  • Strength
    • Strength is the maximum force that a muscle/group of muscles can exert in a single movement/contraction/against a resistance.
    • How to measure strength.
    • I held a grip dynamometer in my hand/arm by my side and squeezed the handle as hard as I could
    • weight training exercise you could use to improve strength.
      • Bench press
        • initial level of intensity
          • I lifed 70% of my one rep max 6 times.
        • Why would you progressively overload this exercise?
          • So my level of strength will increase.
            • When?
              • After 4 weeks / When I felt it was easier to lift the weight.
                • How?
                  • I increased the number of reps from 6 to 7
