6'3"/240 here, and I think we should wear it like a badge! If it was easy (big or not) everyone would do it... we get the "benefit" of saying we're doing more work in the same movements because of the increased distance

I don't mind pull ups so much but suck at power cleans, clean and jerk etc. My max DL is currently 254# (I weigh 154#) and I always feel like I have to lift it sooooo much further than everyone else.

Nice to see some tall people here. I love CF but def think it would be "easier" if I was 6" shorter!!
Even if you found it easier then you'd be mad you weren't doing it FASTER! Be proud of moving more weight a longer distance than the rest...
