No. These guys are all fairly strong.

There are certainly tricks and techniques that can up the intensity, so to speak, like rest pause and drop sets.

Most of the guys that slide into pump programs built the majority of their size before doing so. This is not to say they haven't found a way to stimulate new growth now, but it's complicated these days. There are so many chemicals involved.

You can't go into the gym and avoid strength no matter how much you pump.

Once you've built a big strength base, it's much easier to maintain muscle, but it becomes much more difficult to build strength. So I can see why these guys start trying different things to eek out pounds and ounces.
