How can I train for muscular strength?

As we know the muscle does its job by flexion and extension. So what you need to do is:

  1. Design a strength program:  To have a healthy strong body you should train every part of the body and most importantly equally. Many people like to divide their workout as what they want to achieve. Some like to divide it into front and back of the body for example chest and back, others like big muscle and small muscle, but personally I prefer upper and lower body were my whole body get the benefit each day.
  2. Your program should be set on the idea of lifting heavier weight for less reps. For example we going to do 10, 12, and 15 reps of 10, 12, and 15 lb. Each rep we going put stress on the muscle which it help us to  earn muscle and bone density.
  3. Technique is important because it prevent injuries. If it doesn’t feel right than don’t do it, and ask someone who have enough knowledge about it.

Finally, keep in mind to always warm up before you workout, and cool down after you finish your workout. Starching is a key to make you feel less pain next day.
