    Bodybuilders vs powerlifters?

    What do powerlifters do that keep them relatively small yet strong compared to the larger size of bodybuilders?

    Hyperthorphy, check any bodybuilding split and you will see the difference.

    powerlifters concentrate on using fullbody movements to shift a weight

    bodybuilding concentrate on stimulating a muscle the best

    1-7 reps is what alot of powerlifters will use. thing is u can go up to a 15 rep PR and guess what you've gotten stronger. It's mainly about diet a 160 lber that deadlifts 585 doesn't take in many cals but he takes in lots of protein.

    Remember seeing a 58 year old man that weighed 158 deadlifting 585 it was insane
    Lifetime PR's

    Squat w/ wraps 405x2
    Squat no wraps 385x2
    Bench Press TnG 300
    Bench Press w/ Pause 270
    Deadlift 425
    OHP 165x2

    A battle with Costochondritis from August to October brought my lifts down significantly. I'm only squatting 315x3, benching 225x3, and pulling 365x1 now. I'm rebuilding carefully. My triples on squat and bench used to be sets of 8. I also could pull 365 for 5 in the past. Hope to get back to my old lifts within 3-6 months.

    bodybuilders all about figure and definition.. powerlifters all about strength performance
    Cutting for a while..

    They don't eat on a surplus too often. You can get stronger whilst remaining the same size if you don't gain weight. That's what PLers that stay in certain weight classes do.

    My mistake. I never ate on a surplus and stayed the same size for a long time. just got stronger.

    Now every 2nd person comes to me and says "Oh you're too small to be pushing that weight".

    And I'm like... okay.jpeg....

    There was this guy with a stanford rowing hoody on at the gym last night, he was like 6'6" and thin as a rake, but he deadlifted 4 plates... it was pretty wicked.

    Typically powerlifters have lower volume workouts. Bodybuilder's utilize TUT (Time Under Tension) to promote muscle growth. Powerlifters are the opposite, and whilst they're not racing with the weight, they do perform controlled and explosively.





    I've always just considered myself an avid weightlifter, and have always trained for strength, speed, stamina, and athleticism; until recently, now I've been finding I gain fat free mass just as easily as strength. More than likely, I won't compete in either bodybuilding or powerlifting, but return to the sport of strongman in the LHW division (231lbs).
