The 10 Components of Fitness: 3 ) Musculoskeletal Strength

The 10 Components of Fitness: 3 ) Musculoskeletal Strength
3 ) Musculoskeletal Strength: The combined strength of muscles,bones,ligaments and tendons.

Musculoskeletal strength: Lack of this component leads to early degeneration of the body. Lack of musculoskeletal strength also exposes the body to a high risk of injuries while performing any task against resistance. It must therefore be noted that athletes belonging to any sport or discipline needs to work on his musculoskeletal strength otherwise he cannot be successful and risks injuring himself.

When this component is compromised, activities that require cardiovascular and muscular endurance is not possible as the body will not be able to handle the stress associated with that activity. For example,the body of a marathon runner, cannot handle the stress on his/her joints due to poor musculoskeletal strength even though he has a good amount of endurance.
