    LOL. You are pissed OP!
    Bodybuilder vs Powerlifters

    Different Regimens

    Power lifters tend to do dirty bulks- Eat what ever to gain size and strength and work to be stronger.


    Bodybuilders- Usually play around more with their food intakes. Watch calories and are more into definition - so You will see them combine anaerobic with areobic.

    As well, leaving a inane post like 'what is google' just inhibits people who may be a bit shy from posting. Maybe eagermuscle doesn't want to help but plenty of other people do.

    And googling that will not get the answer the poster wants either.

    Bodybuilding and powerlifting differ in the techniques by which they are perforned. Both are styles of weightlifting yet they differ in the desired look and function. Bodybuilding is based on acheiving a certain look, an asthetic, while powerlifting is strength-based, form over looks.

    Both can be fantastic for muscle building, and often bodybuilders, like me, use powerlifting style training strategies for growth and strength.

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you MassBuilda for explaining it so well and so succinctly--and for encouraging GayBigMachoDU... at the same time. The google answer was indeed inane and arrogant, and not at all of the spirit of this web site, which is to encourage good health and physical development.

    I have found both types of training to be helpful, and I am interested in both results: power and sculpted muscles. I also combine it with cardio (swimming and incline on the treadmill plus skip rope during boxing training) and abdominals--exhausting bt burnes int he right places and has given me good results.

    If anyone on RJ has earned the right to lose patience and be snarky it's me and given the number of recent profile views I've received drama is apparently what members like, but you're more right than you know in that I should've known better since I'm familiar with the OP's other RJ identities which show that aside from his self-admitted attention deficit disorder he's clearly developmentally disabled, making my uncharacteristic comment trebly unwarranted. Apparently you're unfamiliar with his other RJ accounts and threads which are rife with far harsher replies by other members. Perhaps you should do the OP and RJ a service by publically calling all of them out for bad behavior as well. Start by responding to members who replied to another initial request which can be construed as reasonable from "GAYBIGMACHODUDE1972:" http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/1446220 Then peruse this thread sampling created by OP "GAYBIGMACHODUDE1972" under the username "bigbubba1972" to learn what prompted those reactions:

    In addition to taking a spin through my profile to see how short I fall of representing the spirit of this website you should again join forces with massbuildah after reviewing the links I've provided which reveal that replies by others referencing google to this OP are frequent. In return I'll admit guilt to a far more unforgiveable gay sin than arrogance - unoriginality!

    massbuildah saidAnd googling that will not get the answer the poster wants either.

    I'm sorry massbuildah, but that response was even more inane than mine. To quote the OP: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=what+is+the+difference+between+bodybuilding+and+powerlifting
    And how can you purport to know precisely what answer the poster, who you now know is anything but shy, wants?

    I see nothing wrong with this reply. Maybe it could have been worded more gently like this: google "powerlifting versus bodybuilding" many good links. Succinct way to point you to information. Wasn't that your intent or did you really just want to start a conversation? Even in that case, would have been more logical to get the basic info then if you had a question you could have started a thread.

    bodybuilders are competing to show off there bodies. they are trying to get there body in the best looking shape they can.
    powerlifters are not concerned about there body. most powerlifters are usually stocking and not very lean at all. bodybuilders focuses on the entire body when they are working out. whereas a powerlifter does not care about all muscle groups they only worry about chest, cleans, snatches and deadlifts.

    ^^This guy wins the prize.

    Bodybuilding is an aesthetic sport, where the goals are achieving a specific-looking physique. The training regimen of a bodybuilder is usually split so that entire workouts are devoted to specific muscle groups (eg. a day for chest, a day for legs, etc). It tends to be heavier on isolation exercises for maximum hypertrophy.

    Powerlifting is a strength sport, where the goals are athletic-based (ie. how much you can lift). The training regimen of a powerlifter usually focuses on the bigger compound barbell lifts that work multiple joints simultaneously: bench press, overhead press, deadlift, power cleans, snatches, etc.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the usual barbell lifts (bench press, squat, overhead press, cleans, snatches, deadlift, etc.) all, to some extent, cover all the major muscle groups.

    I've just started my work out plan and I m glad I saw this post Body building Vs Power-lifting as I was trying to learn the difference between the two. 1st I know I want to shed some body fat, then start a good protein diet. I think Body building is what I am going for, but I am not looking to gain allot of mass just muscles to a point then sculpt them. I reading so much and still haven't fully figured out what I need to do though. Thanks for the post. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.

    Bodybuilding is essentially about hypertrophy, which is achieved in one of two ways - sarcoplasmic and myofibrillar. Once you understand those, you can pretty much design a program that will get you where you want to go, IF you put in the work.

    Believe it or not, Wikipedia, truly, has a GREAT basic way to understand the difference, and the benefits of each approach. It's VERY simplistic, but pretty clear and makes starting out a lot easier if you get this much committed to memory. No joke. For once Wiki has a good take on the basics and I highly recommend anyone new to the game start here.

    Bodybuilding: sport where the goal is aesthetics, to look muscular, lean, larger and “ripped”. Competitions are judged by who looks better…
    Powerlifting: sport where the goal is to lift the heaviest weight in one of three of the powerlifts, bench press, deadlift or squat. Competitions are judged by who lifts more…

    Another way to define them is that bodybuilders prance around on stages in little bikinis with fake tans and oil all over their bodies… and… powerlifters eat McDonalds every day, shave their heads and grow gotees. But let’s look a little dCOLORED TEXT GOES HEREeeper…
