"Its not a matter if losing function as much as not functioning as well as you could."

Body builders lift to look good, the strength is a bonus. If they wanted to be as strong as they could be they wouldnt look they way they do, but rather like the rock when he was rediculosly jacked.

But there is a trade-off. The kind of chisseled he-man look that bodybuilders go for isnt made for strenght. The different muscles are carefully made to look a certain way to be pleasing to look at. That is not how you optimize a strong body.

Thank you for reaffirming my assumption that you have no idea what you're talking about. Your username is pretty appropriate.

"The muscles are made to look a certain way to be pleasing to look at," and how do you suppose they do that, exactly? With a chisel? Yoga? No. They do it by lifting weights. You have to damage the muscle in order for it to be rebuilt bigger and stronger. The bigger and stronger the muscle gets the more and more weight it takes to actually do damage to it in the gym. They aren't made specifically for strength, no, but that doesn't mean they aren't strong.

There are literally thousands of hours of videos on YouTube proving you wrong.

Saying a person has built their body more for form than function does not = saying the muscles have no function.
#74 - bazda (18 hours ago) [-]
Saying that someone has built their body more for form than function implies that there is a trade-off, that function is lost somewhere in the process. The group think (again, from people who have never set foot in a gym) is that there is form OR function. You can't possibly look like a bodybuilder and be strong as fuck, despite the existence of people like Ronnie Coleman and Mariusz Pudzianowski.

Bruh. Bruh, srsly.
I didn't say that. I implied it, maybe, if you wanna be a snooty asshole about it.
But you know as well as I do what I meant.
People who work out to be fit gain muscles to be fit.
People who work out to show off gain muscles to show off.
Read the image macro again.
#68 - Ken M (19 hours ago) [-]
No seriously, let's have this discussion right now.
And for respect of Bazda, I want to clarify that I am not him.

The image-macro, is first of all from a drawing-tutorial, it holds no scientific value other than assisting artists in drawing muscles correctly.
Comparing the bodybuilder and the supposed strongman is in itself fallacious, as both move huge amounts of weights to achieve similar goals, you only need to look as far as Arnold Schwarzenegger if you wish to see for yourself. Furthermore if you look to Haftor Bjornson, currently the worlds strongest man, you'll find that he actually does not have the body that is implied to be the "strongest of them all", he too, have a build leaning more towards that of the bodybuilder rather than the supposed strongman body.

And on the count of "functional strength", can we just get rid of this notion all together? There is no such thing as "dysfunctional strength", a muscles strength is directly proportionate to its size.
"But the nervous system! but muh non-activated motor units!", A muscle will not gain mass if you do not activate it properly, yes, they must work in conjunction with one another, but you will not build mass without having these things working already.
#166 - phonicghost (10 hours ago) [-]
I think you'll find he looks more like the "strongman".

And the implication that bodybuilders are weak is not that they have no strength, its that the muscle mass they have, while producing a person much stronger than the average male these days, doesn't have the infrastructure like supporting layers of fat, or fully developed core muscles, or the ideal nervous structure. If we're talking strongest, the strongman body wins. The bodybuilder is strong, but cannot be as strong as the strongman.

#171 - Ken M (9 hours ago) [-]
Can we get rid of this idea that fat somehow helps the body, when it doesn't? Fat has absolutely no benefits to a lift, nor does it somehow "protect" the organs as is implied. I will once more point out, that the image-macro, is a drawing tutorial, and as such should not be treated as scientific evidence.
Implying that bodybuilders do not possess fully "developed".. alright I'm gonna stop you right here and assume you meant they aren't fully trained, which they very much have to be to be regarded as a bodybuilder, it's not "bicep-building" or "chest-building", it's bodybuilding.
And I'm gonna skip your comment on the nervous system, because shit's getting silly.
"that means I was right ab-" no it doesn't, it means I already explained it in the previous comment. Bottom line remains, both of them lift heavy shit to build muscle mass. To imply that a bodybuilder isn't "built" to lift is retarded.

Haftor is currently the worlds strongest man, and stop trying to justify the stupid mum-science that accompanied the image-macro. It is ONLY a drawing tutorial.

www.sciencedaily.com/terms/adipose_tissue.htm

www.ivyroses.com/HumanBody/Tissue/Tissue_Adipose-Tissue.php

www.sportsci.org/encyc/adipose/adipose.html

Three quick sources which reference adipocytes (ie fat cells) acting as organ supports. Theres also the physics of increased mass from fat helping produce momentum to fight the inertia of the weight.

When I said fully developed I was talking specifically about the core abdominal muscles (not just abs, I'm talking about muscles like the interspinal and internal abdominal obliques) which from what I've seen from bodybuilding competitions, are MUCH MUCH more developed than the average man, but not to the FULL potential of the muscles.

In fact, I specifically stated that a bodybuilder is in fact quite strong, and many of them blur the lines between powerlifter and bodybuilder, some of them coming from a background in the former.

I think you'll find the Central Nervous system is rather important to , you know, movement
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_nervous_system_fatigue

You may notice that I didn't mention the image at all, I was simply talking about the difference between Strongmen and Bodybuilders

You'll also find that Zydrunas Savickas actually won the World's Strongest Man competition 2014 and Brian Shaw recently took the 2015 1st place. Bjornson was 2nd and 3rd in those respective years.

A little summary of what I’ve said
Bodybuilders are not as strong as powerlifters in the 3 main lifts, but they could be pretty close if they focused on it;
BB’ers are strong;
Strongmen are way stronger than a body builder

You're really adamant in derailing this discussion, aren't you? "you may notice that I didn't mention the image at all", which is why you miss the point completely.

But I'll engage anyways, and look past your snide attitude for the sake of argument.
We'll get rid of the CNS-point right away, since you seem to be under the impression that I don't know what it is, when I clearly pointed it out right from the beginning, so to keep in similar style to yours: Reading comprehension much?

In regards to the core-muscles, you seem to be under the impression still that bodybuilders don't work these, or as you state, not to its full potential, which again is a load of bollocks, they themselves lift heavy, they themselves require these muscles to achieve that, and as stated earlier, it is bodybuilding, not bicepsbuilding or calvesbuilding, it's bodybuilding.

And the reason why you keep missing this point is because you don't argue from the point of the image-macro, which has been the basis for this discussion right from the beginning.
