Bodybuilding training will focus on building mass in each and every area of your body.

Spend a couple of years being progressive on a good beginner routine that focusses on a handful of basic compound lifts. After you've made some progress it will be clear if you were meant to be a bodybuilder, powerlifter, or just a general physical enthusiast. You can then tailor your training to your specific goals.

All true. Add: Bodybuilders build for symmetry also.

Bodybuilders need a good base so in there begining years they lift like a Power Lifter to get the base before advancing and tweeking there symmetry.
