Those aren't legit numbers. It was to demonstrate that two men weighing the same, the significantly shorter of the two should be able to lift more.
- he squats 465 and I squat 365

He is no doubt stronger and I'm not trying to claim my lifts are harder because I'm taller. Just trying to satiate the curiosity after a discussion we had over the weekend.

LOL Fuji... I'm not one to discount anything (at least not quickly), but I can't wrap my head around that.

I haven't seen a tool to normalize weight by height, only weight (Wilks, etc). I have never seen it suggested that height is beneficial, longer levers and what not. Even if you do find a tool to normalize by height given assumptions about levers, any random individual would still deviate from those assumptions. One of you could always complain about a longer femur, less thoracic mobility, lower test, endo/ecto, and so on.

A rough guide I have read is 5lbs / inch - so you are "underweight" in the comparison by 30 lbs AND mechanically disadvantaged.

Have my annual PT test next week, hoping to get 75 pushups in a minute, 70 crunches in a minute, and 9:45 run time for a 1.5 mile.

Stopped by Dan Green's gym on the way home from work tonight. The place is actually pretty nice... like half PL gym/half crossfit box. It's actually quite reasonably priced and apparently Dan's usually there most weeknights helping out members and giving pointers (considering joining because of this alone). There were only a few people lifting, but I recognized most of them from local meets.

Yeah, wtf. You should def switch right away.

Just lifting with guys way stronger than you and getting some pointers will help you a lot for sure.

Get a fucking membership bacon! The only thing stopping me form going on a rant on why you should join is your name is bacon.



post #36975 of 57313
Uhmm... WTF... I'm in San Jose which means I'm stupid close to Dan Green's gym. How did I not know this?

How much was the membership btw?
