Right off the bat, lets just get one thing straight: Bodybuilders are the EPITOME of self-experimentation and taking anecdotal/empirical evidence and applying it a thousand-fold over and over. Some of the most SOLID knowledge on strength training and nutrition has come from this crowd—and will continue to. That said, can and SHOULD we apply everything we see/hear to mixed modal sport? Fuck, no. I’m going to outline some common strategies utilized by body builders, and why they should NOT be applied to folks training for performance in mixed modal sport.

1) Low carb

2) Low Calorie

3) Intermittent Fasting

Bonus: IntraWO, Casein
