    There are people that never touch weights and are stronger than people who have been training. What's going on?

    Fat gain and muscle gain are inextricable processes.

    I would rather say they are inexorable, or "Wyrd bi ful ard." To hearken back to some of our more barbaric forbears. To wit, the bad end of Grendel.

    I meant what I said, and I said what I meant.

    Some people are genetic freaks. Some people are fat genetic freaks. And some fat guys were always stronger than their peers because they ate more food and grew more muscle, along with that fat. And when you discover that you are strong, you are likely to display's that strength and be more physical (thus developing more strength, even if you don't lift barbells). Physically demanding jobs and a big appetite would also make you stronger, and potentially fat. Just my unscientific theory.

    So just by eating more, muscle can be created? Or does it have to do with the large skeletal frame? One guy at the gym could lift more than I could starting out. He had never done a deadlift before, but could lift 225 lbs. for 10 reps. He was fat and untrained.

    Gaining fat and muscle is inexorable? Impossible to stop or prevent? Your enormous vocabulary has failed you.
