 Apr 17, 2013 Dear, I'd like to know how can I measure my strength-to-weight ratio. Anyone suggest a good method? But, for example, before I begin my training, I was 65kg and did 12 pull-ups (good grip on fingerboard), today I am doing 22 pull-ups and I am 69.5kg. Is correct to say that I almost doubled my strength-to-weight ratio? Since (22*69.5)/(12*65) = 1.96 ? Thanks for your comments. Brito FilhoJoined Mar 12, 20130 points
 Apr 17, 2013 You're so HUGE!!! Can you do a pullup w. your ego yet? That is the true measure of strength to weight. Make sure to take off your shirt, put on a beanie, and wear manpris next time you measure since surely your original data was skewed if you omitted any of those parameters.

 Apr 17, 2013 No, doubling your strength-to-weight ratio would be to crank 12 pullups w 1 arm. rebootFrom Westminster, COJoined Jul 17, 2006163 points
 AdministratorApr 17, 2013 You are measuring both strength and endurance. Using the method here sciencelearn.org.nz/Contexts/S... your strength has increased by 1.32 while your strength-to-weight has increased by 1.24. Doug HemkenJoined Oct 1, 20045,776 points

 Apr 17, 2013 If you have more weight than strength, you suck more. If you have more strength than weight, you suck less. Dear chuffnuggetFrom Bolder, COJoined Sep 14, 201122 points

 Apr 17, 2013 Wondering what He-man's S:W ratio is... That's funny, I guess I didn't pay attention when I was a kid. I thought castle greyskull was Skeletor's castle. Sure is a creepy castle for a hero like He-Man to be hanging out in. Mike BeluFrom Indianapolis, INJoined Jun 3, 2012136 points
