Thinking about strength again

It seems that at least once every couple of months the question comes up as to how much strength is enough? I realize more and more that strength is totally contextual.

Bosch defines strength training as coordination training with resistance, that is not good enough. It is coordination training with appropriate resistance to develop strength you can use and strength you can transfer. It is essential to thoroughly understand the strength demands of the sport or activity you are developing the strength for. Develop those strength qualities in context. If you do this then your strength programs will look different. It may consist of traditional strength movements applied differently with the result a more positive transfer not more artificial numbers in the weight room.
