This is an idea I've been kicking around for about a while now and never got around to it for whatever reason, but here's the deal:
I'm a little over 6'4" barefooted, but I only weigh about 190 pounds usually and compete at 185. I'm pretty comfortable there, but I don't really even lift weights that seriously or anything. Obviously, I get outmuscled quite a bit on the mat, but not so much that it can't be overcome with a little more technique.
But, being as long and thin as I am, do you think I could be stronger compared to other folks at 205 than I would be at 185? Obviously they will be stronger, but will the extra mass on my spindly little frame more than make up for the difference if I were to start lifting harder? If nothing else I'm at least going to start carrying more weight between fights, maybe 195-200 or so.
