"Physical strength is the most important thing in life. This is true whether we want it to be or not." -Mark Rippetoe
Strength is the hardest physical attribute to develop, but it is arguably the most important for us to focus on. It confers a plethora of adaptive advantages for all ages, and it can be trained safely and systematically. Having strength helps in all aspects of sport and everyday life. It helps us to better manage pain and avoid illness. It provides a kind of confidence that is difficult to express in words.
