I started lifting as a bodybuilder and I recently(less than a year ago) started training for powerlifting and strongman. So know I keep my reps very low(1-5) and sets high(4-5 not counting warmup) and do just the big three exercises with 2-3 assistance exercises.
Well I have noticed that know that even though I am eating more carbs and fats in my diet and having 1 full cheat day a week to eat what ever I am actually making really good bodybuilding gains. Like my strength in the big three exercises are increasing every week but, I am noticing that I am making even better bodybuilding gains.
Like my waist has decreased in size, my body fat is going down, my abs and veins are becoming much more noticable, and my shoulders and lats are are spreading out now... why am I making body building type advances now that I am not even training for that.
