Why is it that lifting is so popular with manlets?
Like 7 out of 10 people that visit my gym are significantly shorter than me , 2 are usually around my height and 1 is usually a 6'7 turbo Chad and I'm only 6'1.

Is it a coping mechanism?

How the fuck can you use your height in a social situation? Tall people don't stand up and stare at manlets until they submit to their 6'0" masters. Your height doesn't make funny jokes for you. It doesn't make friends for you.

5'7 manlet reporting.
Yes it's a coping mechanism but it's not what got me into lifting recently.
I accepted my fate years ago and focused on other stuff along the years.
What really makes me want to lift is that fact that I started feeling I'm getting older so I'm trying to switch to a healthier lifestyle, lifting being among them.
My progress is kinda shit desu and I've been having drawbacks and minor injuries that made me go back to lighter weights but such is life, I'll keep going forward and give it my best.

Blogposting is done. Have a good day fellow manlets and I also wish best of luck to the lanklet anons.

this
the male height average in for example the netherlands is about 1.81m/5'11 and according to statistics, only 77% of their population is actually native dutch. that other 23% includes manlet with asian/arabian/hispanic heritage.

correct me if I'm wrong...

someone who is only 5'10 can look more buff with less total muscle mass than me who is 6'1, just because of volume

imagine

you're ugly, have no muscles, have a below average dick, but you're over 6' tall. that is your accomplishment in life, being slightly above average height. so what if you look like a stretched out 12 year old boy? your height is over an arbitrary round number.

I mean sure, there are more people over 6ft than have a 4plate deadlift,and people see taller men every single day, and that's why you really have to drive home that your height is over that arbitrary round number which most of the world would call 182.88cm

Turned 27 last month. I have plenty of free time to go to gym but what that meant for the rest of my time was the real shock.
I suddenly had to cook more and better to actually gain some weight (currently at 65 Kg) had to better manage my time, make sure I get enough sleep, drink more water, less alcohol, almost done with smoking.
Next I'm gonna look into some skin care products, I don't have wrinkles or scene but my fave just looks weird, pale yellowish hue with the nose and cheeks slightly red/pink.

5'7 here. I started lifting when I was average height in my teenage years, before I even knew being short would be a curse. I genuinely enjoy the feeling of lifting and progress and seeing my body improve in the mirror. When I'm not thinking about height lifting satisfies my primal urges and feels fantastic.

However, the second I step outside I'm reminded I'll be stuck in this personal hell until the day I die and I try to avoid lifting when the gym is full because I know I'll see tall guys looking good and manlet mirror images of myself looking like compensating retards. Every reminder of who I am and who I'll never be is a new bout of depression.

>>47959118
I'm actually kind of grateful, this board taught me that height and looks are everything so lifting and bettering myself is basically pointless and a waste time so now I don't have to feel ashamed of being fat, lazy, and a no life. Lookism and /fit/ kind of taught me to be happy to a certain extent because I don't feel bad about myself anymore knowing that hard work and all that is a lie and a cope. I can now play vidya, fap, eat like shit, and go on the internet all day comfortably now that I know there's no hope for me in anything involving the real world, it's set in stone. So thanks /fit/!

I mean, I don't understand these threads.

I am a 5' 8'' and fact is that I will never be able to compete is some fields with taller people of same experience and commitment that are dependent on the physical abilities. That is where facts end, rest is mental issues, complexes and pure insecurities that causes us to blame each others.

In fact I am happy for tall people for they don't have to overcome same problems as me so they can more easily focus on other. If there were no tall people there would be no short, and if there were no short people there would be no tall. So instead of bitterness why not feel grateful and joy for each others?

Why is this board so obsessed with height. Seems like there's
insecurity everywhere in these threads. Manlets obsessed with
being short and overcompensating because they're angry at the
world for making them small. Lanklets trying to tell themselves
being tall is some kind of special trait that will carry them through
life and makes up for their lack of other traits. Do you people even
know how social interaction works? Have any of you been in a real
fight with someone shorter or taller than you? Do you people go
out into the real world and realize it's not all about height and
lifting and fitness? Do you know how the real world works? I'm
fully triggered. Put me in your cringe compilation. I don't give a fuck.
Nothing I've said is worse than the cringe of all the daily insecurities
experienced by you people.

So I have been lifting, I have overcome insanely low insecurity got everything on track etc etc. Hooked over 15 chicks in 3 years time.. And * boom* the manlet meme.

I'm 5" 11, live in the land of giants (holland) and recently I started to feel insecure about my height. What for? I did well before I knew this, it never bothered me and now it's eating me. I've fallen for this meme. Now I need to regain my secureness again, dispite that I hooked up with several women as big or sometimes bigger than me. I am sensitive to this meme, I found out. What for? Why can't my mind hold on to the period before I got dragged into this meme? It sucks, cause I worked so hard.

5'9/190 jacked manlet here. I didn't know about the height meme until like a year ago when I got on /fit/ for the first time; I picked up lifting my freshman year because I played sports all through highschool (went to state in swimming every year since 7th grade, lettered in basketball and wrestling), and that's what it took to be competitive. Absolutely loved it after a week of it, and now that I'm in college, I do it for fun and because I like being strong. The same basic story is true for most of my lifting friends, irrespective of height. I really think it's less cope than the internet seems to posit - most of us just like being strong or having a six pack or winning at sports. I can't speak for those outside of my social circle, and it's mostly college athletes rn, so selection bias may play a part in this conclusion, but I think tihs is largely true - aside from the 10% of people on 4chan/reddit/autoadmit, who the fuck walks around worried about their height unless they're already a massive pussy?

Not true tbch, for instance average for wh*tes in Canada is about 5'10", which is the same as the national avg which probably includes many more foreigners than any europoor country.

I used to know this turbo manlet (probably around 5'5 - 5'6) and he was big into lifting and body-building; definitely on juice

Anyway, he was a douche and automatically acted like a dick to men taller than him. Even though the men he knew were all good, friendly guys

I've always wanted to have a good body ever since I was a little kid (haha guess I still am being 5'7 ;);););), I'd lift even if I was 6'2
