      I have long bones and the muscle attachment does not give me much leverage for strength. My strength does go up but very slowly.
      Do I need to train differently?

      Yes, just work on getting progressively stronger all the time. Keep the weight increasing , like 5 pounds a week or so. Keep trying to get more reps and when you hit a goal for reps, add more weight. Im not sure that you need to train any different than anyone else

      Yeah different body types will have different strengths and weaknesses. For me, I have a really long torso and shorter legs. A focus point for me when deadlifting and squatting is trying to keep my back flat. Not to bend over and arch my back.

      This is very true. Leverage plays a huge role in strength. Tall people usually have pretty decent pull strength too. Biceps etc.
