What is the best way to train strength?

1. Practice strength.
2. Trainer with 99 strength.
3. Trainer with 90 strength and teaching skill.
4. Army barracks facility -free
5. Boxing ring - 100$
6. Something else?

I couldn't find any explanation on how this work, and I hate stumbling blind through the game. Also I am using UC1.13, its probably doesn't matter (at least for 1-3 and mods with same facilities), still its worth mentioning.

As far as I know carrying extra weight helps as well.

And I remember in AIMNAS carrying a squad with extra shotguns and hornet's nest ammo (dealing stamina damage) to ambush small sized patrols in order to train weak mercs like shank... I'd shoot them unconscious, they would lose all AP's from suppression and lack of stamina and Shank would just walk and punch them raising DEX and STR devil

EDIT: Aaaand having another merc carry for your weaker merc a pry bar or anything that can be used as crowbar to force open doors/crates/lockers.

Indeed. Playing with partial item drop, I have made a particularly good use of the melee "grind" when stealing items.

The problem is that I need to train about 6 mercs to gain 10-20 points increase, so I am looking for something more robust I can use in bulk with time compression. So I need to figure out which method gives me the best bang for my time\buck.

Running with lots of stuff (I think more than 50% carry weight) in sector view increases strength (and health).

I'm not sure but I think it works better during turn-based mode with enemy present (I tend to keep last "camping" enemy spotted while most of my mercenaries run around, clean shelves and lockers etc.).

Before the change to sandbags I used to fill them up and place several in a backpack to get the merc to ~400% load. Then I made him run until he was almost exhausted, dropped the backpack to make him recover, pick it up again and then rinse and repeat.

Load the mercs over 150% and pass from tactical to strategic screen. Then send them on long trip on the map (paying attention not to pass through town sectors) and cancel the trip. You gain strength and health. This is the fastest way.

This trick doesn't work anymore. It was removed almost three years ago in revision 5760.
