As the fitness network GI said, Efferding made the shift to powerlifting to bodybuilding and was able to compete in both for a long while. He had already acquired great strength from powerlifting, so his journey to bodybuilding was designed merely to take his physique to new heights, and he did.
The Rhino wouldn’t be himself unless he couldn’t overcome potential lose of all his gains. Maybe it hasn’t happened because Efferding would have slowed his aging down.
