Tip #1: Embrace the Hype

Embrace the hype surrounding endurance strength training being excellent for athletes and learn to incorporate it into your workout.

Tip #2: Warm up Properly

As always when exercising, a proper warmup and decent stretching is important to prevent injuries, but also to increase your flexibility and joint health.

Tip #3:  More Reps for Endurance

Strength and endurance can be developed by performing the highest number of repetitions of an exercise using a weight that represents approximately 40 percent to 65 percent of your maximum weight threshold.

Tip #4: Shorter Rest Periods

Shorter rest periods also help to increase your endurance while weight training. For example, lifting a heavier weight for say 2 to 4 repetitions, but only resting for 30 seconds, as opposed to lifting a lighter weight for 8 to 12 repetitions and resting for 60 seconds or more.

Tip #5: Monitor Your Progress

Start by recording the amount of weight and amount of reps you can perform for a certain exercise, and be sure to monitor your progress, noting any increases and also your body’s energy levels.

Tip #6: Don’t Over-Train

It’s important to keep your goals in mind, and plan your exercise routine accordingly.
