How To Improve Stamina….

How To Improve Stamina.... I have searched through various methods of research suggested on the page prior to this and come up with a few methods to improve stamina...

A good way to use skipping would be to skip on the spot for 2 minutes counting how many jumps I manage to fit in I can the repeat the skipping a few times and hopefully if my stamina had improved I will be able to fit more jumps in 2 minutes and so again improved stamina! I can take jumps and heart rates to show this point! ...read more.
