Your thigh and jaw muscles are the strongest in your body. Legs are generally 1-3x stronger than someones arms depending on the individual.

exactly legs are for support. the real strength are in the arm.

Hao try walking on your arms and see how long you can support yourself. Legs are far stronger this doesn’t even need answering it’s so obvious.

This. You stand on your legs for full hours on end, but if you tried walking on your arms for ten minutes, you’d be done for.

that seems more or less due to the fact of how wierd of balance your body is in dude to the extra mass of your legs in the air in addition to the fact that your arms aren’t shaped to carry an upside down human not for long anyways

In order to compare the two muscle groups, we should think of a way to measure their ability to do work, in this case, an exercise that is similar to each other. Standing shoulder press (aka military press) are analogous to squats. They are each exercises that move weight away from the middle of the body in each direction (upward and downward).
An average male who doesn’t workout at all, weighing 150 lbs, 6' tall, could probably shoulder press 40 lbs maybe once, whereas he could probably do a squat (with no weights) maybe 10-30 times.
