Sorry I worded it like that. I just get sick of hereing (not here) about new P/Lers talking about getting fatter just to shorten there ROM so they can lift more. Then they turn around and get all bent out of shape because people call them fat. Fat describes your body structure it has nothing to do with how strong you are. Sumo wrestlers are very strong but no one, not even themselves will deny they are also fat, but they are fat for a reason. There sport.
You make some good points about on this
