Component of fitness 4 _ Strength

Strength is the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to exert a maximum force in order to overcome a resistance.

An example is the ability to turn the pedals when climbing a steep hill. Strength in this instance is not concerned with how quickly the pedals turn, just that they are able to turn for a short period of time.

A good analogy is of a competitor in a strongest man competition where a competitor may have to move a very heavy item a short distance, they may do this quite slowly, but are exerting a lot of force. In short: if you lift weights, your muscles will get stronger!
