    Default Muscle endurance.

    I'm a little over 50 and started a new job loading trailers at a distribution center. They start you with 4 hours as sort of a break in period and I find myself sucking a little wind by that time. Any suggestions on what I can do to help me with my wind and muscle endurance would be appreciated.

    I worked a few years for Target then Walmart off loading 18 wheeler trucks. You being new to the job its primarily learning to pace yourself. Look into kettlebells and ETK (Enter the Kettlebell) Program Minimum. Also DVRT sand bag training program. These programs will increase your work capacity such as you need in that new job of yours...Dennis

    Thank you sir for the advice. I to worked unloading trailers but I'm finding that loading them is a different animal.

    One word of caution though--your work is a "work out" and adding to it, too much too soon, could lead to over training even injury. Just getting plenty of rest (and good quality diet) while going to work every day will get you in shape for the job. Extra is extra.

    Yes, if your job involves significant physical effort throughout the workday, care should be taken not to over extend yourself in training so as not to negatively effect your job. I think the ETK (Program Minimum) would be a good fit. Even then always 'listen' to your body. ...Dennis

    Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to sustain repeated contractions against a resistance for an extended period of time. It is one of the components of muscular fitness, along with muscular strength and power. Try hgh supplements for good results. To improve muscular endurance you must repeatedly work and contract the muscle groups you aim to develop. Circuit training involves bodyweight exercise such as sit-ups, press-ups, and squat thrusts. Circuit training can be adapted to a specific activity; for example, badminton lunges and basketball chest passes.
