Crossfit is the best program for Bodybuilding
 
Prove me wrong.

What derives more muscle growth:

Full body lifts or compound lifts?

3 x 8 - 10 reps 3 - 4 times a week or varied rep range - high intensity (closer to 1 rep max) 6 times a week?

What cuts body fat faster LSD (on a treadmill) or High intensity weighted interval training?

Two of the most popular "new age" bodybuilding and fat cutting programs are Chad Waterbury's "Anti Bodybuilding Program" and Cosgrove's "After Burn". Put them together and you have a program very close to Crossfit.

Point me to fitness models or bodybuilders who look better than Nicole or Eva.

Crossfit, blows away any program for putting on mass on the back and legs...all the muscles you can't see in the mirror.

Prove me wrong....

Starting Strength as rx'ed (with the gallon of milk per day)?

Unless you consider Starting Strength as part of CF.... I guess as a MEBB?

I'm not arguing with you, but the thing is that "all the muscles you can't see in the mirror" isn't gonna be what your prototypical "bodybuilder" is going for. They want big gunz and a big chest.

I'd say that while SS and CF are complementary, they are not integral to each other... in the same way that Zone and CF are not integral to each other.

And I think it pretty much goes without saying that SS is a superior mass gaining program compared to CF... but I wouldn't call it "bodybuilding." Besides that, neither program ensures symmetrical muscle size, just symmetrical strength.

You got no argument from me there!

In my own case, my right side is a little bigger than my left, and I don't much care, but if I was a competitive bodybuilder that would be an issue.
