    Look at Olympic powerlifters, some people who compete in the same class are built like Arnold and others are built like Donald Trump, mass is mass when it comes to strength(its actually more genetics and muscle composition than anything, but you probably don't want to hear that)

    Certainly not an educated Zilla answer but Id say protein would only come into play in the long run. I.e continuous muscle breakdown without any protein for you body to use for repairs.

    Short turn, I imagine it comes down to having enough glycogen in the muscle from carbs. (your body can use other things to replenish it but carbs are the straight forward way.)

    Then youd have things involved in the signal pathway from your CNS and the muscle itself. Electrolytes & water. Not sure if sodium, magnesium and potassium are all used but probably are. Id imagine the nerves use some other things to transmit the signal but Im to busy with Netflix to google it!

    My bad I meant to say, Olympic weightlifter, I understand that powerlifting movements are different, but what I said still applies, some people in the same corresponding weight class will have a significantly higher body fat percentages but still put up just as much as someone with significantly more net muscle and lower body fat. Of course, this can be caused by certain leveraged advantages that are affected by height or having a larger gut. But what others have said here is still good advice, protein, but also carbs. You dont want to go for a max rep with depleted glycogen stores....

    This really isn't rocket science.

    The key differential between powerlifters and bodybuilders, in this context, relates to 2 things: the type of weight gained and weight classes.
    With regards to the type of weight gained, PLers don't and shouldn't care about it. So they can afford to eat a much large surplus in comparison to a bodybuilder. This does not mean sacrificing protein by the way. It just means more carbs and fats.
    With weight classes you are obviously limited in how much you can truly "bulk". Therefore protein intake may be set more to maintenance level vs growth level. Keeping carbs higher makes sense to maximize training progression. And..that's it.



    Stop caring about how many meals per day you have. Or what time you have them. Unless it's like, really retarded (1 vs 12 meals, training fasted, etc). Adherence is all that matters with regards to this stuff - whatever works for you. Your focus should be on the essentials - training progression and a diet (cals, macros) to sustain that progression. Nothing more.
