    Is it possible..

    Other than an increase in bodyweight, is it possible to determine if increases in strength are due to increased muscle recruitment in the CNS or due to muscle re/growth? Just curious.

    Increase in measurements I guess. You could notice I guess if you are getting bigger. When I get stronger I always get bigger, it's just the way my body works.

    It is possible to measure CNS recruitment but I have no idea how you do it. Probably using some sort of device that can detect action potentials innervating target muscle tissue. Or maybe even measuring a muscle before a period of training, then noting the hypertrophy during training and comparing the strength gained vs that hypertrophy against some sort of average strength / hypertrophy point.
