The reason why you Starting Strength evangelists and the main bulk of uneducated gym rats in general get almost everything wrong about strength is that they don’t know the fundamentals of human physiology! You can lift more without becoming stronger, in a physiological sense, but if you got physiological strength adaptions(i.e. myofibrillar hyperthrophy) then you de facto became stronger, no matter how much you can bench or squat! Try reading some of the articles that I linked to above again, not that I think it ever will sink in though…
