I was replying to the OP's post. I suggest that you go back to school and take a class of common courtesy.Originally Posted by -sin-
As for the OP, why did you state in your post "minus all the variables of training". As the only way to subtract all the variables of training would be not to train at all, it sounded like you were asking about untrained strength potential. This is not a flame, but the way your original post was worded that is what it looked like you were asking.
ExtremeAnabolic, I appreciate your response. Although I didn't intend to ask the question that you answered initially, I did plan it as a follow-up. As to why I wrote "minus all the variables of training," I'll quote myself.

I think that a person hits their repetitive rep strength between their late 20s - mid 30s.
I think that a person hits their high rep endurance strength in their late teens - late 20s.
It's really cool that powerlifting has masters classes (40-49, 50-59, 60-69, ect.). This allows lifters to continue to compete and to compare themselves to their peers, rather than to the open class.
