To train endurance, you need to perform higher reps of easier bodyweight exercises with short rest periods. This creates a surge of blood and nutrients to your muscles and builds up your lactic acid tolerance, or your ability to handle the burning sensation in your muscles that comes with higher-rep training.
Your lower body has more natural muscular endurance than your upper body because it’s used more often, so you’ll find that upper-body moves are difficult to maintain for 1½ minutes.
Perform this 20-minute total-body workout two or three times per week with ideally 48 hours between workouts.
