Why does it seem that a lot of heavy and big people are weak, objectively weak?
I met a few muscular guys, quite bigger than me who were weaker than me.
I don't think it's a bout specificity of training because they were weaker than me in a lot of movements, not just one and we all train pretty much the same way in the same gym.
I also see a lot of skinny people on YouTube who are quite strong, not just strong relative to their size but actually strong.
I'm not a small or skinny person by any means, I'm quite muscular but not to the level of Mr. Olympia, yet there are guys more muscular who are weaker and skinnier guys who can outlift me.
I doubt it's steroids because most of the big guys I'm talking about I know personally and we don't shame and don't care, and one of them admitted to have used steroids in the past but can't afford them anymore.
So what's normal? Is being big and not that strong a common thing?
