not a powerlifter but interested to hear your thoughts, the height "advantages" i've heard are

short - bench
tall - deadlift
medium height and stocky - squats

myth or fact? shades of grey or Bulls**t?

More about proprortions(relative limb length) than being tall or short.

I read some supposed russian tables suggesting BW compared to heights. They looked solid enough for PL. I think in PL there tends to be more squatter builds and higher BWs. Probably more so in none tested feds.

I'm spot on, but I imagine the distribution of the weight may not be quite what they had in mind.
