I noticed the same thing. I'm 6'5 and at 260 now. I have to put on double the muscle weight as the 5'5 to 5'9 guys do just to show any gains.

I hear ya bro but that's when you need to stand up behind these short competitors and do a front double bicep pose....this when the judges will realize you're overlapping them with your large frame plus will make you appear even bigger

Melvin Anthony 5'8 240
Gustavo Badell 5'8 245
Jay Cutler 5'9 267
Moe Moussawl 5'9 235
Kevin English 5'5 202
Toney Freeman 6'2 286
Phil Heath 5'9 230
David Henry 5'5 207
Dexter Jackson 5'7 230
Johnny Jackson 5'8 240
Craig Richardson 5'7 215
Ronnie Rockel 5'6 225
Silvio Samuel 5'7 220
Sergey Shelestov 5'11 270
Branch Warren 5'7 245
Dennis Wolf 5'11 267

See all the six foot plus guys in there? Oh yeah exactly one. See a lineup of guys mostly 5'5-5'10? Yup.

I'd also add that other than Wolf none of these guys are there actual listed height...I'm 5'10" and I look down on most of them...Most these guys I have met, spoke to, stood next to for extend time, and most are at least 2 inches shorter than you have them listed if not 4 inches...Cutler is barely pushing 5'06"...

When you are that high it is too difficult to put on muscular. It just ain't simple. When you have lengthy divisions they never look as complete as someone with smaller divisions.
