I have heard time and time again that T levels are indicative of strength since muscle size is often associated with absolute strength in all respects. Since we know that strength and size are not 1:1, but are relative to each other, does testosterone influence really indicative strength implementations alone?
What I am saying is, if one can be stronger(but smaller in muscle size), is it correct to assume one can be stronger but have LESS testostetone than another?
I know it is responsible for muscle size, but we already covered that muscle size is not always the best, fullest measure of total strength. Strength is also neuro-connected, which doesn't rely 100% on test levels alone.
I ask this because I cry watching things that emotionally touch me, and I know other males, like me, who do not. I am also flabby, out of shape, and have more relative body fat than muscle mass. However, I have easily overpowered men with larger muscles than me and even in better shape, more "macho", refined in workouts, toned, etc.
I assume that I would have to have less test than these bigger guys with chiseled jaws, toned arms, low BF, less emotional. But why am I stronger?
To sum it up, is testosterone alone 100% correlated with strength? If so, why am I stronger with less?
