    you won't get size without strength gains. but you can't just compare two sizes and say one is going to lift heavier than the other, there's a lot more involved

      I'm asking if bulking is just a meme

        Bulking is a meme for bodybuilding, because you'll lose aesthetic and the gains you make aren't any better than what you could've done just eating normally
        But for powerlifting getting fat improves your strength

                He bulked, although he did it like a retard, there is such a thing as a lean bulk you know just 500lbs+maintenance, picrel bulks and cuts for months and never loses his aesthetics

                That's what I mean, you shouldn't bulk so much that you get fat
                You obviously have to eat at a surplus to make gains but going overboard has no benefit

                That is a lean bulk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BKbu_s8p1Q
                I don't think Rippetoe has given a recommendation for bulking and post body

    No but bigger size gives you great strength potential

      Picrel is the correlation between bench and pec size, so r>0.7 is strong correlation. They aren't 1:1 but they are highly correlated if you use the same form throughout especially general strength training and not powerlifting.

      This is retarded unless you are a beginner/early intermediate you'll make extremely incremental gains because the more advanced you are the more resistant you are to strength training.

        Even if you're a beginner you'll just spin your wheels. If you're a 140lb skelly how do you get to 190 eating at maintenance?

    Gladiators and ancient barbarians weren't very big funny enough, however they spent most of their time hunting and fighting so they built the proper muscle fibers to kill which crossed over to some occasional rock lifting.

    It means more potential for strength, but not pure 1rm strength directly unless you train for it.

    muscle will have qualities besides size. a poor quality muscle is not as strong as a high quality muscle of the same size

    Strength is mostly genetic.

    If you’re natty yes, not natty no. Most Mr. Olympia competitors only built their physiques with fluff & pump machine volume work because of the right combo of genetics and drugs. Natties don’t have that luxury.

    Strength has a practice and neurological component. Someone who has built their muscle using higher rep work on the compounds and isolation work will have a lot of strength potential just from having all that muscle mass, but they'll still need to train strength for a few months and do a peaking cycle before they can express that strength the same way that someone who always trained purely for strength can.

    For all intents and purposes, yes. The thing that trips people up is that the "mirror muscles" don't always equate to the muscles being used for a particular lift or feat of strength, and this makes people think there's a discrepancy. The most common example I can think of is all the people saying "hurr durr this dude has a big deadlift but he looks DYEL!. Meanwhile they're judging DYEL-ness based on flashy muscles like chest and arms when the main movers of the deadlift aren't show-muscles, but your lower back/glutes/hamstrings.
