Exercise To Improve Endurance

We all know the importance of exercise. Exercise plays a very important role to keep us

physically fit and keep our muscles strong. Strong muscles are very important as our day to day

activities and sports activities require strong muscles.

To enjoy leisure time with family and to enjoy long rides and skiing with friends one needs

muscular endurance to carry through.

One must focus on improving muscular endurance. To increase strength you need to train your

body to improve your endurance as well. Many believe Endurance and Stamina are the same

but it is not true.

According to the Oxford Dictionary “the process to maintain a high level of physical or mental

action for a longer period is termed as stamina.”

Endurance is “the ability to perform a painful or difficult task for a longer period of time without

any complaint.”

Muscular Endurance: What is it?

Muscular Endurance is the ability of a muscle to exert force constantly and repeatedly over

some time without any complaint.

Muscular endurance plays a very important role in every athlete's life. But it does not mean that

only athletes need endurance, even common people also need muscular endurance to combat

their day-to-day activities.

Importance Of Muscular Endurance

In 2014, a study found that high levels of muscular strength and endurance decrease the risk of

a heart attack. High muscular endurance reduces the level of triglycerides, and serum blood

sugar, and also reduces blood pressure. In 2017, a clinical study proved that low muscular

endurance increases the risk of musculoskeletal injuries.

As it is important to maintain muscular strength not only to perform any activity but to stay


What Are The Best Ways To Improve Muscular Endurance?

It is very important to increase muscular endurance. There are several ways to improve

ways to increase muscular endurance.


Plank is not only the best way to lose belly fat but it is one of the most effective ways to
