Muscular endurance refers to how long a person’s muscles can repeat a physical activity before tiring. Exercises like weight lifting, squats and circuit training offer options for muscular endurance, notes Tanya Brown for AZCentral. While some of the exercises may require a person to adjust a bit, most of them can be performed with ease.

According to FitnessLinkPros.com, a push-up is one of the most ideal muscular endurance exercises. It provides a static muscular movement so it does not exert a lot of pressure on the muscles. On the same note, circuit resistance training is another muscular endurance program.

Brown also lists squats and lunges as two other muscular endurance exercises that can develop strength and muscle endurance, particularly in hamstrings, quadriceps and calves. With these muscles becoming much stronger, a person is able to run faster, swim longer and perform many other actions.

A person can use intervals of weightlifting as a way to develop muscle endurance. It is an excellent way of giving oneself a perfect mix of strength training and cardio. As important as exercise is for healthy living, people should consult their healthcare provider or physician before trying their hand at any of these muscular endurance exercises, advises Brown.
