improve your stamina


In this article we discuss effective strategies to boost stamina and endurance. 

Stamina is the physical or mental energy required to complete strenuous activities.

Are you tired of lacking stamina or do you fear that you will lose it in your later years? Are you looking for effective ways to improve your stamina? You’re not alone.

Participating in regular exercise and fitness activities builds stamina, strength and improves overall longevity. As our body becomes more efficient, exercise and everyday activities not only become easier, they become more enjoyable

How to Use Exercise as an Effective Strategy to Boost Stamina

Regular exercise engages something called overload. In fact, challenging and overloading our body helps us adapt and improve our physical functionality and increases the efficiency of our body systems. This creates more stamina, that helps our body perform longer and better.

Exercise doesn’t always need to be boring and strenuous. What is more, activities such as playing tennis or working in the garden, dancing, golfing, swimming, carrying heavy shopping, or playing with energetic children will help improve your body’s physical stamina, so will functional fitness programs.

3 Top Tips to Improve and Boost Your Stamina and Endurance

Essentially, if you don’t use it, you will lose it. So here are my top tips for improving your stamina.

1. Do Hybrid and/or Compound Exercises


Doing an exercise that works several muscles and not just one muscle, is a compound exercise. Doing an upper body movement whilst simultaneously performing a lower body movement, is a hybrid exercise.

Including these in your workout will help improve the stamina of your whole body, instead of just particular parts.

2. Vary Your Workouts

Only doing aerobic exercises such as cycling or swimming are great for your cardiovascular system, but they will leave you deficient in other areas such as strength and balance.

Combining various forms of exercise (functional fitness programs and aerobic exercise) will challenge your body in several areas of fitness. Those areas include strength, balance, aerobic fitness, flexibility and coordination, and  boost stamina and endurance.

3. Always Challenge Yourself

Doing the same exercise over and over with the same weight, duration, and rest time will limit your progression. By experimenting with the weight, duration and rest time you will always be challenging your body, allowing it to adapt and improve. At Active & Ageless we are continually challenging our members and their results do not plateau. Changing programs and implementing new exercises also helps to stimulate our brain increasing our overall ability to adapt to new situations. Challenging the body whilst keeping the mind sharp by changing the exercise routines is on of the many way to healthy ageing and longevity.
