    Theres strength training and hypertrophy training. Strength training is working out at lower reps(1-5) and gaining mostly strength. Hypertrophy training is working out at higher reps(6-12) and gaining mostly size.

    Thats basically what it is but maybe someone else may be able to give you a better explanation

    Hypertrophy - A nontumorous enlargement of an organ or a tissue as a result of an increase in the size rather than the number of constituent cells.

    Pretty much increasing the size of the cells. You don't gain much strength from hypertrophy if any at all. It can actually be counterproductive if you go Cutler or Coleman style. Hypertrophy doesn't define fitness and can limit range of motion if you become as large as the aforementioned bodybuilders. But hypertrophy occurs when you gain strength too and build muscle. It's not bad, hell no! Just depends on the degree of hypertrophy
