Exercises That Increase Strength and Stamina

We exercise for many reasons. Some of us exercise to lose weight, others to build bigger muscles, and some to improve our overall health. Whatever the reason, there is no denying that exercise is great for the body and mind. A great reason to fit in a great workout is to increase both your strength and your stamina. Both of these help to improve the overall state of your health. Take a look at these great exercises that can help you build strength and increase stamina for better health and wellness.


There is no denying that running is a great workout. Anyone that has ever tried it knows that it is tough. Running works the muscles, increases lung capacity, and improves overall health. If you want to build stamina, running is a great way to do it. If you don’t already run, start slow. You will likely be very sore and it will be a serious challenge. The slower and easier you are with the start, the more likely it is going to stick.

Lift AND Run

Though you hopefully already do both lifting and cardio, this tip means that you should do them both on the same day. And, it doesn’t have to be running. You can choose any sort of cardio. The verdict is out on which you should do first. Arguments for both are quite convincing, so do what you feel is best. This will push your muscles when you lift and then boost your endurance when you perform the cardio. Combining both is a fast track way to improve your overall body strength and health.

High Intensity Interval Training

These workouts, shortened to HIIT, are one of the best ways to increase both strength and stamina. This consists of bursts of exercise followed by short rest periods. This pushes the body even harder, as it has less time to recover before challenging it all over again. In the fitness community, this is arguably one of the best ways to get in phenomenal shape.

When you want to push your body further and get in the best shape of your life, give these suggestions a try. These are some of the best ways to increase strength and stamina in the shortest amount of time. And, with a stronger body and better endurance, you can enjoy all of the other parts of life more easily and efficiently for far into the future.
