Not SoI think CrossFit athletes ARE bulky, at the least the ones I see on TV.
You could just as easily look at CrossFit athletes and see examples where lots of barbell work is not making them bulky.
I used the Barbell to get bulky on purpose. I realize there are many things you can do with a barbell. But I think if you want to get bulky on purpose, the barbell is the best tool for that.
This is the best tool for getting bulky, gaining weight, etc.
Barbell Training isn't necessarily any more effective than a well written and executed Kettlebell Training Program, etc. in conjucntion with an caloire surplus.
