Cardiovascular Endurance

As you breathe deep, kick your legs and forcefully move your arms, your cardiovascular system circulates blood and oxygen to fuel your working muscles against the water's resistance. Without a strong cardiovascular endurance system, your swim is cut short and you are left treading water.

muscular endurance

Think of the guy you knew in high school that could do 100 pushups in one set. That guy had a lot of muscular endurance. Similar to other specific training methods, getting great with muscular endurance takes a lot of energy and time, leading to less overall maximal strength and sometimes even hypertrophy. If you can recall, specializing in one training modality usually lessens the progress of other modalities.

Reaction Time
