why so weak?
im 22 6'2 215. Ive benched 375X1, dead lifted 365X5, and squatted 335X5. In the past year ive done a total overhaul on my diet and now am almost all organic and generally health foods. I have never felt better nor looked better. My strength is non-existant. Ive been told i dont get enough carbs, but could that be the only reason?

I switched to organic foods last year. I didnt notice a drop off in strength. I ordered organic protein powder without Gluten or Artificial sweetners and continued to keep my same supplements. I have not been sick or felt run down since i made the switch.
Are you playing any sports that require a great deal of stength?
If not and you look and feel better why not just go with it ?

What does your workout look like? Try doing compound lifts with alot of frequency and switch it up with speed work to work your fast twitch fibers. Also a good routine for squats is Smolov. Intense but very rewarding.

Overall its better on the joints just better on the body if you can lift lighter weight and get the same efffects as lifting heavier.
I do each set at 45 sec intervals once I get started so lighter weight feels heavier so far so good . Carbs and sleep do play a big role in power as does not overtraining

depends on your goals. personally, i'd rather look like i can put up a **** load of weight rather than be fat and haul heavier loads. it's just not attractive in my book. if you consider yourself to be in the best shape of your life, well then more power to ya bro. don't be so concerned with training for strength. strength will come back to you over time. post the particulars of your diet and training and maybe we can set you in the right direction if something is amiss.

Good for you, I'm almost in the other side of the boat there,.
I am having trouble getting large, but strength seems to be high. Squats ar at 12*300 10*320 8*330 6*350 for a typical set, yesterday i squeezed out 360 for 3 at the end. I try to eat a lot and up cals, but seems to be going to waist. I do a full body routine MWF. and get about 7 hours sleep. Job is stressful as hell, though, owning a restaurant sometimes sucks. I am sure my age may play with that also, but I feel about 25, not 40.

I knew them well enough and for yrs to say they were natural they took stuff like Powerfull but natural as far as no roids or growth hormone.
I knew them because time I used to train at 4am before work they just got off work they worked for city utilities .
I subscribe to training a muscle only once a week thats just me but I picked it up from them.
Have you ever tried it I mention it only because for me I wouldnt look like I ever worked out if I didnt let the muscles rest your routine would destroy me.
Everyone is different so thats just me but 40 lol thats nothing .
Stress I dont care about but sleep I need . My brother in law had a restaurant in Miami he loved it but eventually sold it due to my sisters nagging over the hours and no weekends free .
Now he is miserable in an office job oh well I warned him not to marry her lol

Remember, though too, full body is only one set per muscle group per workout. I dunno... any ideas?
