Intro to Muscular Strength
How strong you are (and how strong you could be) depends on the performance of your body’sskeletal muscles.
Your body’s muscles are highly adaptable. They will react to the stresses that you place upon them.
- Sit on the couch and they will atrophy.
- Try and run fast and they adapt to produce faster contractions.
- Lift heavy objects and they will increase their ability to produce maximum strength.
Muscular Strength can and has been categorized in a variety of different ways. In this article, I am choosing to divide Muscular Strength into four categories, based primarily on Newton’s Second Law.
