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.
He's right.

It is bone density not size. I have been lol'ing at the ignorance in this thread.

So, you too believe bone density can help in lifting heavier weights?

You are stacked mate!
Well kinda, that pic was taken well over a year ago so i should hope im bigger then that. Don't really care anymore tbh made the switch to powerlifting. Only about 88-90kg now, have been as heavy as 94kg but i've lost a bit off my stomach since coming home which is nice. Maintaining 90kg for now.

lol, I'm 80kg. I only ever really want to lift 100kg (bench) to be honest. You don't want to hear this, but i would ideally like the build of Pitt in Fight club (yes, i know how many people must say that). Lean and muscular is basically my aim.

Apparently Greg Glassman trains Brad Pitt now, or so I hear on the ol' grapevine.

Okay. So who else is near to the 75/80kg bench mark and, what are your aims?

Yes, which has nothing to do with bone size.

But Lara stated that mass due to bones would not help in weight lifting at all. Apparently, only muscles can ever help in lifting weights...which i don't believe.

would prob help you aquire more mass more quickly as your frame could handle, it prob wouldnt help the movemnt itself

what im saying is this;

take a man, M, give him a bone structure of X then see how much he lifts.

then take the same man and give him a lighter bone structure of Y.

M + X will not be able to lift more than M + Y. it just doesnt make sense. if anything the extra weight will reduce his lift.

Is it just me or is Brad Pitt's body in fight club just a skinny one? He is lean, yes, but not much muscle there!

M + X would have a bigger potential for mass than M + Y, and could probably build mass and get stronger quicker. M + Y would have more difficulty maintaining mass or getting as big as M + X.

No, I disagree with this. The bone density itself doesn't have an impact on how much you lift. It might limit M + Y in their ability to lift their maximum right off the bat, because their bones aren't as strong. But after training, their bones will grow stronger and be able to effectively handle the weight the same way M + X would.

And yes, Brad Pitt looks really skinny there.

You're saying bone density doesn't make a difference and then in the next sentence you are saying that the guy with low bone density won't be able to lift as much until his bones get denser. As you might imagine, this does not make sense to those of us who are not in your brain. You will have to choose one.

Personally I think dense bones are less likely to break and possibly slightly better at transmitting force. However, the hypothetical is silly because the only way to get the same amount of muscle mass as the other guy is to train with weights, and if you do that your bones will adapt and become dense. The entire discussion is a little bit silly actually.

It will make sense to those who know how to read. I said once M + Y has undergone physical training their bones will grow in strength to accommodate such lifting.

You seem to have something against me burningun (this and other posts of yours I've seen related to me). You should really grow up.
