How do you define "strength"?
Is strength a scientific term?
What do you think about this definition?
"A more appropriate definition of strength might be the following. The strength of a muscle or homogeneous muscle group (i.e., a group of muscles that have neighboring attachments sites, share a functional role, and act simultaneously) is the magnitude of the variable force that this contractile entity exerts on the skeletal system at the attachment site of interest. Strength is therefore defined as a localized scalar variable that may change with time at any particular attachment site, and is not associated solely with one particular state of muscle activity (e.g., rest, isometric contraction, isokinetic concentric contraction). Hence there are as many different ways a contractile entity to exert force or exhibit strength as there are different exercise environments."

Wow! That's a lot to take. Very wordy and nerdy of them but true all the most when it comes to the definition of strength. Basically, strength is defined how well a muscle contracts depending on how it's being challenged or should we say, by the force being applied to it.
Lots of variables here to consider when it comes to this but what happens when there is minimal strength?
How does the body respond if something isn't working the way it should?
How do you know how well your overall muscle system is contracting?
Do you have movements or positions you're avoiding because there's pain or unwanted sensations?
