    powerlifting routine.....will it build mass?

    sorry for the dumb question, but could i build some decent mass doing a powerlifting routine + a good bulking diet?

    or will it mainly build strength with little muscle growth compared to a traditional bb'ing routine?

    There is some wriggle room to gain strength without gaining size but in the long run nobody gets a lot stronger without getting a lot bigger

    I've never seen a good powerlifter who looks like a marathon runner. You might not place 1st on a bodybuilding stage but you can still easily look huge/ripped if you are a powerlifter who diets down once in a while.
    Current Bests (raw/singleply)

    Squat- 435 / 512.5
    Bench- 280 / 308.5
    Deadlift- 495/ 534

    Goals:

    - Squat 500, Bench 325, Deadlift 550 raw at 181-220.

    - Give the recreational bodybuilder thing a solid effort.

    Yes, definitely.

    I've been doing Bill Starr's 5x5 for intermediates. Technically a strength routine, not sure how much you want to split hairs between a "strength" vs "powerlifting" routing, if there's even a difference.

    Before starting it, I had cut down over 4 months or so from a skinny-fat 185 to a lean 160, and started lifting on a one muscle group a day, once a week split.

    June 1st to December 1st, I bulked up from 160 to 195. Did Starr's routine, about 3/4 of a gallon of milk per day. Took in about 3200-3600 calories a day. I don't have any body fat measurements, but I'm pretty sure most of that 35lbs is a muscle. I moved up a notch on my belt, but my pants still fit. I've gained a solid two inches on my arms, and none of my business suit jackets fit anymore.

    Bench press for sets went up 70lbs, 100lbs on my squats, and I never regularly deadlifts before Starr's Int. 5x5.

    But yeah, long story short, you eat enough, and work hard enough, you'll gain quality mass on a strength/powerlifting program.

    Well if you are competing in o lifting you will most likely be doing a lot more total work per week then you might on a powerlifting program, so basically the same idea. You will most likely have some weaknesses visually but if it doesn't bug you and you get stronger in your main goals then you should have no problem looking halfway decent and moving around some serious weights eventually.

    Yes, you will put on mass. But you won't look like a bodybuilder.

    Ive never seen anyone lift heavy and eat plenty and NOT get bigger. The key is not eating TOO much and putting on more fat than necessary.
    Yes I'm 62 and natural

    When you are using speed-strength method in which you are trying to move moderate/heavy weights with a high acceleration so results with higher force output ; to emphasis on acceleration and quantity of the execution you will want to keep volume low for these types of exercises especially if you are novice in this method. Since the volume will be low so the protein degredation this will have a low effect on musculoskeletal system and as a result of this you won't see much hypertrophy gains at least will not be comparable to a bodybuilding type program. This shouldn't mean I am recommending you not to perform these types of exercises . They are great for increasing neurologic efficiency which is generally overlooked in bodybuilding programs and I believe it is necessary for bodybuilders to improve but I want to imply don't keep a high expectation to pack many muscle as a result of performing these types of exercises.
