Is anyone here inherently weaker than average?

Is anyone here inherently weaker than average?

In HS when I did weight training I could barely bench the bar maybe 3 times.

After a year of HS weight training I eventually came to be able to bench 130(10 reps)

I was able to leg press 1300 pounds though.

Oh and even when I could bench 130, I couldn't do a single pull up.

What the fuck is wrong with my genes?

      Guy, I was only physically active in HS. But I was back then.

      I'm weaker now that I'm in my 30s, I'm slightly above sedentary but sometimes I can't even open a bottle. I'm gonna start lifting again soon just so I can hopefully gain the strength of an average male my age.

    I was, but after 10 months lifting I think I can now say I'm at least average

    I always thought there was something wrong with me because I was so weak compared to other men. Turns out it's because I weigh almost 20kg less than the average man so no wonder 65kg skinnyfat me can't lift as heavy as other men who are 80-90kg. Now I've started lifting so on my way to strengthmog them....

    Yeah it’s because I’m tall though so I was always underweight until I was 22. I started eating more and lifting a few years after that though. 40kg bench press was hard at first but now I can do 70kg after 6 months. I’ve got a long way to go but I feel capable of doing it now. I only wish I started sooner

    OP

    I've started working out this year (did it before, but had a >6 month break, so idk if it counts. I've worked my way up to a 1RM, 40Kg bench press (that's just the plates (20 each side), idk how much the bar weighs). Pretty proud of myself.
    You can do it too OP, keep working!

    Legs are stronger muscles than what people let to believe when it comes to raw strength, upper body muscles are weak.

      OP

      well yes, since they're so much bigger, volume-wise. plus you work them everyday, so it figures.
      related question: why can I do a 100kg leg press, but can't break 60 on a barbell squat? don't both use the same muscles? is it because of the pose?

        You don't need to stabilise yourself with your core muscles to do a leg press.

          OP

          you're right, thanks

          Weak core/spine. Leg press is cheat way of doing a squat which is not much.

          Do deadlifts as well or KB farmer's walks and chin ups for a stronger core and stabilization of the spine.

          For core, I do decline crunches and planks, I like the way my core feels afterwards. Can't do chin-ups yet unfortunately, too fat; I'll keep that in mind tho. Thanks!

    I was born with 5 inches. Multiple women have laughed at me. 2 inches is literally the difference between slavery and being a godlike human being. I'm about to go joker mode.

    Strength varies drastically among different people and groups, where I went to high school I was weaker than what seemed like everyone around me.

    Fast forward to college and even when I was just starting in the gym I was stronger than most of my peers aside from those actually involved in athletics.

    You have to just focus on continual improvement.
