Yes, it is possible to have less muscle mass than a body builder but still to lift far more. Body builders, such as Ronnie Coleman and the renowned Arnold Schwarzenegger, strive to sculpt their bodies for purely cosmetic reasons. They are strong, certainly, but strength is not their endeavor.

To support my claim that . . .

"Yes, it is possible to have less muscle mass than a body builder but still to lift far more."

. . . I will provide you with links to two YouTube videos. The first shows Ronnie Coleman bench pressing 495 x 5. Look at how huge he is. The second video shows another man, who is still muscular, but much smaller than Coleman, benching 500 x 10.

Allen Baria 500 x 10 bench: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zO6buEbEvQo&feature=channel_page

Lastly, I will leave you with a relatively skinny wrestler, bicep curling 50 pound dumbbells (per arm) with good form. Look at how strong he is for his size!

The size of muscles does not depict a persons strength. The density of the muscle does.

If someone has large, but not dense muscles, and someone else has smaller, but very dense muscles; then yes.

Metabolism is also included in this, as someone with a higher metabolism can last longer, doing hard work, than someone who does not.
