Strength training vs. bodybuilding is sort of like the red pill vs. blue pill but in the lifting world. Many people choose the blue pill and live in ignorance of what the other side has to offer thinking that it has to be one or the other. What I mean is that a lot of the bodybuilding guys don’t think that they have to lift heavy and many of the guys in the strength training camp don’t believe that they have to care about how they look.
Yes, you bodybuilding guys can benefit from heavy strength training because the number 1 thing that makes muscles grow is DIRECTLY related to being able to lift heavier which requires more strength. And you strength training guys thinking that you don’t need to care about looks need to think again because in general, the size of your muscles literally determines your potential for how strong you can get. Here’s a picture of a guy who won the title of BEST bodybuilder in the world, 8 time Mr.Olympia Ronnie Coleman training like a powerlifter:
