Hey, guys…I’m trying to process a statement made by one of the Pro’s who possesses one of the more aesthetic physiques.
I’m paraphrasing, but in essense he said:“If you LIFT like a powerlifter, you will end up with the BODY of a powerlifter”. UUUmmmm…
So my questions (and confusion!)
1)If two guys are really pushing the poundage (a bodybuilder and a powerlifter), is there something inherently different in their lifting that will lead to different results? In other words…isn’t a heavy bench and heavy bench? Or is it more a question of their differences in emphasis, focus and make-up of their workout schedule?
2)Are the differences in physiques more a question of diet? (I’ve read of many a powerlifter who could put down the groceries with little concern about it’s content! By the way, a SUMO’s diet is pretty “clean”, but there are just amzing AMOUNTS of food!).
Well…let’s discuss this…and hopefully clear up some confusion!
