Powerlifters train for getting higher numbers and weight in gym lifts and explosiveness. Bodybuilders just traing for size, and try to get as much mass with as little bf as possible.

Powerlifting is where you train in a manner that allows you to be your best at a one rep maximum lift. Bodybuilding is just that...body building. You'll gain muscle with powerlifting yes but the two training styles are different and place different kinds of stress on the body so the body reacts in different ways to the types of training.
