I don't think you or Jungledoc have to worry about lack of work.

They will have the same amount of strength, and will be able to lift the same poundage.
But the fat guy will lift less weights on barbell because he has to move his fat, too. So maybe it depends on the place where the extra fat is stored. If it is in legs, it won't be too big problem for deadlifts as if it were in arms or somewhere up there (like in head).
I think that no-one is thinking about the effect of bouncing of that fat in certain lifts, like in squat.

Yeah, but those machetes are much of what my job is all about. I wouldn't mind losing it, though, if it were because the people of the PNG Highlands had stopped chopping each other.
