More muscle = faster to burn during regular tasks?

I noticied over the years as I got bigger and bigger, that my muscles start to burn very quickly doing just normal things. For example holding up a piece of 30lbs drywall overhead with my shoulders will cause a burn to come on within a minute and after a few minutes the pain is excruciating to the point of getting very irritated. Or if i'm holding a 30lbs bag of groceries my forearms will start to burn very quickly. Why does this happen as you get bigger? Muscles seem to fatigue so quickly even with light activities.

IMO, its because for most of us bodyparts are constantly in some stage of fatigue from training. I think if you took off 1 or 2 weeks from training that the situation you describe would no longer happen. I can attest to this as it happend to me personally. After my heart attack I didnt train for a long time, and I never had fatigue like I used to after that.

Ya I've noticed this as well many times doing daily things. I was just playing with my baby girl and all I was doing was taking a toy with a string on it and making circles over her head as she laid on the bed and my shoulder muscles were burning like crazy after a short time. Then I watch my wife do the same thing and she can do it way longer than me. WTF!

IMO i think that happens because it takes more energy to contract a larger muscle than a smaller muscle. so the bigger you are the more energy your body uses to keep that muscle flexed as you carry groceries, hold something over head, etc...

also has to do with recruitment of muscle fibers. Strength training we are typically recruiting a high number of the total muscle fibers in the muscle. We are training to recruit a high amount of muscle fibers when we contract the muscle so in everyday life the muscle does what its trained to do (contract most of its fibers).

You're overcontracting
