Things You Should Know Thursday: Strong First

There are ten components to fitness: agility, flexibility, coordination, balance, power, cardiovascular, speed, stamina, accuracy and strength. "Strong First" argues that strength is most important and I agree. Do you?
You can be anything you want. A warrior. An athlete. A hard man or woman ready to handle whatever life throws at you. But you must be strong first.

“Strength is the foundation for development of the rest of physical qualities,” categorically stated Professor Leonid Matveev. It takes priority over all others: endurance, flexibility, etc.

Until one becomes “entry level strong”, e.g., a strict b...
odyweight military press for men or strict pullups for women, no priority other than strength can be justified for a healthy athlete. Science and experience have taught us that any athlete, even in ultra-endurance sports, who has not built a foundation of strength will fail to reach his or her potential.

Strength has been compared to a glass that can be filled with other qualities. The larger the glass, the more endurance, sport skill, fat loss, etc. can hold.

Be what you choose to be.

But be Strong First.
