my workout partner and I have this debate all the time and it came to the point where I was so annoyed that I searched google about this topic and found nothing. Thus, is the reason why im here and hopefully someone can give me a strong answer with some support about the topic I’m about to explain.
My workout partner is 6 feet and weighs about 215 lbs with around 6% bodyfat, I’m 5’8 and weigh 167 with 4.3% bodyfat. I can perform more pull-ups weighted and not weighted then my buddy, bench more then him and he argues that because I’m shorter then him I can lift more.
His argument is the fact that there is shorter range of motion for me with bench pressing that its an advantage for me, so i can lift more then him and the fact that I weigh less I can do more pull ups.
Now can someone help me with a real answer here and hopefully an answer to prove him wrong…if u can provide maybe an article form here or website to support your answer it would be great.
