I have to agree. And - without wishing to ruffle anyone's feathers on MAB - being 'strong for your size' is a kind of consolation prize compared to just 'being strong'.

I think a lot of people admire the 150 lb guy deadlifting 500, but given the choice,they'd rather be the guy deadlifting 800, even if that's not so good for his size.

Maybe it's like the difference between 'looking good for your age' and just 'looking good.'

Edit to say: just read BTB's post properly, and realised I've said almost exactly the same thing
