So I’ve been studying a lot of on the concept of relative strength and how it affects a person’s athletic performance and mobility speed. A lot of people and sources that I’ve read say that bodybuilders are relatively weak pound for pound.
However, it is my knowledge that Ronnie Coleman has a max squat of about 800-900 lbs. and that he weighs about 315 lbs. This means that he can squat aprrox. 2.53-2.67 his own bodyweight. Therefore, it would seem like he would actually has high relative strength.
So, I am confused and would appreciate any clarification.
