Y'all need to go to http://www.rossboxing.com/
Very good description of what different types of strength there are. Maximal, explosive, endurance, good stuff.

On its own and after reading first and the previous post to the you posted, it does not have enough info to make sence of what you are getting at. I'd be very surprised if u do ever explain what u meant. Even if u do Im not sure I would care enough to reply.

I'll explain, kid.

Thread starter asks what we believe the average 1 RM is for a middleweight. I share. Another guy that we have to go to a website that explains different types of strength, endurance he said as an example. And i ask how endurance is relevant to 1 rep max. then some clueless jester jumps in and starts juggling balls.

At a guess my good man, I'd say that endurance strength would take effect at 60%-80% of 1RM. 1RM is used as the basis of defining relative effort in some weight programs. Its done like this because everybody lifts different amounts of weight. What I thought u were doing was trying to pick holes in whatever rosstraining guy said, that would have been dumb, glad I was mistaken.

I was just trying to clarify the different types of strength( as elaborated by Ross) as the thread seemed to be heading in the functional vs. absolute strength area. Granted all are intertwined to a certain degree for any given activity...

Absolute or maximal strength is definitely the foundation for all types of strength, but they definitely differ! For example, a crossfit guy may be able to do 50 clean and presses at 50KG, whereas a powerlifter can clean and press 250KG a few times.
