    That's not true entirely. You can still have a stong bench (or any other lift for that matter), it's just a matter of putting in the time. It won't be as easy for you due to leverage....but that shouldn't stop you from lifting hard.

    PS - my wingspan is pretty wide too :wiggle:

    Hmmm... how far do your fingers reach when standing straight with the hands by your side?
    Because this could also indicate wider shoulders rather than just long monkey arms.
