Strength is the opposite of weakness, therefore it is inherently an injury reduction venture. Strength done improperly is like a compass off by two degrees - it is fine at the start, but give it a few years and you are thousands of miles off. When I say "assured injury reduction" - I mean when you are choosing strength, not hunting PBs like mad, with no respect for your body. As much as some might want me to "back these claims up with evidence" - some things are simply truisms, obvious truths. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ There is no need for us to throw our researcher hats on, and hunt abstracts and conclusions to know these points. It is applicable to all people, as we all get injuries, we all have lives, we all have a physiology. We all either get stronger, or we get weaker. There is no limbo. If you are neutral about strength, you're probably getting weaker.
