Anatomical differences between long femur and shorter one

Anatomical differences between long femur and shorter one

As you can see the long femured individual has much more severe angles at the knee, hip/lower back and ankle which contributes to way more torque on those joints and a much less mechanically efficient position which will make it much easier to injure himself and also make it much harder to demonstrate strength because of poor leverage.

About Rick Lange

My goal is to give out training advice that has helped me tremendously. I am 54 yrs old and have been training almost all my life. Weight training...bodybuilding, and powerlifting have been my focus. I ventured into cycling, road and mountain biking and triathlon for a while. Lost lots of weight in order to make myself competitive. Then decided to come back to my roots....weight training. I have a very athletic background, having participated in football, baseball and track in my school days. I am very proud of my accomplishments racing motocross and jet skiis. Also ejoyed windsurfing , kayaying, water skiing and snow boarding/skiing as well. Rick Lange
