Click here to read the introduction: How to Increase your Stamina
With consistency in your exercise routine you will find your stamina levels increasing. Remember that moderate exercises are the key to building stamina. Do not accelerate too rapidly as muscles need to get accustomed to the new activity. As you find yourself recovering faster from your regular routine, you are reducing tiredness. This is the sign that you’re increasing your stamina. A simple test is this, while running, you should not be too short of breath to hold a conversation.
When you train hard one day, train lightly the next day, the importance of consistency cannot be overemphasized. After about two weeks of regular exercising, you will see improvements.
List your Achievements
Your success should spur you on to reach for greater heights. You will experience the benefits of greater flexibility, higher levels of energy output at work and home, additional strength, endurance, gain muscle as you burn off fat, weight loss and increased lung capacity.
Set New Parameters
As you set new standards to improve your stamina, remember that self discipline and patience is the key to success. The mistake that most athletes commit is that they stick to a one dimensional sports specific training schedule and thereby fail to develop a well-balanced fitness regime.
Add on another activity to your routine. A word of caution, know your limitations and work with them, not against them. Any single sport will result in a single sport injury, as you are targeting the same set of muscles day in and day out. Therefore cross train.
Vary Fitness Routine
Combine aerobic conditioning with strength building exercises at a gym. To add speed to this, follow patterns of sprinting, walking and jogging. The combination of combined strength exercises with endurance and speed enables your muscles to use energy more efficiently and burn extra calories, and reduce body fat. Professional advice or coaching in all the above areas is necessary. A good aerobic as well as gym instructor along with the appropriate gear could save you plenty of grief. Performing an exercise wrongly could lead to serious injury. Remember that warm up, stretching and cool down exercises are an essential part of injury prevention and improved agility.

Aerobic fitness improves your cardiovascular health and reduces the risk of coronary artery disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
