26 July 2016 - Strength Training for Endurance
Strength training and endurance training are often
separated, with people focusing on muscle growth or cardio almost exclusively
in order to meet established fitness goals. While specialised training routines
can have their benefits, this entire way of thinking is being questioned as
people look for more sustainable and balanced fitness programs. Science has
proven time and time again that strength training has a positive effect on
endurance performance, with cardio training found to be much more effective when
combined with resistance and weights routines.

training, has become a huge global trend in 2016. While this buzz word has been
trending in the fitness industry for some time now, it continues to get
attention as people look for new ways to live better and healthier lives. Instead
of focusing on traditional strength training or exhausting cardio routines,
functional fitness helps people to improve their strength, co-ordination, and
balance through challenging movement routines and environmental stimulation.
