My bad. I misread the first part. If we are talking bench press, it has to be thought of in terms of bw %. If the 100lb guy benches 135, pound for pound he is stronger than a 300lb guy who benches 350. But if they are both 200lb guys, then yes, the dude who benches 350 is stronger.

They could probably just as easily knock out a couple hundred pushups without batting an eye. Far easier than a dude who benches 300lbs could just jump up and nail an iron cross
