WATCH: Pro Bodybuilder Outjumps NFL Prospect
Watch a bodybuilder take on a pro football player in the Broad Jump.
Athletes are known for their speed, power and overall athleticism. Bodybuilders are known for their huge muscles and ability to lift gargantuan amounts of weight.
Their respective styles of training reflect these differences. Athletes perform full-body workouts primarily featuring multi-joint exercises, and they focus on developing speed, power, stability, and, of course, strength. Bodybuilders perform lots of isolation exercises that work specific muscle groups (like their biceps), and they focus solely on promoting muscle growth.
This is why the bodybuilder crushed the athlete on the Bench PressÂ but couldn't even finish the 40-Yard Dash without getting hurt. And it's why, when TEST Football Academy pitted an Inner Armour bodybuilder against a pro football player in the Broad Jump, most of us expected the athlete to dominate. Much to our surprise and to the surprise of the coaches at TEST, that did not happen.
