All the best,
I'm 6'1" with longer legs and shorter arms...not really built for pulling (probably more with my back than hips)...judging by past experience I am apparently made for playing some hockey and beer drinking....but now have an amateur love for picking up heavy stuff in my later years. Has provided a new love of training once again after getting burned out from all the years working as a trainer in a gym.

Only wish someone told me to ditch the machines and lift stuff off the ground when I was in high school.
