Powerlifters have plenty of muscle. There are no Elite level powerlifters without a lot of muscle mass. There are some, a small percentage, who reach Elite levels in gear and don't look jacked, but they still weight 270+ pounds and have plenty of natural muscle under their fat.
Fat changes the game. It's an illusion.
Me, JB and Gaspers are huge. Max Misch and Fazc, if they got shredded, could hold their own at any natural bodybuilding show.
We powerlifters might not work small body parts and bring up weaknesses, but overall we have the same, or nearly the same muscle mass.
Well I want to big strong and big, so surly powerlifting would be a better idea for most people?
Why not just do powerlifting in the first place if you want to be big?
