What does it mean to be physically strong?

What does it mean to be physically strong in relationship to being emotionally and psychologically strong? have any personal experiences?

just a little note:

My thought is that strength can be attained emotionally, psychologically and physically.
I feel that once you have become completely aware of your emotions, you are then able to manage your psyche in a similar way as well as your physical being, and thus will become the embodiment of strength.

Strength in any relationship, to me, means hiding your own fears as much as you can because it comforts the other when they’re trying to hide theirs.

@hiiipower, To be physically strong you have to be able to lift heavy things.

To be psychologically/emotionally strong, you have to be in control of yourself, to be able to not let your emotions/thoughts run away with you.

I am phsically strong in the way that I am aware of how my body works and how I can get most out of it.
I do not train my muscle tissue lifting weights, but I use leverage to lift and move objects in the way that I harm my body least possible.
Use your body smart, the same applies to the latter.

@hiiipower, I agree, being physically strong means that you are able to lift heavy things or do more strenuous work but it ALL connects to each other deeply. You are not going to feel physically strong or be able to use you muscle to its furthest degree with you are psychologically or emotionally compromised and having strength in all areas makes you stronger in each area. To know yourself, you have to know every aspect of what makes you. When you do things “right” then you will be stronger in the long run.
Personal experience, hell yeah, everyday of my life I feel and am effected by my mindset and physical being. When I workout or longboard I have to have and understanding of every aspect because if I don’t then its a waste and I learn something new about myself nearly every time! I think that is why people who do martial arts, let’s take Bruce Lee for example, are able to derive so much spiritually and philosophically then just “moves learned”, like a bot.

STRENGTH, physical, emotional, or otherwise, has a lot more to do with balance than anything else. Lifting heavy things doesn’t have much to do with it. BALANCE is important in the body and has a close relationship to your physical consciousness (kinesthesia).

A person who can’t lift heavy weights, but can climb over a 20,000 ft tall mountain, would still be considered strong by most people. Olympic style weightlifting is a good example because you don’t have to be super “strong” to do the lifts, you just have to be good at doing the exercise properly, maintaining your balance and mechanical advantage.

Balance not just referring to your center of gravity, but also balanced muscular development. A balanced body is less susceptible to injury, which could also be a measure of strength. Durability.
