It CAN work that way. It also might not. Many of us have gained strength with no size. What that means is something else was the part of the system that needed to adapt to add strength. Like neural force etc.

If you get bigger, you will get stronger, but if you get stronger it may or may not be FROM getting bigger.

Size begets strength but strength doesn′t beget size. 🙂

It might be possible to get stronger and not bigger especially for beginners and on compounds movement because of intermuscular coordination and intramuscular coordination. But look at an exercise like strict curl. If you can get stronger on strict curl I′m sure your biceps will grow too because intermuscular coordination doesn′t play a role in a strict curl and intremuscular coordination is (very) limited.
