Don’t eat or drink
These are the types of food, you should not eat as it will reduce your stamina and endurance. Just like we have some foods to increase stamina, there are some you should avoid.
Fried food: Never eat fried food before work-out. Fried foods are high in fat and it is extremely difficult for it to go through the digestive system and molecules are harder for your body to break down and use for energy.
Booze: When we talk about the work-out and go to increase stamina fist thing you need to do is the kick out the alcohol. Alcohol is a real endurance killer. It affects your mind and nervous system too.
Milk: it is also not a good idea to drink mild before working out as its sugars are slow-digesting and it can cause an upset stomach for you.
Pasta: Pasta is one of the food you must avoid. You must be thinking that carb-load foods are good for the body, before endurance activities. Yes, it is but not as many people think.
You must contact the diet expert before starting and workout. There are many other foods we should not eat and some drinks we should not drink before any endurance activities. So, be careful and ask you a trainer in detail.
Carlos, Italy says, ” I am an accountant. I sit in my all day long and do nothing physically. It was very difficult for me to go upstairs and even the grocery shop near me. I was recommended to do a burpee, thrice a week. But I decided to do every day before going to my office. It takes 10 to 15 minutes and it is really effective to increase stamina. Now I can do many activities easily which was really hard for me.”
Ivan, Russia says, I am fit. I don’t like waking up earlier doing Yoga or going Gym, it is very difficult for me and boring too. But, love cycling, and don’t do any other exercise. I prefer to go to my office by cycle. I am saving my time and money and I don’t need to find any hours from my busy schedule. I also participate in riding cycle competitions with my friends.

I have learned some dancing move from YouTube videos and dance more often. It is entertaining, indeed. I dance on pop music; I don’t care about my steps if its wrong or right. I do it to be fit. so, I move and jumped a lot. The door of my room is closed when I dance so no one can see how bad a dancer I am 🙂 “.
That should not be only the idea or goal to increase stamina by having medicines or taking injections.
That will appear a good effect on the outer part of your body but not inside. There are many side effects of using short cuts by taking medicine. I know a lot of people, who took medicines, body building powder, and injections.
They were working hard in the gym. But after a few months, they looked skinny and all their muscles had gone. You need to understand the differences between muscles and energy.
To increase stamina, you need to follow the natural ways like doing meditations, physical exercise and having a good diet too. You need to be very careful about the food you are eating. Never get the advice from your bodybuilder friends.
They are not a doctor, and they don’t understand how internal body parts work. Choose some exercise or anyone and keep practicing. You will feel more energetic.
