goal: gain strength

Strength training is an excellent way to increase your health and fitness. Proper training increases bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength and toughness. Additional benefits include improved joint function, reduced potential for injury, increased bone density, enhanced cardiac function and elevated HDL (good) cholesterol.
