How Is your muscular endurance these days?
Strong muscles help control your weight and maintain good overall health. For muscles to work well, they need to contract and relax fully while exercising.
Fuller contractions allow more fluid motion – particular during aerobic activities – and are less likely to strain joints and tendons. To sustain strong contractions, you need good muscular endurance. You can build up your endurance by weight training at a level where you can comfortably complete 12 to 15 repetitions. Use a full range of motion, pausing slightly at the top and bottom of each exercise. Controlled, precise movements encourage muscles to perform efficiently. You will see results if you follow a safe, well-thought-out weight training program.
