Relative strength is interesting, and I respect it, but I prefer absolute. I've been at both ends of the spectrum and they both present their own sets of challenges. Relative was much easier in my youth, but I've always chased PRs and cared little about the weight at which they occurred. I just want to be the strongest I can be.

I love watching people succeed at strength no matter what their weight. With that said, I do not like to see the accomplishments of heavier lifters diminished because of some random Wilks formula. Strong is strong, at any weight.

I'm not here to position myself as better than anyone but myself. I only want to better myself. I respect all goals. If someone wants to stay lean and set records, I hope they do.
