    What exactly is Muscular Endurance?

    Physiologically what is the course of Muscular endurance and what does the body do to increase muscular endurance, including cardiovascular endurance. This question is more for TBM, but anyone feel free to add what you know.

    It uses a different type of muscle fiber.

    "muscular endurance" comes from a variety of factors. The major one is that it works a certain energy pathway, called the glycolytic pathway. By working out in this range consistently, you improve the body's ability to utilize its efficiency. Thus you increase muscle tissue's ability to keep itself energized, thus lasting longer. The body will also increase vascularization to the tissue and such, so there's more blood getting to the muscles. Plus you get your nervous system used to doing those movement patterns, so that improves efficiency also.

    Does heavy lifting also increase muscular endurance? Also is there a different type of muscle that is produced versus that of power lifting. I was having a discussion on the type of muscle developed by different activities. I wasn't sure what to say on "Aerobic activities cause the muscle to be longer and flatter" response I was given.

    No, heavy lifting will not increase muscular endurance. They work in different energy pathways.

    High repetition, light to moderate resistance. The best example that comes to mind is calisthenics, but it can also be done with weight training.

    What range of time officially constitutes endurance? 181 seconds?

    Varies from person to person, but the ATP/CP cycle starts to slow down significantly after about 15 seconds-ish... and the glycolytic cycle fully takes over somewhere between 30 and 60 seconds, up until between 3 and 5 minutes.

    Here's where I think isometric full tension exercise and stance training (isotonic)come into play. You have to have muscular endurance to do the activities. As you progress, you can do and withstand more and more, increase time, repitions, or whatever may be.
