I have been training regularly but I suffer from a lack of endurance. What tips you have for improving my stamina?

First of all, let’s define what endurance is to be able to understand what is needed to improve stamina.

Endurance is the ability to remain active for a long period of time as well as to resist fatigue and be able to accomplish or withstand a higher amount of effort than the original capabilities of a person.

Going back to the question, the answer simply will be changing the type of training by increasing the amount of repetitions or time spent, but with less effort or lower weights.

For example, look at running for a marathon versus running for a sprint. Running a marathon will increase your endurance and stamina, while a sprint will increase speed and strength.

That’s why endurance is generally referred to training the aerobic system, which is the physical exercise of low to moderate intensity that depends mainly on the aerobic energy generating process. This refers to the use of oxygen to adequately meet energy demands during the exercise. 

Finally it’s believed that gaining endurance through training has shown a decrease in the anxiety, depression and stress and any chronic disease and also can assist the cardiovascular system.
