    I've never heard of this workout but I'd be real interested in finding out some info about it. I'm 6'3" and I've just been going off Brad Fullmer (of the Angels) workout but I've never heard of anything specifically designed for taller people.

    Check it out at www.bigguysgym.com. I just started the program this week and its pretty tough. Its a fairly high volume routine based on compound, heavy lifts and a 3 days on 1 day off cycling system where the weight goes up and the reps go down. I don't really know how much science is behind the routine and the booklet never really states why this routine works for tall people. The programs was only $12.95 so its cheap compared to some of the stuff I bought before. What is Fullmer's routine like?

    there is NO such thing as a routine for tall people

    if you honestly believe that, then you must have a rocky foundation in this sport or are a beginner

    hey, both are fine, i've been there and done that myself.

    i highly suggest then you check out this compendium i've written. it's basically designed for the above groups. it covers everything you'd ever need to know about bodybuilding so you don't fall for some "tall person" routine progrma. plus, if they're charging #12.95 for it, that's a rip. stay away from it, but give mine a quick overview. if nothign else, there's some past articles on my site that may very well help your training

    i'm 6'3'', and i thought i needed something like this because i'm taller than most of the weightlifters you see in all the mags. but you really don't need a special workout program, or do special exercises. just focus on the basics, bench press, squats, deadlifts, shoulder presses........
    bodybuilding/weightlifting doesn't just work for people under 5'8''

    i just ment just because someone's over six foot, doesn't mean they can't get big like lee priest, or ronnie coleman unless they find some workout program that says for tall people. i just ment a good workout program will work for someone 5'5'', or 6'3''

    He did NOT say:

    A little touchy, are we?

    oh, hehehe *blushes in shame*. it was late, i mis-read

    but still, even the other way around it's 100% untrue. hell, look at triple H or kane. they're > 6'5 and it sure as all hell works for them. for look at big red on this site. he's tall and built pretty nicely.

    saying it doesn't work for all people is jus tlike saying i can't bulk/cut because of my metabolism- it's just an excuse

    Why would lifting for tall people be any different than for midgets, other than restrictions created by machines equipment etc? If you're using dumbbells, adjust the weight accordingly and use the same movement as a shorter person. Your range of motion will be longer, but it will still be the same form.

    I am 6'5, and im pretty sure it is harder for me to get a full defined musculature than a guy who's 5'8. Taller people have longer muscles, they generally have wider grips, and have a much harder time with compound exercises such as bench press because of the longer range of motion. The good thing about being taller is that you have plenty of room to grow. You definitely need to work harder to get that great size, which does not take as long for a shorter guy, but once you get to that point you will definitely have a lot more of that "stand out in the crowd" look than all the short stocky guys out there. I would be very interested in seeing if there were any exercises that would accommodate these differences that taller guys face on their way to getting HUGE!
