by Mikayla on March 6, 2015

foods-to-increase-staminaYour body is similar to a car engine, in the sense that it needs to be fueled properly if you want it to workout hard, run great lengths at great speeds and overall improve your fitness and athletic performance.

staminaStamina is defined as the physical or mental capability to perform something at the highest level for prolonged periods of time. Stamina is considered to be one of the most vital components in health and fitness.

Stamina comes in two forms, physical and mental.

Your physical stamina measures the ability of your heart and lung muscles to function efficiently and supply the needed amounts of oxygenated blood during long and intense periods of physical activity.

On the other hand, your mental stamina defines the ability of your mind to push through difficult circumstances and think clearly for a very long time without fatigue.
