This question is kinda random,but I was wondering this today. Here is what I noticed.

Me:

Db tricep exts (40s) for 10 reps
Incline DB bench (80s) for 10 reps

My friend:

Db tricep exts (30s) for 10 reps
Incline DB bench (50s) for 10 reps


Now I know there are a ton of other factors, but I noticed im able to do about twice as much weight on the inclines, while my friend is not even close.


Is there anything to gather from this?

You are stronger than him? What are you looking to find out?

You are 20-30% stronger than him on both exercises. You are stronger, that's all it would tell me.

It most likely just means that you have significantly stronger shoulders than him and not as significiantly stronger triceps

Gains made on tricep extensions is pretty slow though.

Like others have said, in the grand scheme of things it matters very little.
