At 6'2", 230 lbs., lifetime natural, Bla┼ż Hrastnik - Musclemania Pro says, "Some of you probably noticed by now that you reached a certain level of strength after a few years of working out and then you plateaued. However this doesn't make any sense if you are bigger,heavier + 5 years deeper into training. But then again, it does. After many years your taste for whats called a good rep changes. Now you no longer bounce the weight of your chest and use the moment of whole body to assist the lifts. Above all that you are significantly leaner which makes a hell of a difference. So if you can execute the same number of repetitions per chosen weight under these circumstances you progressed a lot!"
