Muscular Endurance vs. Muscular Strength

What is the difference?

Muscular Strength is the ability of a muscle to exert a maximum amount of force one time. In plain English, that means that you can only do the exercise one time. Muscular Strength is one to five reps. Do any exercise more than five times, and that will be Muscular Endurance.


Muscular Endurance is the ability of a muscle to exert an amount of force multiple times. In plain English, it is your ability to an exercise more than once. If you do the exercise six or more times, it is Muscular Endurance.

Some other fun facts I've learned in Gym Class.

-- You are supposed to exercise three to five times a week,

-- The "ball" in Badminton is called a Birdie.

-- In volleyball, there can be three maximum hits of the volleyball before having to get it over the net.

-- A game much like golf but with a Frisbee exists.
