My kid just put up a 325lb box squat (14") at a bw of 143lbs tonight. He's all of 15. If you train for strength, you're going to obtain it.

I train in the morning with an American man (ex powerlifter), guy is 65 years old, he can still bench press 155 kilos (341lbs) for 1 strict rep, also deadlift 230 kilos (500lbs) for 1 rep, to look at him you would think how on earth could he press that much weight at his age, another guy in the gym Thai bodybuilder half his age, big guy, juiced to the gills, struggles with 100kg, strength has zero to do with muscles.

I think there's another side to this as well. The average 16" arm (when it comes to tendons, proportions etc), if it's all muscle, no fat no water at all, can surprise most with its strength because we aren't used to seeing that kind of condition.

But this doesn't apply if the guy talked about was skinny fat.

Not bad. If he had short arms, that could explain it? More leverage.

If you aren't going to take over the world in bodybuilding, you should consider lifting for strength.  

Suddenly, overnight, you'll become a sportsman.

It's a different feeling to training for sleeveless weather and the rabbit hole of strength goes very very far down for most people.

I respect bbers that are both strong and large, but the phaggotz who are as weak as hell but still believe they are alpha males.. hah, I do very much enjoy anybody who lifts for strength being a reality check for those douchebags.  You can tell these specimens because their swagger dissolves in the first three steps in a good gym and only recovers when they are far enough from it, to think that maybe, just maybe, these people in the gym don't really exist  Grin

The way I see it is most Bodybuilders wont do free weight squats and Deadlifts, this in my opinion is the meat and potatoes of strength training, that along with bench press and barbell clean and press, not trying to generalize, maybe in the states they do these compound lifts but here in Thailand they ll run a mile from a squat rack, you cant expect to get strong doing dumbell kickbacks and leg extentions, not quite the same as moving a 400-500 lbs deadlift but each to their own, if they re happy good for them, I respect the discipline involved with dieting that a bodybuilder has to go through.
