Per canon, every Alliance marine undergoes genetic augmentation. So they literally are at least a tiny bit superhuman. Apparently sufficiently so that even female marines can carry armoured people around.
I guess so Although, that carry is fairly unrealistic for both males and females. The fireman's carry would've been more realistic by far. But ahh, i just enjoyed this shot when femshep is carrying Kaidan because visually it's quite amusing.
Make shepard he carried ashely that's normal but my character is Laudanum and I saw my female shepard or Alice carrird Kaidan I was like who's that's unexpected I thought it be arm on a shoulder but my character carried him that boy weighs 50 pounds or something add the armor
I think it's more the fact that it would be kind of an unrealistic carry for ANYONE, Male or female Armour is damned heavy! It's probably possible, but it would be much easier and maybe more effective to do another kind of carry, like the "fireman's carry" that one of the people above commented on (HikingHumanist).
I've heard of some of those cases too (mother lifts car to save child, etc.,), and it seems that in cases of grat psychological distress, our body reacts in a kind of instinctive way with more strength than we're consciously aware of.
Also, that's what happens sometimes when someone goes into an epileptic seizure and in that moment has strength enough to break someone's bones if they're in the vicinity, whereas regularly they wouldn't have that strength. Because their body regularly inhibits it for safety reasons.
I think it's the legs that really do it. Like she could swing him around like a bat and simply pummel Saren into submission.
Also I could see Shepard setting him up next to the lockers by the med bay and sticking him in various poses to model the half a million armour types you find everywhere. It's about all I'd actually use him for, personally I find Kaidan just a tad to much on the clingy side half the time.
The fireman's carry, along with the fact she is trained combat soldier. it's actually quite effective when having to carry a larger person out of harm, it actually surprised me more at how many people were shocked she could do it.
