Not as much as you would think. As long as you focus on the primary lifts, you can train for both sports at the same time.

A program like Wendler's 5/3/1 is real solid. You can periodize the real big lifts, while also adding in some work for both strength and size.

Programs like what Kman created, or what Jwood uses are both amazing for size and strength.

I trained like a bodybuilder for most of my life, but concentrated on compound lifts. It made me pretty darn strong. Point being - the door is wide open as to how you train.
