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...

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.
