5/6s will build some size, and definitely more quality size than 8-12s (they are a good balance, hence their popularity). But it's rare to find an advanced lifter who does higher than 5s. So in the weightlifting arena, I would consider 5/6s size building because if the goal is strictly strength, lower reps will work better
