In all fairness there are guys who compete in lighter weight class in powerlifting that don’t look very muscular, yet they are strong.
Heck, even EC doesn’t look like he can pull over 600, but he can.
Put a different way, EC pulls about 200# less than Coleman and EC isn’t even as big as one of RC legs.
I’m sure that has a lot to do with why some newbies don’t think that you don’t have to be strong to be big.
Then those same people need to exercise their minds. Just because it’s possible to be strong and “smallish” does not mean it’s possible to be weak and big. These are two different things.
If there is NO ONE who is big but also weak, then the conclusion to draw is that you can’t be both weak and big. How they reach a different conclusion astounds me. [/quote]
Why is this surprising? When you see a small guy pulling over 600lbs, it’s hardly a stretch of the imagination that some people will conclude that there is little relationship between size and strength.
And the reality is actually closer to the middle than some would suggest. If there were a direct relationship between strength and size EC, and guys like him, wouldn’t be that small.
Obviously there is way more to it than just “Get strong, noob!”
awaits for someone to assume that I’m suggesting training with pink DB
