Why would the external loads be based on bodyweight? I thought we ventured out into the world of the so called real world, functional strength. For example, I've never seen a sofa become lighter when a lighter guy picked it up during a move. All of the challenges of the real world are challenges of absolute weight.I'd suggest a better/tougher criteria based on the conversation, is 6 or 8 months training time to several unspecified tests of strength. You have no idea what you're training for but have been assured your subject will need to be "strong" to complete the tests. Any external loads will be based on % of bodyweight rather than on any specific weight.
