Powerbuilding??

Hi

i know what is bodybuilding, and what is powerlitfing…

but whan you talk about powerbuilding i’m a bit confused.

Which kind of training you refer to?

I would use that term to describe how I train. I train with strength as my primary goal and indicator of muscle gain. I lift very heavy with my last set often ending at just 4 reps on some exercises. The goal is still muscle gain and a lot of it. I think this term has only popped up recently because of the growing number of weekend warriors crowding gyms lately all acting as if they are afraid of the heavy weights.
