How Athletes Should Train Bodybuilding

Bodybuilding requires you to focus on compound movements and isolation movements. The key concept is to have controlled eccentric movements. You don’t want to be blasting through a bicep curl or descending quickly when bench pressing. You want to focus on controlling the exercise movement, having solid movement patterns, and having the intent of moving the weight as quickly as possible through the concentric aspect of the movement.


You want to have a laser-like focus on technique when using bodybuilding training for athletic development. The technical focus will take you through a full range of motion. Going through a full range of motion will allow you to embody the tagline, “Lengthening is strengthening.”

By focusing on bodybuilding concepts like tempo, and the full range of motion, and targeting joints where specific weaknesses may exist, you will be able to sure up and enhance your athletic potential.
