How does pulling a weight a farther distance than a smaller person make it easier? Plus a longer legs-trunk length ratio will require a different style of lift than someone who is smaller.

I do agree though that I would like to see a heavy DL form (compared to 115lbs on a bar) as that is real life application for me....not doing sets of 21....I stay in the rep ranges of 3-5, so that is where I live.
