What is an aspect of caring for our bodies which is often overlooked? This is one of the
first questions I took into consideration when thinking about health and fitness, and the
conclusion I ironically came to was strength training. The reason this is ironic is because, to
some this might seem like an obvious part of fitness when it comes to trying to improve a
person’s body overall, but what I quickly discover through research is that strength training is
often overlooked. This is not the only reason I chose to research strength training, and I would
like to discuss the other reasons, as well as, just what strength training is about, how it does or
does not help our bodies, …show more content…
What I really wanted
was something which was not necessarily the obvious option, I wanted to discover a new
perspective in the process of my research. So, when I stumbled upon the subject of strength
training I was instantly intrigued, from what I saw this subject provided me with the chance to

that while, yes, God does want us to physically train our bodies, and He wants our main focus to
be on our walk with Him.
To conclude, there are many fascinating facts and points which should not be ignored
when studying strength training. After all, just because at first glance it may just seem like just
another exercise to add to someone’s regular routine, the fact is there are many different
interesting aspects to strength training. Even the concept of how this exercise works is
interesting, let alone the many benefits it can provide. What is almost even more interesting is
that though some people may think there is not much in the Bible on this subject the truth is there
are verses which take on whole new meanings when taking this concept into consideration.
However, no matter which aspect of strength training someone takes into consideration I feel he
or she will find many interesting and beneficial pieces of
