I agree with Jay and Mike...I started out looking to lose weight and get bigger muscles....then, I also liked the feeling when I lifted heavy (for me anyway) weights, I have since taken a "get stronger" approach. The fact that I am still getting bigger muscles is a pleaseant side effect!!!
I will say more people comment on my increased muscle size than do about how much stronger I am.
I am now leaning to try to find the best combo of both strength and size....not only do I want to look like I can pick up a fridge, I want to be able to do it!
Now, that being said, strength gains will ALWAYS be my top priority!
