    Train for strength, you'll get muscle mass; train for mass, you'll get strength. You can put an emphasis on one or the other, but you basically can't get just one and not the other. I started training for power, and my arms grew. Your muscles are becoming stronger through gaining size and strength; not just one or the other. Hope that helped, and if I'm wrong, someone correct me (I'm fairly new to weight training).

    Yeah, about diet...What should I eat? I have pretty much no knowledge of cooking good, healthy food. Right now I don't really eat much, maybe a bowl of cereal or pop-tart in the morning, a pb-j and some baked chips for lunch, and fast food for dinner, yes I know my diet's horrible for the most part, so what can I do?

    always a good idea to head over to the diet forum for this kind of question. Check out the stickies and you'll be set.

    Generally speaking:

    A larger muscle is a stronger muscle (relative).

    A stronger muscle is not necessarily a larger muscle.

    This is not entirely true. If you experience myofibrilar hypertrophy, then the current, and potential, strength of this muscle will increase. If you experience sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, then very little, if any, strength gains accompany this increase in mass.

    Conversely, you can certainly gain strength without gaining muscle mass. Intramuscular and intermuscular coordination will lead to strength increases, but neither one causes hypertrophy. This is why the world record holders can squat 6x their bodyweight.
