body sculpting vs. body building

#1 Postby RawveganPeruana » Sat Nov 19, 2011 12:45 am

What is the difference between bodybuilding and bodyscultping?

Do you train more with body building??

I saw on youtube videos of bodybuilding.com of ladies being interviewed and they seem to be doing the same routine as I am, but they are calling it bodybuilding. They are not taking steroids, just protein supps and glutamine and vitamins.
They have a lot of muscle but don't look huge.

What's the difference guys?? thanks :) Glad to be back here on the forum.

Essentially they are the same. In fact they are usually just two different terms for the same thing. However, body 'sculpting' can mean one is more inclined to defining and shaping, where as body 'building' can mean one is more inclined to adding mass and size.

Exactly. Same thing, just beware anyone who tries to claim they're doing a routine that would actually help "shape" a muscle group to a specific way, since it can't be done. You can gain muscle mass overall with weight training, but the two continual truths are that A) you can't spot reduce fat on a specific location unless you plan to get lipo, and B) you can't change the shape of a muscle in a specific manner, it can get larger or smaller according to your training, but you can't (for example) do anything that would specifically target JUST the lower part of the pectorals, anything you would do for chest will affect the entire muscle overall.
