I'm not a football fan, so I didn't watch the Superbowl last weekend. What I did get super excited about, however, was the Katy Perry halftime show. That girl was on FIRE (literally her dress was orange sparkly flames). With her multiple outfit changes, sexy dance moves, and amazing props (like that CRAZY lion) she was the real star of the Superbowl.

What astounding me was how that girl was able to just keep going! Through the entire show she was dancing, singing, and running around. It must have taken some incredible stamina to make it through the show. Though one look at her body in her sexy California Girls' costume and its clear the singer is in great shape. To keep up her physique, her trainer revealed that she exercises five times in a week!

I'm not going to give you the whole spiel on Katy Perry's workout schedule, but I am going to give you some tips on how to get your endurance up.

  1. Combine strength and cardio days

    Most people rotate cardio and strength days, but you might be better off to do both in one day. The more muscle you burn, the more your heart will get challenged!

  2. Try Interval Training

    Running for long periods of time can be torture challenging so sometimes its best to rotate running at a faster pace and then cooling it down. As long as you're heart rate's up, you're good!

  3. Long Periods Lower Intensity Cardio

    Especially if you're just starting out, going with lower intensity cardio like walking or light jogging might be the way to go. Challenge yourself by going the distance instead of sprinting.

  4. Keep Track

    Record how fast and how long you're going for. Try to make goals to beat yourself and push ahead.

  5. Break Down Your Cardio Trek with Strength Training

    Its not enough to just do strength training and cardio in the same day. Try breaking up your cardio with some strength training exercises. It will make your cardio less of a killer if you break it up.
