There are lots of parts of fitness and wide variety of ways in which you can make yourself fit and healthy. I have no doubt in my mind that strength is one of the critical elements of fitness. One can also divide strength into various elements. You can improve your strength through number of strength training exercises.
In order to be strong, it is quite important that you train all of your muscles. It is not good enough to just train your upper body. When you only focus on your upper body, your legs will remain weak. Plenty of bodybuilders and athlete’s will build up a lot of strength in their body meanwhile and just forget to focus on other body aspects. For example they might train their pecs, abs and shoulders but forget their traps.In order to train the maximum number of muscles, make sure that you use either free weight training, or body weight training will assist you to do this. Free weights just means that you are lifting the barbell or dumbbells on your own. Using these will have a significant say in your movement control and you will not feel any requirement of weight balance. Even better, it will also cause your body to move in the way it does in real life – recruiting number of muscle groups and balancing both you and the object.Even once you have trained all your muscles though, there are still more fitness parts related to muscle strength. Your muscles can be ‘strong’ but this can further be delineated into explosive strength and endurance. There is a difference between muscle endurance and cardiovascular fitness. If your main objective is to maintain continued exertion, you need to be able to supply your muscles with a constant supply of andenosine triphosphate.
