Default Can we separate strength vs size

Is strength and size correlated ? Is a bigger muscle a stronger muscle and vise versa? Also i know there are different factors that involve with strength like leverage es and neural efficiency etc.. but besides that im talking about just pure muscle size ?

Correlated, yes. But there are other factors and powerlifters gain strength with no increase in muscle size all the time.

A larger muscle is a POTENTIALLY stronger muscle

So what causes powerlifter to gain strength but no increase in size if mechanical tension /progressive overload are the keys to continue growing?

You forgot about diet. A caloric surplus is required for any significant muscle mass gain.

Powerlifters gain strength without size due to how they train and their diet.
