In the context of fitness, the technical definition of power endurance, or power stamina is “the time rate of doing work,” which is basically the speed at which you can apply force. It’s all about explosive movement, and there are many ways to go about increasing it, but two of the most common are circuits and route climbing. To increase power by circuit training, the typical advice is to perform multiple sets of 12-24 explosive reps using 75 to 90 percent of your 1RM (repetition to max). You’ll need to rest for 2 to 3 minutes between sets to allow for sufficient power recovery. You must periodize your sessions so you don’t burn out, overtrain or risk injury.
The second common power endurance method is based in timed climbing or intervals (HITTS) Tabatas, for example, are mentioned in this guide as a highly recommended routine. Before engaging on this program, make sure you have the time available and the intention to stick to the plan for at least 4 weeks.
