Anecdotally I have noticed the same thing on the few occasions I reached 220-230lbs bodyweight, bending over and picking up the bar was considerably more of a struggle than when I'm my usual 190-200lbs.

I don't think the ab-size is a major factor here, unfortunately Sorry bro, I don't mean anything bad with this but I think it's a bodyfat issue.
No doubt my weight could be a factor. I'm not sloppy fat, but I'm not a lean dude either. Thanks for the insight.
