Strength Training

No matter what your sport is what fitness goal you are training for, strength training should be a part of your program. Strength training is not just for powerlifters and bodybuilders or general gym goers wanting to gain weight. Strength training is important for improving flexibility, speed and explosive power. It is the most effective method of increasing core strength and stability and, most importantly can help hugely with injury prevention.
