    Thanks DOC. I have learned for all the guys you mentioned including yourself.

    Some of the things I see you write blow my mind (half the time I have no idea what you are talking about lol) I want to be an asset to this board now, as so many have helped me along the way. For that I am grateful.

    Great community.

    Great community.

    If you want to be an asset, all you have to do is survive a night of drinking with YaYa.

    Question is: Can you do it???

    DT, question - how about "bodybuilding" for powerlifting?
    We know that in order to optimize hypertrophy, volume is key, and there's whole sorts of things about the types of muscle fibers and stuff. But in your opinion, does bodybuidling have a place in powerlifting? Nowadays, people seem to be focusing on the mindset of "hit the weights for 3-5 reps and your done".

    Yes absolutely. Your accessory can be higher rep, lower intensity, short rest. You can have a "bodybuilder" day as an extra day as well. Nothing wrong with getting big.

    I had one of those sessions myself today. Killed shoulders, bis, tris. High rep scheme.

    You can also do a cycle in your programming where you focus more on hypertrophy. Still get your main lifts in at lower reps, but for say 8-12 weeks you are hammering BB style exercises as well to get the muscles big, then the next meso cycle you can make them strong as you focus more on strength rep/set/intensity schemes.

    I see I see... so just putting your big lifts in "maintenance mode" and focusing on hypertrophy... awesome. Being strong and looking strong too haha

    amazing post, seems to be largely forgotten even by a lot of powerlifters who seem to have turned focus to "powerbuilding"
