Kai Greene is one of the top bodybuilders in the modern bodybuilding, having won the Arnold Classic on multiple times, and being a 3-time runner-up at the Mr. Olympia, knows certainly a lot about hypertrophy and growing massive muscles. As Kai explains,
It is not of any importance to him how much weight he can bench or lift, his primary focus is contracting the muscles the best way possible for hypertrophy.
Don’t get it wrong weightlifters are those who are regularly trying to lift heavier weights and are not doing it to ‘build muscles.’ Bodybuilders are those who care about building muscles and are not concerned about how much they can lift or how much they bench.
The common mistake we see in gyms all the time, Bros bragging about out lifting someone who is bigger than them. What most ego lifters do not realize is that bodybuilders don’t care about setting a new bench PR their only concern is building a bigger, better proportion physique and the best way to do that is not by lifting as heavy as they can.
