Would you trade your height?

Just wondering if any of you tall guys would trade your height to be able to bench and squat or whatever more. Shorter people definitely have an advantage when it comes to lifting. Would you sacrifice your god given gift to pump out a few more lbs?

Also, would you shorter people be willing to give up your higher bench press, and other lifts for a couple of inches of vertical awesomeness?

I'm 6/4 and I still move plenty of weight.

Nope, I wouldn't trade, as I love being tall.

Nope. I'm okay with 5'10, and a 400lb+ bench. I prefer petite girls anyway.

Not a chance. Being tall is more useful than benching 400 vs 200.

I talked to tenacious j and he says there are many advantages to being short. Just think you can ride the kiddie rides at six flags. I say go for it.

Although I haven't maxed in a while, I'm not THAT weak.

I work out on bench with 90lbs dumbbells, squats at 355lbs. Don't do deadlift so I don't know about that. I rep 165lbs on hangcleans. Not great, but not horrible. Being 6' 1" and above average strength works for me.

I think 5'11 is a good height so im happy with that.

If wanted to be a pro bodybuilder then 5'9" would be a lot better but i'll never take the drugs or diet needed for that. haha

5'11'' is good for me. It always looks cool when you can dunk and you are under 6' tall.

Well, it see. I'm 6'1 and can lift 395 for 7 rep's on bench and can squat over 650 at 32 years old. When I was in college I could squat over 750 and bench about 450. Right now I weight about 245.

Not a chance in hell.....

I'm 6'1", not super tall but it's perfect. I'm at 185lbs and would never in my life trade it for being shorter and stronger. I'm 27 and like to stay in shape and bulk up, but I don't really care about being the biggest or strongest. I do what I can and push myself. I wantt o get stronger, but I don't strive to get huge. My body frame won't allow it.

If I can't outlift a 5'8" ripped dude at least I know that most ladies would rather be riding my cock than to be with his short ass, lol.

Almost every girl I've ever met said she'd rather date a taller guy that;s in shape than a short huge dude. Somethig aboust short man complex or something..... I'm 6'1" and in decent shape, I just exude confidence I guess, lmao.

You're pretty wrong here. It depends on the girl. At 5'10 I'm not tall...but I've dated all heights of girls. I prefer 5'2 to 5'6 but haven't had a problem with girls 5'8 and taller. The girl I'm dating now won't date taller guys actually...

It's all a matter of preference

Wouldn't trade to be any shorter or taller for anything. I'm pretty A-Ok with my height. I'm definitely weak though.

I'd give up a couple of inches of the awesomeness in my pants to gain some height. Then I could be normally proportioned like the rest of you guys.
