Strength training is a specific form of resistance training, i.e. weight lifting, or bodyweight workouts. The object is to build strength. This can be done without adding mass if you so choose. It’s the ideal solution for those in a specific weight controlled sport say full contact martial arts, horse riding, gymnastics, wrestling and more. It’s also an excellent alternative for golfers, dancers or woman who want a firm toned look, without the bulk of muscle. 

Traditionally training involves lifting medium weights within 8-10 repetitions. This is the subtle difference between strength training and power lifting. Power lifters work with very heavy weights within a 1-2 rep range. They are often huge.
