Your ability to perform CPR has nothing to do with strength - it is determined by your weight, your weight distribution, the stiffness of the victim's chest, and the method of chest compression - manual (with then hands) or heel ( with the heel of the foot.)

Use of heel compression quadruples the number of people that can perform 2 inch compressions for ten minutes.

When the people who are most likely to have the opportunity to perform chest compression, it it likely that they wil most likeiy be able to do so with Heel Compressions,
