What Is Strength Training ?

Fundamentally, strength training is the use of resistance to improve the body's ability to reach higher levels of movement capabilities. If done correctly, it will provide significant benefits and improvement in overall health and well-being, including increased bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength and toughness, improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, a productive increase in metabolism, improved cardiac function, and elevated HDL (good) cholesterol. In a nutshell, it is an involved process through which a person makes intelligent choices towards the seeking of higher levels of physical improvements (for sports or everyday life activities). Here is more about what is strength training and what it can do for you — and how to get started.

Build Strength That You Can Use

If you ask your body to do a little bit more work, your body will respond. If you continue to ask more of your body over an extended period of time, you’ll vastly increase your ability to improve its performance and overall health. "Why?" The human body has a master design that reveals multiple capabilities. It is highly adaptable to a variety of conditions and stresses and will always be a work in progress. Please understand that success is not gained overnight; it is cultivated over time. The human body will know what to do when introduced to proper nutrition and stimulus if it is done correctly and patiently.

Take a moment and ask yourself this question and then apply it to your goals - "Fundamentaly, what is the body designed to do?" It is designed to move. The human body can:

1 Stand and Locomote On 1 Leg and 2 Leg Base Of Support

2 Push and Pull

3 Level Change

4 Rotate

Build "MOVEMENT" Strength

Therefore, the type of strength that we should be asking our body to achieve is "MOVEMENT" strength.

Strength training can do wonders for your physical and emotional well-being. Obviously, if you ask your body to do the work needed, you’ll vastly increase your ability to improve performance and achieve any goal (or goals), you set out to accomplish.
