Any exercise that you do would be effective only when it is done for long enough. And to carry out an exercise for an extended duration, all that you need is, STAMINA. Stamina is different from strength; it actually is the combination of strength and energy that you need to perform heavy tasks.
What can one do to improve that stamina? Let’s find out -
Polymetrics: These are exercises where muscles exert maximum force in minimum possible time. Also known as the “jump training”, they help in improving the strength and speed of the muscles tissues. Various forms of polymetrics are squat jump, box jumps, depth jumps, lateral box jumps and tuck jumps. Choose the one that challenges you the most and see the results for yourself.
Push-Ups: Pushups are the best “ Do Anywhere” exercises. These are great in building stamina when done regularly and are easy to count. This makes it convenient for one to keep a track of the progress. Want to add fun to it? Try doing them on an incline.
Fusion Exercises: Multi-tasking the muscles improves their performance and endurance. Fusion or Hybridexercises are integrated movements combined with lifts to stimulate wholesome training experience. Some examples of hybrid exercises are squat to row, pull up to leg raise, Bulgarian split squat to press, Unilateral Romanian lift to reverse fly and pull to push.
Fast-paced Lifting: Weight lifting, when done at a slow pace, is known to improve strength. However, when the same is done at a faster and more intense pace, it triggers metabolism and improves stamina.
Bear Crawl: It involves propelling yourself on all four limbs, without letting the knees touch the ground. This exercise is good for anaerobic conditioning of the heart muscles and at the same time builds endurance in chest, triceps and shoulders. Variants of this extremely effective exercise are backward and sideways crawls.
To enhance stamina further, combine these exercises with a balanced diet rich in quality protein, adequate hydration, sound sleep and constructive lifestyle modifications.
