Strength is the most important motor ability in sports as it is a direct product of muscle contraction. We can define strength as “Ability to overcome resistance” and this resistance is of four types :
(i) own body resistance, e.g., 100 m race, jumping.
(ii) resistance of implement, e.g., throwing events like shot, javelin and discus.
(iii) resistance of opponent, e.g., wrestling, boxing, judo, etc.
(iv) frictional resistance, e.g., cycling, swimming.
