Creating Strength

Strength is created when you encounter heavy resistance, push the barriers of your comfort zone, but stop short of injury. That's part one. Part two involves resting, and healing, and the third part of the equation is growing.

Many strength trainees and bodybuilders don't realize that healing and growing are 2 different things. A muscle needs to recover before it can grow. A broken bone can't get stronger until it mends back together and heals. I don't mean to harp on it, but it is an important concept. If you truly get it, it can change everything.
