me and a guy at my kickboxing gym had a discussion wether in a street fight muscle mass would be beneficial or if a wiry guy with better relative strength would be in a advantage provided both have the same skill level.
I wanted to know your guys thoughts on the pros and cons of added strength & muscle mass in a street fight as opposed to “just” strength.
So for example two otherwise identical guys fight, both have the same strength in compound lifts, one just carries 20 pounds more muscle.
The Pros I could think of:
More weight behind punches and kicks
More pressure on the ground
Harder to get taken down
You tire out faster (but since most street fights dont even last a minute that wouldnt be too much of an issue)
What is your take on it?
