how do you define strength? if it's purely weight lifted i'd say the 200 pounder, if strength to weight ratio the lighter dude.

Stronger as in lifting more absolute weight... 200 pound male.
Stronger relative to bodyweight... naw I'd just say the 200 pound male is stronger.

I assume that you are asking the question because you are the 200lb guy and your 145lb mate reckons he's as strong as you.



Please, please don't tell us that you are the 145lb guy.

If you are the kind of person who would say that an ant is stronger than a Tyrannosaurus Rex, then, it would follow that in your example the 145 lb guy is stronger.

Stupid question. Never compare yourself to someone else. It's you vs. the weight and that's it.

The 180lb guy doing chinups with 100lbs.... oh wait that's me :P

On a serious note, I'd say the 200lb guy is stronger because when it comes to something like both of the two exerting opposite forces on one object the 145lb guy is going to get trounced.

Making him stronger. It's not about bodyweight/ strength, it's about who lifts the most. That's why you have weight classes, because the bigger the guy, the stronger he is.

How about a 260 pound guy that uses 80 pounds for 3 reps :). The 200 pound guy in your case.
