endurance vs stamina

Cardio Endurance - The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.

Stamina - The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.

Here is an easy way to differentiate between the two. If during a workout, your breathing becomes extremely fast and shallow while your lips and face begin to turn blue, that is failure of your Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance to provide enough oxygen to your body. If during a workout, the weight that was once light starts to become harder and harder to lift and your muscles are begining to fatigue, then that is a failure of your Stamina to deliver and utilize energy to keep your muscles going.


“A disease is never a disease of the individual part. Diabetes is not a disease of blood sugar, osteoporosis is not a disease of calcium and heart disease is NOT a disease of cholesterol. A disease is caused not by the breakdown of the part itself, but interference in the instructions to that part, a disruption in the unity of the whole.” -Dr. Ron Rosedale

- When you are prepared to die for something worthwhile then you truly live.
