What is muscular endurance?
Muscular endurance refers to how long muscles can sustain an exercise. Building muscular endurance can be done with weights or bodyweight only, and it’s important for overall health and injury prevention. Not all is about strength, right?
Building muscular endurance will enhance your overall health and wellness. But that’s not it as other benefits include good posture from your muscles being able to hold you up in place all day, increased metabolism, improved confidence, and fewer injuries. How great is it?
