Well, the only reason we're so weak in general is because sensations of pain kick in to stop us from causing self harm. If said mentally handicapped individual has a lack of sensation or cannot feel pain then they would be capable of pushing their body further.
humans in general can only use 20-30% of their muscle at any time. there are barriers in our brains that prevent us from going beyond this threshold. for those with mental handicaps however, these barriers are compromised, allowing them to surpass normal limitations, albeit with increased risk of bodily harm.
Paid donut wrangler here with some anecdotal evidence. My first client was a 6'4, 250 lb man well in his 60s. When he finally snapped (couldn't conform to the standards of care I had to, by law, give him), he busted down my front door and ran from me. I had a pretty solid door, and he ran @ roughly 8mph for a good 3-4 miles. Before this incident (at least the 6 months in my care), he rarely left the bed on any given day.
>>35947488 some of the effects of down syndrome are lack of muscle mass and general muscle weakness, it takes more effort for people that suffer from the condition to succeed in any physical activity or sport
>>35947488 I used to transport retards, and there was this one guy who basically rocked back and forward all day to Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash all day at extreme speed. One day I came into his room to get him ready and his caretaker was getting him dressed, and he had ridiculous abs.
>>35947650 Imagine a 24 year old dude chasing a guy in his 60's through the cold, quiet country night. The old man is on foot, the 24 year old is just creeping in an Impala. On occasion, the old man looks back and shouts a string of expletives laced with worry and fear.
I heard that the reason chimps and gorrilas are so stromg is that they lack fine motor skills, making them far more unco-ordinated than us, but able to use far more muscle at any one time, and thus stronger.
Maybe a similair thing is replicated in handicapped humans.
>>35947596 That means that Eddie hall can deadlift 3000 pounds or Spoto can bench 2100 pounds. It's pure nonsense
>>35947488 It's a meme- retards are less inhibited and likely to not consider potential self harm , however. Retards tend to have more resting muscle tone, so perhaps their CNS is in hyperdrive and muscles slightly more hypertrophied compared to the average person who doesn't strength train.
I used to go to a YMCA when I was a kid like 20 years ago for karate. They had an absolutely shitty nautilus there for weights, including one of those bench press machines from the 80s. No one really used it except this one down syndrome guy, who would do one set of like 6000 @ 150 pounds. Its like he was too stupid to get tired.
>>35948165 Show me one scientific evidence of that
Oh wait you have none. Fuck off weakfag. I know faggots like you. You're the shithead that shittalks about other lifters to your shithead friend while you deadlift 2plates because you don't wanna go too heavy.
I hate when retards try to sound smart by parroting shit they heard and passed as "common sense" with no proof
Just like when retards tried to sound superior saying the earth was flat, natural sugar is better than processed sugar because its natural, cigarettes kill germs in the mouth and help you look younger, and every fallacy in the book.
>>35948315 yes, you would injure yourself it would also be your ultimate 1rm the main reason for retard strength is lack of self control, it's like dealing with a person that's beyond pissed off - whatever they do they're gonna be flooded with adrenaline and basically go to failure which is a considerable amount of strength, even for a normalfag - remember, noobgains is CNS activation, same principle applies here, except it's significantly less controlled
Hi OP, I'm a nurse and i take care of 2 indian retards. they have poor motor controls, and obviously don't know how to control their strength, but they're not physically strong. i think what "retard strength" refers to is the lack of fine motor control. whenver retards drink from plastic bottles or paper containers they always squeeze the hell out of them
I remember seeing a special on TV about cops dealing with strange situations.
Apparently two cops who lifted couldn't hold down a 14 year old rampaging retard. The grandparents said that because he was mentally handicapped, "He didn't know that he wasn't supposed to be that strong." The cops were in complete disbelief of how strong the kid was.
Sped teacher here. Every person on staff at my site from teachers, aides, office staff, psychs, and administrators go on about how strong some of our students are. I can't help but turn away because I just know I make Costanza faces in response. The mentally handicapped may be strong to normies, but any trained athlete, especially a strength athlete, is stronger by far.
>>35947488 Retard strength is very true. Here's a story I was told by a mate of mine who's mates with a family with a downie kid.
>lets call the downie Jack because i really can't remember his name >Jack is 13 and just starting high school >Parents work late, but the high school is near their house so they decide to let Jack walk home by himself to give him some independence >Literally his first day of school >parents come home later that night, Jack is sitting in the kitchen drinking from a milk carton >he's battered and bruised and his shirt is torn >Parents immediately freak and assume hes had his shit kicked in >Sit down with him and confront him >"Jack, who did this to you?" >Jack says nothing and continues to drink >"Jack, you've been hurt. Who hurt you?" >Jack is silent, still drinking >"Jack, you have to tell us hat happened." >Jack finishes his milk, puts the carton down and looks up >"...I caught a troll" >"what?" >"I caught a troll. See." >Jack stands up and rushes out to the backyard to their shed >The door is tied shut with some rope >"see in here, troll." >Parents open the door >inside the shed, is a man in a daze. More specifically, a midget. >"See! See! Troll!" >The midget is even more beaten up than Jack Basically the story is the midget lives between the school and Jacks house, and he'd been out the front collecting mail when Jack, thinking he was a troll, attacked him, knocked him out, carried him home and threw him in the shed >Parents wake the midget up and apologize greatly, end up paying his hospital bills or some shit >Midget decides not to press charges because Jack is a fucking downie an didn't know better. >Parents drive Jack to school now.
>>35947488 It's real. Retards operate primarily with low functioning brains that don't require as much blood or calories to function. You know when you're lifting super heavy and get light headed because you needed that blood elsewhere? That's how retards are all the time.
You can achieve a similar level of strength and experience accelerated gains merely by pretending to be retarded. Studies show that shitposting can temporarily lower your brain function allowing your blood to be concentrating elsewhere aka aid recovery and lifts. I regularly shitpost for about 4 hours on my rest days and during my workouts. I've added about 80lbs on my OHP in 2 months using a combination of shitpost recovery, shitpost workouts and thinking about shitposting before bed.
Once you get into the habit of shitposting frequently and as you fall asleep you begin to dream of shitposting causing your recovery gains to skyrocket.
>>35955166 This fucking story has been posted a million times all over the internet with tons of different variations. Sometimes the "jack" is a roommate who's drunk or tripping on LSD and the "troll" a midget or a tard, but never seen "jack" written as a retard, so kudos to you for being atleast somewhat original.
