Re: Change Wall Ball Target Height per Person?

Different athletes will have advantages on different exercises -- while the taller person might have an easier time getting the ball up to the 10foot target, the shorter person has an advantage on pullups and squats where there's a shorter range of motion because of shorter limbs. Just like the heavier longer-limbed person has an advantage at rowing, but a shorter person will be at an advantage in Turkish get-up. It all balances out.
