being 6ft 6 i can understand the pain of being a tall bodybuilder
especially at 19, i was a scrawny kid at 93 kg 14′ arms and 23′ legs and
now after 18 months of natural training im up to 111kg 18′ arms and 28.5′
legs and lean too.
tall guys out there just stay focused and all push yourself, dont be afraid
to fail. :)

Tall 6’2 – 6’4 body builders look amazing, small long core, wide shoulders
and big legs look much better than short body builders. Tall body builders
rule imho

I got it!! Bodybuilders work out like crazy to compete against other men in
order to be the most prominent male and “win” the flaccid, weak, useless,
dependant, demanding, genderly inferior creature a.k.a woman XD with whom
they fail to connect with because she’s a totally different gender, a
totally different mind so they fake it, all this to then go back to their
male friends with whom they can truly connect as they are the same thing;
men hahaha!! Heterosexuality is a joke!! LOL

Being 7’2″ and stuck at 96 kg, yep I’m a tall scrawny bastard I know, but I
cannot gain mass at all no matter the tricks. I eat 8,000 calories a day to
maintain body weight, At most I gain up to about 102 kg, but that’s it. I
lose the weight again within a week. but I’m healthy, so yes I would love
to gain mass, but again I just can’t. Any real tips?

Justin Osborne says:

I am tall, so it has always been hard to add visible muscle mass to my
frame. It takes 1.5 times more muscle to add visibility to my long arms
compared to the average guy.

put mass on.

Rob Lewis says:

I did bodybuilding years ago, I’m 6’5 and got up to 122kgs natural.
Struggled on squats as it hurt my lower spine so I spent sometimes 2
sessions a week on legs, leg press working up to 800kg with extensions and
ham curls always adding free weigh to the stack. Calf raises with my mates
hanging off the machine stack for added weight, ahh them was the days.
I cycled to work daily which I think made my legs bigger as I had more fast
twitch muscle. They literally were swollen every time I got to the gym.
Chest, Bench press, hated it, but excelled on Dumbell presses working up to
70kg each side dumbells. This made my Tris very large with the dips. So yes
lots of bicep curls, and close grip pulldowns with a wrist curl at the
Added in some inclined, Close grips burns and very heavy dips, adding up to
100kg around the waist.
Heavy Shoulder Press Dumbells, Very Heavy Shrugs and pulldowns stack plus
weighs added for back. Same with Back Pulls. Heavy Deadlifts.
Funny enough the thing that added loads of arm size was rowing on
outriggers and dragon boats, very weird. But I think these things with
doing heavy weights helped because I had more fast twitch fibres and was
naturally prone to skinnyness.

Eat loads of meat and veges, and drink loads of low fat protein. Thats it.
Seemed to work, BUT it did take time. Always look forward to increasing
weight a bit each week. If I didn’t feel that was possible, I stayed home
and rested.

I do much martial arts now, and have lost a lot of that weight, as I got
uncomfortably big, the missus called me the michelin man due to the arms,
but what I lack now in bulk, I have loads of striking speed, punch and
kicking. and quite fit and muscular lean I’m now 47.

You should not be able to do more, or want to do more legs as this will
blow your weekend out. Keep arse on the seat when on leg press or youll get
a big arse.

Throw in abs every other day.

Hope this helps someone.

Thanks for the information, but still. No pain, no gain. That’s what I have
always believed.

SaltySangster says:

6 foot 3 here, I was 170 pounds now im 218 pounds, I train legs 2 – 3 times
a week because they are so long and train arms along with every other body
part each non leg day. I’m 6 foot 3 with a 6 foot 7 wingspan, and 38 length
legs. If Arnold could do it so can we!

GenoKatz4 says:

What are your macros? I am also 6’4″ and am struggling to gain lean mass.
I’ve been at this for over a year. My chest is my weakest part. IT JUST
WONT GROW! So frustrating!

heyitsablackguy says:

Takes time man, takes a lot of time. All I know is that cutitng down sucks
for taller dudes.

ComputerTrainer101 says:

Benching is a bitch for tall people. I can’t gain shit muscle wise no
matter how hard I work. I’m doing kick boxing now and I hit harder by far
than the smaller guys but I still have chicken arms. I’m 6’4″ I’m in good
shape though. Genetics are a bitch in terms of weight lifting if you are
