    Question Strength training vs Bulking?

    Hey guys, I think i bulked up to my goal. And some guy at the gym told me that I should start up strength training. I bulked up from 140 my freshmen year to 165 the end of my sophomore year, and from 165 to 183 to this date. My goal for bulking was 185, but gaining a extra 2 pounds this one guy said wont make much of a difference. Believe me i have changed alot between my freshmen and junior year! So know I want to begin strength training, What is the difference between strength training and bulking [Diets, training, routines,etc]? And do you think I should continue bulking or go onto strength training? Please help me out, i am eager to learn. Send me a link or what ever, im serious about this...

    Thanks...

    Bulking refers to how much you eat. Strength training refers to how you train. The two are in no way mutually exclusive, in reality the best results are when you combine the two.

    strength = ability to lift a lot at once. bulk = hypertrophy, aka muscle mass. in bodybuilding, it's mainly sarcoplasmic hypertrophy which means there's is more intercellular water within the contractile proteins. myofibrilar hypertrophy is when you actually increase the amount of contractile proteins. this is more of the size you get from gaining strength. it's also more dense muscle. but the size you get in terms of sarcoplasmic, is actually more water, although you will gain what appears to be more overall muscle mass. sarcoplasmic hypertrophy is less useful though because you will not gain much strength... although there are some cross-overs. it's easier to appear bigger with the sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. but to train for maximal results in strength and size are two totally different things.

    for strength, you wanna rep lower at a very very very very heavy weight and rest for a long time. you don't necessarily train til failure at the end of each set too.

    for hypertophy, you rep about 8-12 times and will hopefully be at failure by the last rep. you also rest a lot shorter too. this increases a lot of stress on your body and there are other hormones and other stuff at work.

    but like i said, there are some crossovers. but there's a reason why powerlifters don't look the same as bodybuilders.
    People ask why I train so much and eat like I do all the time... Well, the answer is simple:
    I will not allow somebody with half the determination and twice the genetics be better than me.
