The cool thing about strength is the there is a 'raising all ships' type of effect. I have shared with a few people my first time in a dedicated strength gym. Everyone was a strongman, highland games, or powerlifting competitor It's an invite only gym and I was fortunate to be invited. My first night was a bench night. I was thrown in with guys in my weight class and we started benching with them coaching me. They're 3rd or 4th warmup set was my 5 rep max... While they were able to warmup with 135, 225, 315, and 405 on their way up to their work sets, I was trashed and tapping out. Because their absolute strength was so great they were able to cruise through weights that weaker athletes struggle with. This applies to grip strength as well. Guys with great grip strength don't have to work as hard to grip the gun tightly. What was formerly their 100% effort is now only 70% effort because their absolute threshold has been pushed so far. They can get the same or better results with less effort simply because they are stronger.
