Lean vs Large

Okay so after only a few months on this forum, I'm figured out that everyone seems to think differently about physical conditioning. Some swear by heavy lifting to be bigger and stronger, while others seem to favor a tighter leaner musculature and strength.

It should be known I have gone by the lean route and swear by it's effectiveness. I've never met a giant of a man I couldn't stomp. That's not to say there isn't a skilled man who could stomp me into oblivion who's big. But in my area no one who's big, isn't slow and heavy handed. So my personal believe is very subjective.

So lets settle it. Which is more effective in the cage, on the street, and in general. Does being big and being able to muscle somebody make you better overall? Or does the ability to be spry and agile make one a better overalll fighter.

I don't mean to brag but I'm a pretty big kid (6'1 240) and when I wrestle I just seem to run out of air so easily no matter what kind of shape I get into. Being strong is good but alot of musclemass will put unnecessary weight onto your body

I think in a street fight it helps to be big (as long as you know how to put your weight into your punches) because most street fights are over within a few moments of the first punch being thrown. When it comes to compete in most sports though, aside from being a big lineman in football, it is more productive to have a more lean body frame and be more agile with more energy to spare.

i believe leaner strength is better because you can dodge and run circles around big guys until you get some good shots and knock them out.plus they have like way less endurance and acid build up quicker and makes there big muscles worthlesss
