Yeah most powerlifters are fat...but then so are bodybuilders 90% of the year. The solution is the same; keep your diet in check if u wanna look good.
Moreover there are plenty (hell I'd say the majority) of people who dont actually like bodybuilder aesthetics. Not all of us think swole arms look that great. For rge majority of people they just want to looks like NFL players. Who are on...power
The idea that only bodybuilding workouts get you looking good naked is demonstrably wrong.
says who? i think the only people who are outspoken advocates of bodybuilding routines/disregard strength are TK and cool the kid. TK did a bb show and cool the kid has an irrational fear of squatting/deadlifting and strength training. no hate, but i think this post is largely coloured by rhet's latest period. most of the posters itt are talking about lift pr's, not the sickening quadruple drop set arm pump they got on today.
outside of that, the whole bodybuilding versus powerlifting routine thing is an overblown distraction. i think it would make much more sense to emphasize the importance of busting ass consistently and focusing on long-term progression on an "okay" program versus getting caught up in the endless pissing match between training philosophies in the search for the optimal routine.
