Hi, this is Jason Morgan with Muscleworx Fitness in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Today, we're going to discuss proper plans to increase muscular endurance. A typical exercise routine to increase muscular endurance involves working with a lighter weight for a longer period of time or increased amount of repetitions being a longer period of time. We generally take shorter rest periods in between each exercise. Another concept is to work in a circuit fashion or combine a number of exercises into a giant set creating one huge exercise. An exercise such as a Dumbbells Superman which involves a squat, a squat thrust, a dumbbell curl, a shoulder press, all combined into a total body workout that can be achieved very quickly with a high number of repetitions to increase your cardiovascular as well as your muscular endurance. While you're doing a Dumbbell Superman, you want to make sure that you maintain your core stabilization. Hold your abs tight, shoulders back. Start by squatting down, holding the dumbbells by your side, placing them on the floor. Kick your feet back both at the same time into a squat thrust position. Go down into a push-up, completing a full push-up, bring your feet back forward, stand to the upright position, performing a dumbbell curl into an overhead shoulder press. Bring the dumbbells back down by your sides and repeat the motion. Please remember, these tips are just to provide basic information. Always consult with your health care provider and a fitness consultant before beginning any diet or exercise program.
