The definition of muscular endurance is your body’s ability to contract a muscle repeatedly whilst under load. Examples of this would be walking up a long flight of steps, or cycling for an extended period of time.
Muscular endurance is also the type of training that will create muscle tone. This is because it will not increase the size of your muscles, but will enhance their shape.
Muscular endurance can be trained in a number of ways. Firstly you could partake in cardiovascular exercise, such as running, cycling or swimming. This has the advantage of improving your heart and lungs as well as your muscle tone. Alternatively you could use resistance training. To do this you would do muscular exercises using low weight, or just your body weight. This would increase the number of repetitions you are able to do, meaning that your muscular endurance will improve.
