Muscular endurance refers to the ability of a given muscle to exert force, consistently and repetitively, over a period of time. Endurance exercise is one of the four types of exercise along with strength, balance and flexibility. Also called aerobic exercise, endurance exercises includes activities that increase your breathing and heart rate such as walking, jogging, swimming, biking and jumping rope. But you don’t need to train for a marathon to improve your muscular endurance. Building muscular endurance can increase whole-body strength, improve your posture, and reduce your risk of injuries.
Although progressive overload is usually used in strength training, the same idea can be applied to any type of exercise, including cardiovascular endurance exercises like running. This workout plan strengthens your muscles, increases your cardiovascular fitness and burns up fat stores while at the same time sharpening motor skills and agility.
