It doesn't have much to do with how much you can lift. That has to due with muscle mass and muscle fiber recruitment. What it does have to do with is weather you gain any muscle or not (or even loose in some cases), and weather you are + - or = on fat too. It also matters what you eat.

Remember raw calories are the smallest part of the equation. What you eat is very important too. What you should eat is determined by your body and your goals.
