How to Increase Stamina

It is not a new thing for people looking to increasing their stamina and endurance capability. They spend money, join a gym and even purchase weight gaining products like protein, but nothing works out the way they have wanted. Stamina gives you the power to undergo the rigorous training and endurance is there to endeavor the struggle for longer durations. Here is a list of activities that will help you improve your stamina level:

1. Running

Yes, the basic exercise to increase stamina significantly over a period of time is running. A little warm up jog before actually running is crucial and will be good for your muscles to remain stable while running. Run slowly but cover longer distances, do aerobic workouts, add sprints to your schedule and most importantly take shorter break intervals. After the workout, just cool down your body & stretch your muscles used.

2. Perform Workouts Daily

Watch out for these unprecedented holidays from your workouts or training schedule as it destroys your body flow and random exercise is not beneficial.

  • Combine strength exercises with your heavy muscular workouts.
  • Decrease the rest period in between the exercise sets.
  • Practice explosive, fast-paced and high-intensity exercises in short durations
  • Practice compound exercises that use more than one joint at a time like squats, push ups, pull ups and step ups.

3. Healthy Diets

Without the presence of high energy levels in our body, it cannot work around to increase stamina level. Essential nutrients like Vitamin C, proteins, iron and carbs such as cereals, brown bread, fruits, and vegetables are must for enhance the body capabilities and increase the stamina level.

4. Remain Hydrated

Drink plenty of water throughout the day and keep your body well hydrated. During your work out, the absence of water causes cells starts to shrink making your muscles to become stiff and may lead to cramps. So make your body heavily hydrated drink lots of homemade fruit juices. Take small sips (not drink) of water at regular intervals while working out. Replace your body fluids that are lost in form of sweats and remain hydrated.

5. Avoid Bad Habits

Don’t indulge in bad habits and go on destroying your body. These activities inhibit the functioning of lungs and reduce your endurance level sharply. That’s why trainers, experts or doctors advise staying away from such activities that deteriorate your body metabolism. If you are a sports person, it is must for you to not get involved in such activities like taking drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes.

6. Have a healthy Sleep

Just like working out is necessary for improving the stamina level, getting good hours of sleep is also necessary too. It makes your body and brain synced and hence can produce optimum results. Your body requires REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep to properly rest after a heavy workout. 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep is enough to provide you with the vigour for the next day and restore the energy levels.
