    I'm 6'3'. Leverage tends to work against you the taller you are. Each rep entails a greater range of motion. I've found no inordinate difficulty in using machines, though some lat pulldowns won't give me a full stretch at the top because of my longer arm length. It's harder to to attain the appearance of bulk since muscle gains are spread out over a longer frame. But once noticeable size starts coming, the height makes you look bigger than if you were shorter, maybe because the muscles have more room to spread out, if that makes sense.

    1. I thought all along you'd be the death of me, but I met one tonight who wants what's left of me!
    2. You are so full of s***, maintenance is still unclogging the toilet.
    3. Save a horse, ride a cowboy!
    4. This mission does not exist, nor will it ever exist.
    5. I'd like to check you for ticks.

    tall

    6'3" and change

    Longer legs and arms do pose challenges. My biceps have always been my weakest part, while everywhere else I gain pretty easily. The very newest line of Nautilus machines - which just arrived at my gym this past summer - are pretty comfortable for the most part, though I only use a couple of them. They finally made the lat pull-down high enough that even I have to reach for it and can do it while keeping my back perfectly vertical. The range of motion on their new leg curl machine, however, is worse.
