The Benefits of Endurance Training

Endurance training refers to exercise programs designed to gradually build your ability to perform high-intensity physical activities or sports without tiring as quickly. Endurance exercises also strengthen muscles so they're better capable of performing an array of physical activities and sports.

Distance running is the classic example of endurance training, from 800 meters up to marathons and ultramarathons. Not only marathon runners and pro cyclists benefit from endurance training - any sport that demands cardiovascular endurance such as competitive swimming, rowing and cross-country skiing reap its rewards as well. Endurance training may even be mandatory in racket sports like tennis, rugby and cricket!

endurance training can improve metabolic health by strengthening the heart and lungs. Studies have linked moderate levels of endurance training with reduced cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood pressure levels as well as improvements to lung function as well as reduced risks for chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

endurance training should be undertaken within your body's current capacity for recovery and repair, meaning you should avoid exercising so hard that it puts too much strain on the body, leading to fatigue, loss of appetite or other symptoms. Furthermore, eating foods rich in anti-oxidants may assist your recovery by eliminating free radicals produced during intense activity and helping detox your system of waste products that accumulate during endurance workouts.
