining the issue with deadlifting as a tall guy. We have the mechanical advantage but it’s hard for us to get into proper form. This is why even though Eddie hall, Brian Shaw, halfthor, etc are all amazing deadlifters, their form looks janky as fuck

                This is the nature of deadlifting as a tall as fuck guy. I’m only 6’1 so it’s not to the same degree for me. But the taller you are, the better your leverages are but the harder it is to do safely. No short guy ever hurts himself deadlifting, it’s always a tall guy getting hurt from it.

                He went from basketball player to strongman in only a few years so he probably hadn't locked in his technique. Ego lifting is a quick way to get hurt.

        Wrong. As people get taller their limbs get proportionally longer. Longer limbs will give better leverages for deadlift because the hips end up closer to lock out from the start. Im a manlet and i love deadlift but its def harder for us.

          You don’t know shit because as you said, you’re a manlet. So you don’t know what it’s like to be tall. We talk people, have been manlets before. We know what it’s like to be shorter. Just shut up and it will be ok

        Not with exactly the same ratios but a balanced routine should cover up any little differences. If you're not competing in anything just do what's comfortable or what you like.

    Whether you are at a disadvantage depends on your relative proportions, not your absolute height. If you're 6'4' with short legs, a short torso, and long arms, you'll be a deadlift God.

        just my particular limb ratio makes me arch my back before even lifting anything. Deadlifts are weird in that everybody starts at the same position regardless of body shape (half of 45lb plate)

      Trapbars are easier to hold because the handles are neutral and fixed unlike a rotating barbell so your grip on a trapbar should be similiar to mixed on a barbell.

      just my particular limb ratio makes me arch my back before even lifting anything. Deadlifts are weird in that everybody starts at the same position regardless of body shape (half of 45lb plate)

      >checked and coped
      >just my particular limb ratio makes me arch my back before even lifting anything
      Even if you have shit leverages for deadlifting the reason you arch your back is because you don't know how to deadlift. Without seeing your form it's probably one or a combination of poor bracing, hips not in the right position so you use your lowerback instead of your glutes or not wedging/pulling slack correctly.

      I have a negative ape index (-2") and long legs, my "natural" deadlift setup has my torso horizontal to the ground, I feel like going to snap city everytime, which basically stops me from pushing the lift hard
