Let's Talk About Strength | Personal Training - Huntington Beach - At The Beach

In our previous week's blog we talked about the 7 components of physical fitness: strength, power, agility, balance, flexibility, muscular endurance and cardio vascular endurance. (if you haven't read it yet, then click here).

For our first segment of the seven part collection we will be talking about the importance of STRENGTH!

Definitively, strength is the maximal force that a muscle or muscle group can generate at a specified velocity. Strength is a very important aspect of physical fitness because strength is so functional.  

Think about your activities of daily living such as lifting objects off the ground or lowering objects from shelves on to counter tops.  Simple tasks like these all require strength.  Now, how does a person build strength? Easy! Strength training, also known as weight lifting.  

 

For a balanced fitness program, strength training is essential. It can slow or completely diminish the muscle loss that comes with age, build the strength of your muscles and connective tissues, increase bone density, cut your risk of injury, and help ease arthritis pain. Just make sure you are educating yourself and seeking advice throughout the process. Having an expert trainer will not only ensure your safety, but also allow you to feel confident enough to add weight and explore more complex movements in the future.

 

Your body has the unique ability to adapt to anything.  Make sure you're consistently pushing yourself beyond your limits to force your body to change. One of the most common sayings in the fitness industry is, "take it to failure." This means your weight lifting 'set,' should be hard enough that eventually your body is incapable to fulfilling what's asked of it.  Thus, you've taken it to failure and will force your body to adapt to become stronger and capable of it in the future!

 

With that being said, get out there and lift something heavy! It will do your body good!

Stay Healthy!
