You can readjust your body to boost one physical ability score at the expense of one or more other scores.
Select one ability score you would like to boost, and increase it by the same amount that you decrease
one or more other scores. All score decreases are treated as a special form of ability damage, called ability
burn, which cannot be magically or psionically healed—it goes away only through natural healing (see
page 67).

You can boost your Strength, Dexterity or Constitution score by an amount equal to your manifester level
(or any lesser amount), assuming you can afford to burn your other ability scores to such an extent.
When the duration of this power expires, your ability boost also ends, but your ability burn remains until it
is healed naturally. For example, a 12th-level manifester can boost his Strength score by as much as 12 points if he takes 12 points of ability burn to any of his other five scores. He might decide to split the points evenly between Charisma, Intelligence, and Wisdom, assigning 4 points of ability burn to each.
