MUSCULAR FITNESS

Muscular fitness has two components: muscular strength and muscular endurance.

Muscular strength is the greatest amount of force a muscle or muscle group can exert in a single effort.

Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle or muscle group to do repeated contractions against a less-than-maximum resistance for a given time.

Although muscular endurance and strength are separate fitness components, they are closely related. Progressively working against resistance will produce gains in both of these components.
