I though I was the only skinny dude who can bend.  Just found this guy:

Looks like he stopped bending a while ago though.  Shame.

Well, there are plenty of really strong dudes who are not enormous.  

 

Wiggy, to the best of my knowledge, did alot of his bending right around 200#.  Which is obviously not lightweight, but he's not a 300# strongman competitor either.  Gazza was 185# and young Derek Greybill was a stout 155# when he bent several incredibly hard braced and unbraced bends.  Eric Milfeld is another pretty skinny dude who has bent insanely hard bars.  So... while there is a correlation between size and strength, its definitely not the while picture.

It all depends on how you are wired up.

Lots of leverage at play.  Use it to your advantage and bend big bars!
