Why Are Powerlifters Strong But Not Big?

Powerlifters may be strong, but not big, due to the type of training that powerlifting involves. Neurologic adaptation to heavy weights as well as the type of muscle fibers that are stressed during powerlifting training both contribute to powerlifters being strong but not big. Powerlifting is classified by weight class, so powerlifters attempt to get as strong as they can within the constraints of their weight class.
