In todays world strength to us is a lifting weights in the gym. A young male or female belonging to the 300lbs club, is considered strong. But I have to come to realize real (functional) strength is about speed agility and overall power, that gym strength lacks. Coming back from a missionary trip in Thailand I have have seen what real strength is. Strength is lifting countless bails of hay, rocks, and sprinting after chickens and buffalo's. Strength you can use in the real world, in mutliple ways and you have the endurance to do it for hours on end. Not just lifting bar bells and placing them back down. How do you measure what strength is?
