GURPS could use a book on physical training, physical fitness, and raising physical stats. I deliberately kept that topic brief in Back to School, because I'm far too ignorant of the whole subject to write a detailed treatment of it, and I didn't want to pre-empt the field for someone better informed, or give them bad rules that they would have to revise or explain away. However, Back to School does provide several brief suggestions on the topic, including the GM simply awarding 5 points toward a specific physical stat after six months of sustained training in physical skills.
