Strength is the ability to generate muscular force against an external resistance. Strength training is more than just lifting heavier weights or adding more muscle; how you approach your workout program can provide a number of benefits not only for your physical health but for your overall outlook on life.
On episode 30 of All About Fitness strength coach Dan John and I discuss a number of benefits of strength training. Besides being an expert on strength training and human performance, Dan teaches religion and philosophy so our discussion delves into a number of ways that getting stronger can improve your life both in and out of the weight room.
Strength training is a good metaphor for life; you have to work to overcome challenges. If you work hard enough and take the right approach you can accomplish great things. Some days you’re going to have the strength to overcome the weight, while other days the weight might get the best of you. In life it’s not what happens to us but how we react to it. That's just a little preview of this episode of All About Fitness - enjoy!
My personal approach to fitness is to have the ability to enjoy awesome activities like lifting heavy things and playing in the mud during a Spartan Race
