How do most of them do it, do they train for one for a couple months and switch or do they mesh them together?
Way back when, a lot of the top bodybuilders were also involved in Olympic lifting: John Grimek, Tommy Kono, Sergio Oliva.
Like Prof said, everything ties together. You’d focus your workouts around getting stronger in your competitive lifts, while hitting the bodyparts as “accessories”.
[/quote] Well, you also focused on getting stronger on the non-competition lifts… Just that you work up to triples, doubles or singles on the competition lifts and stay with higher reps on the other stuff… That is for powerlifter/bb combos, no clue about oly/bb guys. Just saying because “focus on getting stronger on the comp lifts and work the rest as accessories” sounds like the other lifts weren’t really increased much/not taken seriously.[quote]
If you had a contest in one sport or the other coming up, you’d gradually adjust the training, while still keeping the basic elements the same.[/quote]
Wonder how Ronnie would do if he were to readjust to PL training for a few months and then do a meet
