"How Strong Is Strong Enough?" by Mike Brown

Summary: Evidence from a number of different types of research as well as observational data indicates that maximum strength is strongly related to sports performances that rely on speed and power. Although explaining performance in strength/power sports is a multi-factorial problem there is little doubt that maximum strength is a key component. Thus, it may be stated "you are never too strong".
