    Someone who is bigger than you but clearly weaker... or smaller than you and clearly stronger?

    Everyone's body is different in terms of how they react to different training styles and may have genetics that dispose them to strength or size but it still kinda makes me if it happens :hs:

    I try to ignore other people in the gym and that's how I would like them to treat me but I people watch when I rest sometimes. Today I saw a guy doing DB flat bench with significantly less weight than I was doing arnold presses with and he was struggling but he was bigger than me.

    does it bother you when you forget to use enough lube and the dildo makes your asshole bleed?

    How can you tell if someone is bigger than you, but weaker? How do you know he is weaker?

    I'll assume he is speaking in terms of being in the center. If you see someone that is more muscular but yet lifting lighter weights.

    I know my cousin doesn't train full throttle all the time and he's 220lbs and about 10% bf so therefore this question is retarded

    I said "Today I saw a guy doing DB flat bench with significantly less weight than I was doing arnold presses with and he was struggling but he was bigger than me."

    Not training full throttle is one thing, visibly struggling with light weight is a pretty good indication.

    In the past, I've done some burnout sets, which is light weight, as many reps as possible, and it looked like I was struggling (because I was)

    I don't get too bothered in the gym by what other people are doing unless it is blatantly inconsiderate to the other people around them

    yeah for all you know he just did 30 sets of other chest shit and was doing his last drop set on bench. Maybe he tore his pec a while back and is doing rehab or just getting back into things. You can never tell.

    but I hope it made you feel good

    you faggot

    I like to blast the fuck out of my tris sometimes before I do pressing movements so it works the target muscle better and sometimes I have to use less weight. With DB shoulder press, bench, etc.

    unless you were doing arnold presses with like 100lbs and he was struggling with the 80's i don't see how the phrase "struggling with significantly less weight" could apply to a much larger person than you.

    I think it's completely fine to have something you are proud of. Maybe he was looking at you and thinking, "Hey this guy is less weight than me but lifts more, too bad my wife is hotter and I get payed 20 mils a year". Everyone needs something to be proud of, otherwise life can be boring.
