How Strong Is Strong Enough?
"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".
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Supposed standards from Hoffman (supposed pre-steroid era)
Just thought it would be nice for comparison.
Esp. the weight classes.
