comment How much muscle do I need for optimal strength to weight ratio?
If we're controlling for bodyfat and muscle strength per unit size, then the only downside to adding as much muscle as possible is the square-cube law. (And the limits of human digestive capability, I suppose.) Your assumptions turn this into a useless fantasy scenario. If we take X pounds of lifter with powerlifter-efficiency muscle, and adding muscle doesn't require adding fat or lowering neuromuscular efficiency, then that lifter wants to add infinity muscle. You're holding the relevant variables constant.

comment I'm trying to build mass, and I had a great upper body workout yesterday, but I only got about an hour and a half of sleep last night
@Herokiller In my own training I've found a direct relationship between sleep quality and recovery. Naps can help but they aren't the same as the real thing.

@drake035 1) "and disuse" 2) do you think people don't age between 19 and 64? Or that such aging doesn't affect their ability to accomplish tasks? Or that if they are entirely sedentary during that time that they won't experience any decrease in muscular function?

...and many if not most people need to modify their daily activities as they progressively become less capable.

@drake035 Because your first sentence is incorrect. The body atrophies with age and disuse.

comment How long to chest press 250 if currently at 205
How long will it take to get to 295 if at 250? To 340 if at 295? To 1045 if currently at 1000?

@fleed Just about anything will do. Ross Enamait is my favorite, but there's a ton. I'd also recommend not prejudicing yourself against buying a gym membership, or a squat rack, or a kettlebell.
