Patient discussion about stamina

Q. Does anyone have tips to increase on my cardio endurance levels, like by supplementation? Does anyone have tips to increase on my cardio endurance levels, like by supplementation? I am regular with my exercise and good diet….

A. Your cardio is different and has no role and connection with endurance. The more you become stronger with exercises like aerobic and anaerobic the stronger your muscles, joints and your heart. Please, no extra supplementation is required and only balanced diet. You can increase on workout timing as endurance has a link with increased timing which it will give to your body and heart as well.
