the legitimate explination is down to muscle fibres types, amount of each the individual has, the muscle and tendon natural rom and the individuals preference for rom, i.e some people do bench press at shoulder width, hell i've seen a few who's hands are touching the plates and they are lifting heavy, its basically proves what we already know, everyone is different
