Unconventional ways to get stronger? Ideas?
Any form of repetitive resistance workout will make you stronger and you can try something like pushups or pull-ups. In addition, something like Capoeira fitness can also make you strong and fit.
Dancing. Especially stuff where you move your arms around a lot, and if you keep tension in them it adds even more muscle
Ballet!!! Makes you very strong, flexible and confident in front of people. So stronger in many ways :)
always tote a backpack w/40-50 lbs in it..
Go to the gym, have someone spot you and go as heavy as you can. Push yourself with the assistance of your partner. Do 5 sets of 5 reps. Bench press, squat, pull ups, close grip bench press, and deadlifts.
