    so would people with really short limbs be the best at this? midgets would have the greatest potential

    Oh yeah I'm like 6'4 too.

    Being tall is a total gyp. It's like short bastards get the same amount of muscle but they have this wee little frame to spread it over.

    the biggest frame with the least amount of "gap" would have the greatest potential

    2.5" seems like a lot, this girl's would be around 1.5-2" approx.

    wouldn't a longer length prove a shorter thus more peakish bicep, while a shorter length prove to be a longer/flat bicep?

    or am i just retarded.
