how does more mass aid in the lifting process? the only thing more bone mass is going to do is put more strain on the muscles, which will mean you actually lift less.

all the power comes from the muscles. nowhere else.
And if you've been lugging around a skeleton the size of a bear for the past 25 years it's likely you're going to have some muscle on you.

Edit: Not to mention that if you have a naturally large everything else, why wouldn't you also have naturally large muscles?

if thats your argument then you can just go and shove that one pal.

saying a guy with bigger bones will be stronger because hes been lifting bigger bones about is so ****ing stupid its unbelievable.

You are now saying bigger bones means you lift less?? That's the biggest load of bull I've ever heard.

I think muscles are attached to bones, and the bigger bones are the bigger muscles can attach to them. I also think that force output of a muscle can be limited by its cross sectional area, which means that bigger muscles are more useful.
when your muscles become so big that the size of your bones attaching to them becomes a limitation then you will have to be so incredibly humongous it could never happen.

please tell me how bigger bones means you will be stronger. saying that your muscles will automatically be bigger because theyve been lifting a larger weight is rediculous. you can be 6ft4 with huge bones yet be weaker than a 5ft guy with small bones who just happens to have been lifting weights for alot longer.

Nobody said you can't. "Lifting weights for a lot longer" is quite a bias on that blindingly obvious observation there, my keen friend.

But i did not provide an example of somebody who had been lifting for longer, and you appear to have lost your train of thought: 'saying that your muscles will automatically be bigger because they've been lifting a larger weight is ridiculous'. Now you're being ridiculous and not even arguing in the correct argument

But perhaps people with larger bones - an adaption which makes it possible to add more muscle mass - are genetically predisposed to having bigger muscles. It's not too much of a stretch IMO, that endomorphs and mesomorphs tend to be stronger than ectomorphs. In fact, it's not a stretch at all because it's true.

Basically, stfu you *****es and lift some weights and eat for bigger muscles and increased bone density.

People who are 'naturally' built without ever lifting a weight are usually just fat.
