Endurance is the body’s physical ability to sustain a specific activity (usually at a submaximal work rate) for a prolonged period of time. It has two components: cardiovascular and muscular endurance. Endurance medicine aims to improve one’s ability to endure through injury management and prevention, exercise tolerance training, and psychologic and nutritional training.
