Ausdauer trotz Muskelmasse

Endurance despite muscle mass – is it possible?

Many athletes believe that you can’t have endurance with a lot of muscle. Is that true?  Is it possible to improve stamina despite muscle mass? Endurance vs Strength Comparing endurance athletes with strength athletes, the difference is most obvious at first glance. Endurance athletes are thinner and strength athletes simply have more muscle mass. Why?  Strength athletes have more of the so-called white muscle fibers. These are thicker, can generate more power, and are driven faster. The energy supply happens anaerobically, without oxygen, and due to the fast lactate increase the white muscle fibers tire very quickly. Runners and endurance athletes have much more red muscle fibers, in contrast to strength athletes . They are much thinner than the white fibers and are also driven slower. The energy supply is aerobic, with oxygen, and they work much more energy efficiently. Is it possible to improve stamina despite muscle mass? Yes, that is possible. With more muscle mass, you do also have to carry more weight during endurance training, which takes more energy, but the muscle …

Did you know about the step length?

Did you ever think about your step length? If you use a pedometer, then it is important to set the step length correctly. Step Length is the distance measured from the heel print of one foot to the heel print of the other foot. For walking the average is 2.2 feet for a woman and 2.5 feet for a man. Eliud Kipchoge’s, world record holder in marathon, average cadence is around 185 steps per minute with a stride/step length of 1.90 meters. This means he took a total of 22505 steps during the marathon. A normal runner needs more than the double. There are differences between step lengths for walking and running. When you run you make a longer step, but you need less steps. So when you go for a run or for a walk with your friend, then you can´t compare the steps, because they may be different. That’s the reason why some pedometers automatically calculate your steps by learning from your activities. That’s the best way to have the exact steps and …
