### I don't want to get big arms or bulky I want to stay the way I am which is just skinny and I just want to tone my arms should I stay off the protein shake I am 8 and a half stone 5ft 8 and 17?

You do not need to stay off protein shakes. If you want to get bulky, you do fewer repetitions, but keep increasing the amount of weight you lift each time. If you want to simply increase your strength, you do more repetitions without increasing the amount of weight. Normally a weight lifter will do six to 10 repetitions. When it becomes possible to do 3 sets of 11, he or she increases the amount of weight. If you want to simply increase your strength, you might do 3 sets of 50. You are not after muscle mass or a muscular body but strength.

### How does the intensity apply to muscular strength and muscular endurance training?

In general, the higher the intensity, the lower the duration. So, if you are training to increase muscular strength, it is often best to use between 1 and 5 reps per set. If you are training to increase muscular endurance, increase the duration of each set by increasing the time under tension. You can do this by doing each rep more slowly, by doing more reps, or both. .

### What is muscle endurance and muscle strength?

Muscle strength is the ability to exert force on an object or through movement with the muscles. The ability to build muscular strength is largely due to genetics but age, sex, work ethic, and overall health have an impact as well. The main way to determine someone's muscular strength is through the use of an one repetition exercise at maximum weight. Take note that limb length can play a part in strength. For instance, someone with shorter arms will have an easier time bench pressing than someone with longer arms.Muscle endurance is the ability to exert a force repetitively or over an extended period of time. Training for endurance can have a negative impact on muscle strength unless some sort of resistance training is also included. To increase endurance one may increase the amount of repetitions or increase the amount of time of the exercise. A dramatic jump in repetitions can have more of an impact on strength rather than endurance and can increase chance of injury. Every jump in time spent training should be low enough to allow the body to adjust.
