Wow thanks for the shout out there csulli, feels good lol. Guess I'll add some input:
I do consider my lifting aimed more towards the 'bodybuilding' aspect, ie I care more about gaining muscle than I do about gaining strength, BUT I also have always cared about gaining strength as well, I spent a lot of time focusing on strength, and have always trained certain lifts (bench, deadlift, sometimes squat, others) more like a PLer, which is why I believe my numbers are respectable. That said, I don't think doing these things do as much for muscle gain for me, I just want to also be strong.
For example, a few years ago, I was, let's say, 90% as strong as I am now, but barely looked like I lifted. Since changing the focus to more bodybuilding, target and feel the muscles working etc type movements, my physique has improved significantly, without my strength increasing too much.
Basically I think a lot of BBers are strong because they probably spent a lot of time focusing on strength, and still do on certain things, even though they also do a lot more "BBing type" movements, and probably have more focus on making sure everything is balanced, ensuring no real weaknesses.
