I don't know where this question should be posted, but i figured bodybuilding.
Mods please move if I'm wrong.
My boss and I were discussing people with more fat and muscle that are able to lift more weight than leaner people with the same amount of muscle. I told him that the heavier you are the more weight you can lift. He said I was dumb because fat shouldn't influence strength, and asked me to scientifically back up my claim that the heavier you are the more weight you can lift.
So I figured I would ask y'all if there are any articles on this? Or am I a dumbass and completely wrong? Honestly I don't care if i'm wrong I just would like some clarification. It just seems to me that two people with even amounts of lean body mass but one with more fat usually is able to lift heavier.
just tell me to stfu if this is a retarded question.
