In this video you’ll I go over some of the differences between bodybuilding and powerlifting type of training and how to match these to your goal.
Specificity is key, you will always get specific gains in specific movements, whatever those movements are.
Lesson: If you want to get better at a specific movement you need to train that movement.
Each exercise is a skill. Like any other skill there’s a degree of learning you have go through before you become proficient at the movement.
Your body coordinating multiple or single joints to move the muscles.
Muscle growth is not optimal during the learning phase.
Study: Introducing Leg press vs Biceps curl the training.
Biceps curl started to induce hypertrophy much earlier than the leg press.
It takes your mind more time to coordinate multiple joints to move the muscles together, than a single joint, in case of the biceps curl the elbow.
During the learning phase you’re getting skill and neurological adaptations, new neurons are firing together and wiring together.
Once you learn the movement you will able to maximize hypertrophy with it.
This is why you don’t want to switch exercises too often to “confuse your muscles”.
Key point – When you take advice from the internet make sure to be clear for which goal that information is meant to be used for.
I see a lot of guys interested in size and looks that are training like powerlifters. In the end they might not get the result the wanted.
— Powerlifting —
If someone is a powerlifter they’ll choose different exercises than someone who’s primary goal is looks (bodybuilding)
The compound movements for PL will always be Squat, DL and BP since they compete in those.
And then they add movements that will remove weak links in the chain for the big 3.
Weak point can be lift or a muscle, that’s a place for isolation movements in powerlifting.
— Bodybuilding —
As a body builder you need to look at your body what is your weak point and then add exercises to correct that.
Usually this comes in form of isolation movements which is training come after your do your big compound lifts.
Focus on compound movements but pick those that will allow for symmetrical development.
Good rule of thumb is to have 2-3 compound lifts you’re constantly progressing at strength-wise and then alter isolation movements every 6-8 weeks.
The choice of exercise will depend what part you want to bring up.
