It’s important to remember that strength training is not just relevant when you pick up an injury but also one of the best ways to reduce your injury risk!!

Not to mention strength training is also a vital tool for health and well being, and in this blog we will outline why.



Strength Training is defined as a method of exercising muscles using an opposing force, whether that is external weights or against gravity, in order to increase the strength of the muscle.

Strength training is a very broad term, and encompasses a range of different techniques/methods, all to produce changes in our muscles. These changes are very individual, based on the method of training used.

Choosing a certain method usually depends on the individual persons goals or needs. 

Many different training methods can be used to produce changes in the muscle. Max strength training, muscular endurance training, explosive power training, HIIT training, hypertrophy training are all used in training muscle, to name just a few methods.

Strength training can be used to increase strength, improve the speed of movement, increase the size of the muscle (hypertrophy), increase the muscle’s ability to repeatedly perform tasks (endurance), or even increase general flexibility and mobility.
