Strength Training 101


Strength is defined as “the ability to overcome”.  


Overcome what?  


In order to figure out what kind of strength you need, you need to figure out what you want to be strong at.  And, then develop a progressive program challenging you to overcome more and more resistance.


In the fitness world, resistance usually revolves around weights, bands, machines, cables and bodyweight exercises.  Finding different ways to combine these tools and implementing the right level of resistance can help you achieve your strength goals.


If you are trying to get stronger for sport or for a better quality of life, you generally start in the same place.  But depending on what you want to be able to overcome determines what roads you’ll take to get to where you want to go.


Strength comes in many forms:

  • Speed strength
  • Agile strength
  • Strength endurance
  • Relative strength
  • Max strength
  • Explosive strength
  • Starting strength


There are many ways to train for each.  But first you need to find out which ones are important to you and why.  Then be able to develop a specific plan on how to get there.


I’ve been training people since the year 2000 when I first started working towards becoming a certified personal trainer.  Every program I’ve written has always had a strength based focus.  




Many of the competitive athletes I’ve trained as well as grandmas, grandpas, and desktop athletes have all needed and benefited from improved strength.  It’s just that some had a different end result needed based off of the goals that they were trying to accomplish.


If you want to feel better about yourself, be able to make life easier, impress your family or friends, get calls for help when people are moving, you need a progressive training program that is built around developing one of the seven types of strength.


Not only does strength training help you get stronger, because that is what it is designed to do, but it also sets the foundation for you to be able to change your physique.  If you want to tone muscle, lose fat, or get into bodybuilding, strength based programs set the foundation to get you moving in the right direction.


If you’re ready to get moving, set up a consultation and we can figure what types of strength you need to help you reach your goals.
