Yesterday I was surfing around on YouTube and couldn’t believe how many great training videos of bodybuilders were online. Pro bodybuilders tend to have a particular way in which they train. You’ll see a lot of specialized techniques. For example, you’ll see partials focusing on the bottom ROM to keep constant tension, you’ll see heavy partials at the top ROM for overload, you’ll see squeezing with lighter weights, and you’ll see cheat reps. Each bodybuilder seems to have his own style when it comes to training. I’m a big fan of watching all the different types of athletes train, especially bodybuilders, powerlifters, Olympic weightlifters, and strongmen.
Brad Schoenfeld and I have been writing for several years now on why bodybuilders are so damn muscular. Sure superior genetics and anabolic steroids account for much of their results, but their training, characterized by decent muscular tension and high metabolic stress, also impacts their hypertrophy. See these three articles to read more about bodybuilding training:
Here are some videos for you to watch when you have some spare time:
I hope you enjoy the videos!
