Just a quick question. Some powerlifters move big weight but stay at the same bodyweight. As long as im eating enough cals I should contiune to gain weight and strengh correct?
 
Well, powerlifting is known to facilitate the strengthening of tendons and ligaments, as well as increasing the effetiveness of neural-muscular pathways. The typically lower-volume powerlifting routines do not necessarily incur extensive damage to the muscle tissue itself, thereby stimulating only minimal hypertrophy.

The purpose of bodybuilding, on the other hand, is to encourage muscle fiber hypertrophy, which is, put simply, an enlargening of the muscle fiber itself.

In order to get stronger and denser, while at the same time adding weight and muscle size, I would want to incorporate aspects of both types of training into my regimen. I would recommend to start off every workout with a *core lift, going as heavy as possible, followed with higher volume, higher rep secondary exercises. I would also go heavy on the first exercise of any muscle group.

(Ex) Chest, tris, abs
- Bench Press - 4x5 + 1x2 with the first 3x5 sets being warm-ups.
- Incline DB Press - 2x8
- DB Flys - 2x10
- Dips - 2x5 + 1x2 with the first 1x5 being a warm-up.
- Skulls - 2x8
- Abs

Powerlifting alone will likely not quite get you that big bodybuilder look, unless it's already in your genes. But as long as you're eating enough cals and training with the right type of stimulus, you'll surely keep getting stronger and keep gaining weight.

*core lifts: bench press, squat, deadlift, push/military press, bent-over barbell row
 
clearly the lifting they do works for them as look at the three pwerlifts and all the big boys are huge where it counts, sure they may not have the great side delts but they could care less
 
Thats what im after. I would rather look like Phil Mekdisi or Yani Vertan over Cormier or Yates. I want to be brutally strong. Thats my goal for now. The only thing that got me is that sometimes you see a 150+ P/L who is just as strong as a 300+ P/L. Im looking for the big muscles (no shape) but the mad strengh to back it up. In the near future gonna try a test + fina cycle and P/L and see what kind of strenght gains I can get from it. Thanks for the input guys
