How To Improve Stamina….

Extracts from this document...


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... Running I have discovered that running various lengths will in the long run improve my stamina. If I gradually build up the lengths that I run not only improve my stamina but also prove that I have, as I am able to run longer distances quicker! For instance if on my 1st training session I may run 100 m 5 time each time trying harder and harder then I can take the time it took me on the 1st run and compare it to the time it took me on the fifth run and hopefully my time will have increased. ...read more.


I can also then go back and run the 100m after I have completed the 500m and see weather or not the time has improved from the last 100m I did.

I could also do various lengths one after the other (when I have regained resting pulse rate) and record times and pulse rates after each run the repeat the process and compare the times and pulse rates and if they have improved I have gained more stamina therefore succeeding in my task! ...read more.


tennis and then play it every night for around half an hour. I should find that I am able to play for longer without tiring in the end and therefore I have improved my stamina! Skipping Skipping is a good method of improving stamina as it involves a lot of tiresome work. 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.
