Short arms can be a drawback.

Short arms can be a drawback.

Here is the first version of the deadlifting T-Rex. The whole idea was the result of a conversation with someone I train with. It was regarding the length of his arms. Now shorter arms can be an advantage sometimes, such as while benching.

Shorter arms means a shorter range of motion, and means the bar does not have as far to travel before locking out. Unfortunately they have the opposite effect when deadlifting.

So obviously, I had to do a characterture of him as a Dinosaur with short arms.

This also explains the beard.
