Take Fran for instance, you'd be doing 35% more work on all the pullups. And for the thrusters even though you'd be doing the same weight, you'd actually be lifting more of your bodyweight on the squat as well so you're doing more work there too....albeit not 35% more because of weight distribution on the body and the 95lbs barbell common to both lifters.

Which is why the distribution for Fran on btwb looks like this...
men 140-160 sample size: 626 | mean: 6 mins 29 secs | median: 5 mins 56 secs | standard deviation: 2 mins 50 secs
men 160-180 sample size: 1956 | mean: 6 mins 13 secs | median: 5 mins 40 secs | standard deviation: 2 mins 53 secs
men 180-200 sample size: 2011 | mean: 6 mins 13 secs | median: 5 mins 42 secs | standard deviation: 2 mins 45 secs
men 200-220 sample size: 1025 | mean: 6 mins 34 secs | median: 6 mins 4 secs | standard deviation: 2 mins 55 secs
men 220-240 sample size: 407 | mean: 6 mins 57 secs | median: 6 mins 34 secs | standard deviation: 2 mins 59 secs
men 240-260 sample size: 128 | mean: 7 mins 17 secs | median: 6 mins 26 secs | standard deviation: 3 mins 1 sec
men 260-280 sample size: 60 | mean: 8 mins 27 secs | median: 7 mins 31 secs | standard deviation: 4 mins 2 secs
Wow, that is some impressive stuff you got there Matt. Very interesting.

In other news, I was 247 Monday night, and 241 this morning. Might not be able to post in this thread much longer.
