Filling out the body with muscle

It is "generally" easier for a shorter guy to fill out the muscle bellies than a tall lanky guy. Want some extreme examples? Here is the 2008 Olympia line-up. These stats are pre-Olympia and do not necessarily compare to where everyone came in.

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.

The best bodybuilders are all over six feet. Arnold and Ronnie Coleman are both over 6'2".
Additionally the guys in the worlds strongest man are all filled out and huge. They are all over six feet tall.
An individual with larger limbs can and will add more muscle to their frame. Additionally, they can and will look larger when filled out.

When you are that tall it is too hard to put on muscle. It just ain't easy. When you have long limbs they never look as full as someone with shorter limbs.

That's a fact, but a good big guy will always beat a good wee guy, so if you're tall and wish to compete it's worth sticking at it.

I'm 6' and have competed sevral times and always felt self concious standing next to chunkys guy 5" shorter than me. In some poses however, I would blow these guys away.

I'm 6'2" and around 270.....I filled out pretty well. The only muscle groups that I feel may suffer from my height are biceps and maybe pecs because my abdominal cavity is so much longer......

That's not a cut 270....or even close to it.......dont' judge me...lol

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.
