What Is Endurance?




The capacity to maintain the needed intensity for a particular sport or activity is called endurance fitness.

There are four basic kinds of endurance: aerobic, anaerobic, speed and strength. Aerobic endurance is built up through interval and constant running. While at work, the body is supplying the oxygen and energy needed to meet the necessary demands to perform an activity. Water and carbon dioxide are released through exhaling and sweating. When a person’s body needs to use stored energy because the need for oxygen and energy is lacking, the body is building up anaerobic endurance.

During anaerobic activities, the muscles are deprived of oxygen and go into “oxygen debt”. At this point, the body begins to build up lactic acid in the muscles. When the lactic acid is eliminated and the “oxygen debt is replaced, then the body can continue its physical activity.

Below are some great articles I gathered from solid sources regarding  endurance fitness.

Another benefit of endurance training is building and maintaining muscle power. Muscle power is the amount of force and the speed a muscle can perform an activity. As we age, we lose muscle power. With endurance fitness, we can retain muscle strength and balance. In addition, endurance fitness improves balance and coordination which helps reduce the chance of injuries.

Endurance fitness improves your metabolism and cardiorespiratory system, decreases stress, reduces the risk of disease, builds strength and helps keep the mind sharp.
