strength (the ability to work for a sustained period without fatigue) 
and, in singing, “balanced tension”.

(how to pedal, steer, etc.) you are then ready to take off your training wheels.  
As muscle strength increases, you are able to ride for longer periods of time.  
You then discover what “balanced tension” feels like.  

In singing, this translates to the appropriate amount of air pressure 
to make the vocal folds phonate (vibrate).
