Mass > leverage? Sorry, you fail physics class.
Fortunately for the general populations I am soon to be a civil engineer, and I did not in fact fail any physics.
Its obvious that Im talking about mass as in muscle mass, as in force production by cross sectional area contraction, and even if I wasn’t your statement still makes no sense…because the situation isn’t black and white, you don’t know his arm span, how large his chest is, his shoulder width.
Either your just trying to be annoying by purposefully misinterpreting my obvious statements, or your stupid, either way.
F minus, see me after class.
I’m purposely trying to be annoying? Aren’t you the one claiming to be stronger in your upper body than Olympic gymnasts? That average, untrained people are stronger than gymnasts?
Mass obviously helps to increase force production, and I also agree that anyone strong, but all else being equal, a 6’5" lifter won’t be as strong as a 5’7" liftecan getr. I’m not trying to discourage anybody, but there’s a reason certain body types are favored in certain sports.
Anyway, to the OP, yes you can get strong if you’re an ectomorph. Kelly Bagget actually wrote an article you might be interested in.
