When I was a Kid, I was strong enuf to basically do ANYTHING I wanted to. Would carry 2 hay/straw bales-One in each hand when we were putting up hay. Actually, carrying one in each hand like that was easier than trying to handle just one. The only time I ever really "Overloaded" myself was when I picked up a 289 Ford "Short block" motor. But I came by being strong fairly honestly-My Dad had no idea how strong HE really was. I don't remember my dad EVER "White-Eyeing" on ANYTHING. He basically had NO idea of how strong he REALLY was.
