Firm Stance

just curious as to what part of your body would make you have a firm stance. had a buddy of mine who was about 5’6 or 7, 180 lbs… firm solid mother fucker. Anyway, when we would fuck around and push each other, he would barely budge. When he’d push me back, i didnt fall on my ass but i definitely swayed around. Does this come from leg strength or what?

He’s heavy + small = lower center of gravity.
This makes it harder for him to fall.
It’s more physics than anything.

yeah i thought of that as well but didnt know if strength played any part in it or not

It will play part of it.
However it’s more of a total body strength thing.
If anything i’d say posterior chain/core as he doesn’t topple.

Are you gonna train it?
