Bodybuilding is a sport where participants focus all their attention on increasing their muscle size (hypertrophy). This is done with a combination of compound and isolated resistance movements.
While bodybuilders are usually very strong, their training differs slightly to powerlifters and strength athletes, as strength is often a by-product of their training. Bodybuilders generally have a high workload, using moderate to heavy weights, with minimal breaks between sets.
Bodybuilding training also consists of cutting seasons where participants prepare for competition. While training volume doesn’t vary much, bodybuilders usually restrict their diet and introduce an aerobic component to reduce body fat as much as possible.
