I've been lifting for some months now, I'm seeing results and I'm pretty happy about them. But my dream body is something like pic related (maybe a bit leaner), yet all the guys I know with that kind of body are less than 6 foot tall, and I hear all the time that tall guys don't get as much gains and never get to look that beefy.

Is it true? I'm 6'2" so not 'that' tall but still taller than the majority of guys I know. I also have a naturally narrow frame.

Secretly trying to make manlets feel like chit?

that guy's been lifting for some years now, just keep doing what you're doing if you're happy
>>
>>35492787
uh, no. I'm actually admitting my lanklet status and my attempts to get out of it.
>>
>>35492787
hi misc

Tall guys can get the gains but it takes longer than it does for shorter dudes. You've gotta put on a lot more pounds of muscle on a bigger frame than a smaller frame needs to look equally ripped or especially beefy.

Keep at it man. Make sure you're eating enough or you'll never leave humanity behind.

6' fucking 2" is no fucking place to be talking about Tall problems. I'm 6'9" You're just another napoleon-complex vermin in my fucking way.

plus taller guys have a much higher tdee
meaning you have to eat more to get ripped.
making gains is sufficiently harder as a lanklet.

If I kick you will your bones snap? Also have fun not living past 60

You're clearly not a perfect person however considering the insecurity you have.

Op I'm 6'2" but a mesomorph. 230 ~15% bf

Lift for power. Mass comes with power. Eat a decent amount frequently. What's your weight OP?

Come back in 4 years

Tall gains are ruff
>>
>>35494865
6'6" here. Looking good. 225 was my goal weight, but I guess 240 would be closer to what I want. It takes a lot to fill out this tall frame.
>>
6'2 currently 79kg. I cant get past 80kg its always up and down around 78kg. Id be happy on 90kg or at least 85kg for the moment. Although i am going gym and noticing results, all my weight seems to go straight to my gut and boobs which is weird.
>>
6'5" currently just under 80kg, dyel obviously

Swear up Im gonna be bulking up to 100kg

Being tall sucks when it comes to gains
>>
>>35493790
Could this be achieved natty at 5'9?
>>
>>35495452
I'm 6'2" myself, currently @ 89kg, my limit was 95kg I couldn't pass (was eating WAY too much) dropped a bit as I looked skinny fat, now i just look skinny

>>35494865
sticky calculator gives TDEE for you around 3k calories, I eat that much to maintain my sub 190lbs, 6'3"
>>
>>35494877
That is incredible. After 9 months of SS lifting, my squat went from 110 to 160lbs. Lanklet i still am
>>

jelly as fuck
I'm 6'2 and can't hit 3plate
I'm terribly unsymetric cause of previous injuries
Don't ever dislocate your shoulders brehs.
>>
>>35497237
Seriously man? I'm a skelly and I went from 80lb squat to 180lb squat within two months with stronglifts. Are you using correct form?
>>
>be 6'6
>22 yo
>girls comment how I have a juicy ass all the time and squeeze it when we fug

That is only when they get to know me good enough to not notice my narrow shoulders anymore though.

Will standing press and boxing fix my shoulders or am I cucked for life by my shoulders?

Don't worry bruh, lift for fitness and fun and you'll fix everything

6'2", 213 pounds here.

Been lifting for about 14 months, started at 170. Initial gains brought me to 195, where I maintained for a while. Recent bulked up to 215 and started cutting. You'll make it breh, just give it time.

1rms are
Squat - 410
Bench - 245 (poverty bench)
Deadlift - 510
OHP - 175
>>
Pic related is me, about 2 years of progress in pics. Biggest thing I've learned is that it takes me time to fill out my frame. I'm OK with this because I absolutely love the gym. I have a different goal body in mind but my advice is to eat more and lift harder. Let me know if any questions.

> 6'7"
> 165 lbs to 230 lbs yesterday

>>35497871
Lift your upper back like crazy, it helped me get more of a v taper.

It's closer to around 4k since I work on my feet 10 hours daily and walk everywhere plus lifting twice daily.

PSMF atm around 2000 kcal works wonders for dropping weight though.

Fucking obviously, kill yourself

I'm 6'2 and was never able to go above 70kg.
Maybe i should go vegan like everyone else now a days.
>>
>>35499167
Had a torn meniscus in my left knee at 17, had to miss a couple seasons of sports.

Back is occasionally sore, I see a chiropractor and it goes away. Since I began lifting back problems have gone way down.

Shoulders are what kills, torn rotator cuff in both but surgery isnt worth it.

Naw mate it's all the more impressive if you get just to non lanklet mode as a tall guy.

Just recently i grew up to 6'1.5 but was lanklet.
Less then half a year later everyone was like "dude when will you stop growing? Jokes on them i stopped growing long ago but i just escaped skeletismn.
