Muscular endurance versus muscular strength
While muscular endurance is all about how long a muscle can perform, muscular strength is how hard it can perform.
If you’re ever confused about whether you’re working on strength or endurance, think about the amount of weight you’re lifting and how many reps you’re performing, as the relationship is inversely related. Going for lighter weights and a bunch of reps (somewhere in the 15 to 20 range)? That’s endurance. Lifting heavier weight and only a few reps (around 5 to 8)? That’s strength.
Prolonged activities performed against any type of resistance (be it gravity, ground, water, snow, or ice) depend on mainly muscular endurance. These activities include rowing; swimming events longer than 100 meters; kayaking and canoeing; cross-country skiing; and certain elements of team, combat, and racket sports.
Most sports require either power (e.g., for jumps and throws in track and field), power endurance (e.g., for sprints in track and field), muscular endurance (e.g., for 800- to 1,500-meter swimming), or all three (e.g., for rowing, canoeing, wrestling, combat sports, martial arts, and some team sports).
Specificity and the Dominant Energy System
You should carefully consider the dominant energy system in the chosen sport. For instance, muscular endurance training is most appropriate for endurance sports such as rowing, long-distance swimming, canoeing, and speedskating. It is crucial to consider the specific muscle groups involved (the prime movers) and the movement patterns characteristic of the sport. Exercises should use the sport’s key movement patterns. They must also improve the power of the prime movers. Normally, gains in power transfer to skill improvement.
Muscular endurance versus training volume
Volume, or the quantity of work performed, can be measured either in terms of the weight lifted per training session, per microcycle, or per macrocycle or in terms of the total number of sets or reps performed per training session, per microcycle, per macrocycle, or per year. One should keep records of the tonnage (total weight) lifted or the sets and reps performed per session or per training phase in order to plan future training volumes.
Training volume varies based on the sport’s particular physical demands, the strength training background, and the type of strength training performed.
Muscular endurance in daily life
Muscular endurance allows you to perform physically for extended lengths of times without exhaustion. Physical endurance is especially important if you perform physical labor or if you are involved in sports where high levels of exertion are required over hours or even days. Some examples of when physical endurance is useful include during rehabilitation from an injury, digging in the garden all day, working in construction, playing competitive tennis, swimming, or marathon running.
Regardless of your reasons for improving your muscle endurance, training of all types depletes glycogen stores and
causes some degree of muscle breakdown. Therefore, what and when you eat following a training session or activity is vital to recovery, regeneration, and physiological improvement.
