Somewhere between our teenage years and adulthood most of us have forgotten how to play. Our switch from just enjoying life to focusing on our career path and conforming to the standards society has imposed on us has beaten the play out of us.
It's a fact that activity is built into our genetic makeup. Nowadays we find every opportunity to avoid extra movement. We park as close to entrances as we can get. We take escalators instead of stairs. We sit for prolonged periods at work but the idea of adding some extra movement at the end of a long days sitting horrifies most of us.
Muscular endurance refers to a sustained given level of muscle force. It is important for standing or sitting for long periods. In endurance sports, it allows athletes to exercise at high intensities for long durations.
Muscular endurance depends on a combination of muscle strength and cellular endurance capacity.
In sports that require short bursts of explosiveness such as combat sports, the athelete must balance the ability to produce force rapidly with the ability to maintain the long-term energy demands of the contest.
Muscle endurance is best developed by many repetitions of an exercise, and practicing sports and activities that require considerable muscle endurance.
