I m pretty strong for a BB...but im on the lower end of the scale of powerlifting from the stats I have read. Anyay does it take a different type of person or dedication to be one..or can you cross over realitivly easy???? i have been told I was too tall ..6'2 to be one but I think I can get around that....I would like to try it someday.

What are your lifts currently at, and what's your body weight at?

You are far from too tall. Some of the best WSM competitors are well over 6'. Some of the best powerliftersare also well over 6'. The Kaz is your height, or an inch or so taller.

What do you mean by "what does it take"? I don't quite follow. It takes lifting heavy weights, and having the genetic predisposition to do so. That is all.

You can convert. You just have to change your mindset, and your training accordingly.
