I guess this is just asking opinions really…
What are your thoughts on ratios for weight lifted compared to bodyweight?
Absolute weight matter once you’re fucking strong as shit, but for the normal people and T-Nation followers, does the ratio matter?
For example, is the 280lb powerlifter doing deads of 900lbs (random numbers) really that much more impressive than the dude weighing 165 pulling 795 lbs (Can’t remember name, but close to actual numbers of a real lifter)?
For the normal (me and coworkers) to tmuscle level dudes (I’m working my way there) what about this? (rearrange the numbers for your own example but use the same ratio)
I can bench 230 at 157lbs. My coworker is 1 inch taller, weighing 215 can bench 275. Thoughts on that?
