Question by  DMcBride (18)

Are people stronger that are big or lean?

My friend says lean people have more strength.


Answer by  jamieellison (1637)

Strength depends on muscle mass, not weight. Muscle is heavier than fat. Some people are big because they have a lot of fat. Some people are big because they have a lot of muscle mass. So a big person with a lot of muscle mass may be stronger than a lean person.

People that are stronger are lean because they have a lower body mass ratio and are able to channel their strength better without excess weight.

That's not exactly true. While lean people may be looked at as healthier they may not be as strong. Also, it depends on the definition of 'lean'. Are they lean because they workout or are they lean because that's just the way they are.

lean people have more strength because they are thin so that's y they are very active. other side fat people are very lazy due to their over weight.

Of course people who are bigger and leaner can handle more weight. But, big and lean are two different things. Lean people work out to get stronger so they are ultimately going to be the strongest. Big people can handle more weight, but that's only because most people can at least carry their own weight.
