4 Easy Ways to Increase Your Endurance

Are you unhappy with how much endurance you have?

Do you keep getting winded while hiking, biking, jogging, or exercising?

Want to change that?

Endurance building, like fat loss and muscle building, is an important part of everyday fitness and the benefits are numerous. If you’re looking for quick ways to increase your endurance capacity, try these 4 easy ways.

  1. Go for Broke

Failure sets are a very effective way of increasing your muscular endurance. Even if you are already utilizing higher repetition ranges, using failure sets can push your endurance threshold even further. The idea is to perform as many repetitions as possible with perfect form until the muscle quits from exhaustion. You can utilize this technique for every set in an exercise or reserve it until the end.

  1. Try Sprinting

Even if you’re not a runner, sprinting can be very useful for increasing your endurance levels. Sprinting involves performing at maximum effort for a pre-determined amount of time. It’s not just running a little faster; it means running as fast as you possibly can for that determined amount of time. The most common amount of time for sprints is between 15 and 45 seconds, with the latter being for the advanced fitness population. You can start by incorporating three sets of 15 second sprints at the end of your workouts.

  1. Use H.I.I.T. Workouts

High Intensity Interval Training workouts are always a good idea, regardless of your fitness goals. They burn more fat, build more muscle, and can give a serious boost to your endurance levels. H.I.I.T. involves performing a set list of exercises in succession. Before moving on to the next exercise; however, you must complete all repetitions at maximum effort. Here is an example H.I.I.T. workout you can use.

  • Bodyweight Squats: 25
  • Lunges: 15
  • Push-ups: 10
  • Pull-ups: 15
  • Mountain Climbers: 30
  • Spiderman Planks: 10
  • Burpees: 5

So before moving on to lunges, you must complete all 25 bodyweight squats at maximum effort. Do not rest in between exercises. Once you finish the list, then you can take a two to three minute break, and begin again.

  1. Wear a Sauna Suit

If you want a scientifically proven way to boost your endurance and extend your total fatigue time, then you need to start wearing a Kutting Weight sauna suit. Working out in a neoprene sauna suit does more than increase fat loss and muscle building. It’s also been shown in a ground breaking study from Dr. Lance Dalleck to enhance your endurance levels.

Subjects wearing the Kutting Weight neoprene sauna suit extended their total fatigue time up to 61.7%. Imagine what you’ll be able to do with 61.7% more endurance during workouts, long runs, or athletic events.
