Powerlifting and bodybuilding are two of the most popular styles of resistance training. There share many similarities, but there are some key differences that you should be aware of!
Powerlifting involves lifting as much weight as possible for 1-5 reps, minimal machines, and a big focus on the bench press, squat and deadlift with some accessory work.
Whereas bodybuilding is all about taxing the muscle to get it to grow, which usually involves higher volume training. Many bodybuilders still squat, bench, and deadlift, but they do a lot more machines and isolation work.
In this video, our two newest female athletes, Sammy and Annie, along with Dean Perrone explain the differences between powerlifting and bodybuilding training.
Sammy is a powerlifter that loves to lift heavy weights for lower reps. Whereas Annie is a wellness competitor that prefers higher volume training, but she still lifts as heavy as possible.
Check out the video to learn more about their style of training.
