An undergrad survey? Seriously? An "honors student"?

And why would anyone be surprised by an orthodic group having slightly stronger calfs? This is because the calf has to do more work. Im not suprised in the least. This comparison is without good data, such as muscle mass, density, lifestyle information, runners actual running performances, the list goes on.

Just because a muscle has strength output does not make it better either.

There are loads of people I have worked with over the years who can bench press 2x more than me at max press, and ill work them into the dirt doing the same job that requires upper body strength where a good bench press would help. Why is that? Obviously theres more to it than muscle strengths.

Poor amounts of data and examples, good try though.
