Also the connective tissue strength built with strength training (especially with bodyweight) degrades much more slowly than muscular size. This makes sense, since it takes longer to build connective tissue up in the first place. The great thing about that is that having strong connective tissue will be invaluable as you get old. While your contemporaries break a bone when they fall, you will be more likely to catch yourself and sustain the impact (actually, if you become skillful with hand balancing, you will be far less likely to fall in the first place).
