Because your brain has limiters on your strength so that you wont **** up your muscles, but when you're a zombie the limiter is gone

Because the brain is only left with primal instincts. And ignores the muscles saying "b-but brain-san, i-its too much! I might tear!" and the zombie just goes on till it rips its own muscles apart.


Same thing with the drug PCP, it tells the brain to ignore the signals, hence why leakheads often go on rampages when they've had too much

zombie's have no sense of fatigue or stamina, they literally give 0 ***** . they can rip their rotting arms off and feel no pain

The frontal neocortex is what limits our strength output. When in a stressed situation, the neocortex 'deactivates' allowing us to unleash our full power output (scenarios where people lift cars to save people.) This is also why apes and babies have strength proportionally higher than in a person who's neocortex has developed. In the hypothetical situation of a zombie apocalypse where the brain atrophies, I can see how the neocortex would waste away, allowing a zombie to access what seems to be 'super-human' strength.

Well, Terry Pratchett actually had a good way of explaining it. Basically, while you are alive, your mind inhibits your ability to control yourself simply because it would be too much to handle. You would go insane from the stress of having to handle every little bit of your body. When you're dead, though, that doesn't matter anymore, and you (whatever part of you refused to go after death) are completely in control. You can have every single muscle in your body pulling in the same direction, for example, so your strength can easily multiply by 20.

crazyolitis, going off of what you said, (i don't want to get lost in the replys) there was a mid-evil means of torture where they put you into an extremely uncomfortable position where it causes your muscles to cramp. after enough time, the cramps get so bad, that it shatters every bone in the body
User avatar #8 to #7 - tarfyki (08/02/2013) [-]
there are some truly fascinating means of torture. people back then were so creative

Because if I use more than just my finger strength, the bag will explode and shrapnel chips will kill my family. And even worse, I'll have lost my snack. To break open somebody's ribcage, throwing your whole body weight into their solar plexus and solely putting all that weight on your fingertips would pierce through most likely, and then you could use all your muscles AND all your joints, because joints are designed to give us leverage. Using every little bit of your body to rip open their ribcage would be difficult, but still possible. And add in the fact that everybody is at most only going on about 1/4-1/3 of their true strength due to your brain's inhibitors, and a zombie wouldn't have this... well, you'd be wreckin' 						****					.   
   
Don't 						****					 with me Colin.

You can easily rip a bag of crisps if you use all your force, but there will be crisps everywhere if you do so, so you subconsciously apply moderate amounts of force in a way that don't seem like it will ruin the bag, making it seem harder but you get a more controlled result.

Zombies on the other hand has no subconsciousness stopping them from ripping things apart full force, they just do it.

Because we are a lot stronger than we think. We could break our bons, just flexing. However, there are nerves preventing this kind of **** , so you won't break your hand trying to grab a glass of water. Zombies, if they were to become real and possess such strength, would lose brain funtions, including the part of the brain controlling those nerves. Ofcourse, this would only be partially, because the zombie's own bones aren't breaking.

Normal body: Struggles with everyday tasks, such as opening simple food containers.
Zombie body, complete with rotting flesh and degrading muscle mass: Can rip others' limbs off.
Seems legit.

one of the reasons i can never take zombie movies/games/programes seriously
to survive all you would need to do is wear a pair of jeans and a semi thick or leather jacket
add a bike helmet to that and no zombie is ever gonna hurt you

When you're alive, your brain limits your strengths to what you can handle without harming yourself (Endurance)
When you are a member of the undead, or you a zombie bitch, the brain's only instinct becomes to kill and/or eat under any circumstances.

Zombies are 10 times stronger than a man, in the original works of fiction.
