Stamina and endurance use time in different ways. The length of time that you can work at maximum capacity is called stamina. If your stamina is high, you can go for a long time at full force. Sprinters are the perfect example. Endurance is all about duration of performance, regardless of capacity level. Energy is spread out over an extended period of time. For marathon runners, high endurance levels are needed to perform well.

Sprint interval training burns abdominal fat, hikes insulin sensitivity, and lowers carbs burning and high BP to avert diabetes and heart diseases. It helps build fat-free muscles by enhancing the protein synthesis pathways and hikes muscle stamina and efficiency by boosting oxygen exchange. It can also lift your mood by triggering endorphin release. Despite the benefits, it's best avoided by arthritic and cardiac patients.

Do a cardio activity (cycling/running/walking/row machine) at high intensity for 30 secs. Recover at your own pace for 3–4 mins. Do 4–8 rounds in 30–45 mins. Or just do it for 20 mins at your max. tempo. You can also go high-intensity on one activity for 10 mins, then recover with a relaxed one for 5 mins (eg. treadmill for the work interval and elliptical for recovery!).
High-intensity interval training involves short duration cardio and focuses on large muscle groups. It's best done early morning on an empty stomach as your body desperately seeks energy from stored fat reserves, exposing lean muscle. A 22-45 min long HIIT workout includes a warm up, 30-60 sec high-intensity exercises (4-6 reps) split by medium-intensity exercises, and a cool down.
Every individual has an optimal heart rate range where the body burns fat and builds muscle fiber efficiently. Interval training, which raises and lowers the heart rate during a workout, helps improve the body's aerobic and anaerobic performance. An exercise metabolic test is essential to create a personalized cardio training plan that will help you reach your optimal heart rate goals faster.
Includes 20 secs of bodyweight Squats, 20 secs of Push-Ups, 20 secs of Mason Twists, 20 secs of Burpees, 20 secs of Diamond Push-Ups, 20 secs Vertical Crunches, 20 secs of Clock Lunges and 20 secs of Mountain Climbers.
