    Sorta... in powerlifting we do a lot of accessory work in bodybuilding ranges and in bodybuilding heavy compound lifts are a base for growth. There is always some crossover.

    in powerlifting we also train to meet a set of rules

    well said POB. I am neither a bb or pl but do know that they will share some aspects in training. Different people need to train in different ways for their body types and end goals.

    That chart represents a maximum effort day for me.

    Dynamic effort days require weights in the 50-60% range.

    Repetition days are exclusively about volume. I will do sets of 20...and if I get a wild hare...sets till failure at 30 reps and beyond--with little rest. Powerlifters need muscular gains as well--especially if you are jumping a weight class.

    From looking at this list I can tell you there is a lot of cross over that should be done in order to achieve maximum results. I know many a bodybuilder who would look at this list and agree with me. I for one over the years have mixed and matched variations on this list over and over again.

    And powerlifters enjoy life more because most of us eat pizza and drink beer. I have a lot of respect for the discipline of real body builders though.

    This for sure. I think both real PLers and BBers can benefit from using protocols from each others style of training. I personally go heavy with low reps and volume for the 4 main lifts and higher rep higher volume for accessories with an overall goal of BB. What's the point of being big if you ain't strong?

    I thought pl and bb change it up at certain times to confuse (dont know if thats the right word) the body or is that an old wise tail?
