Strength training falls under three different areas:

Weight training: Weight and resistance training are popular methods of strength training, which use gravity and weights or hydraulic resistance to oppose muscle contraction.

Resistance training: A form of strength training in which each effort is performed against a specific opposing force generated by resistance from pushing, bending, squeezing or stretching. Exercises are isotonic if a body part is moving against the force.

Isometric training: Isometric exercise, or "isometrics," is a type of strength training in which the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction. Isometric exercises means a body part is holding still against the force.
