Indicates the muscles ability to utilize oxygen in the blood. 
Endurance exercises consist of: Running, cycling, and swimming -Muscular strength How much force a muscle or muscle group generates during a single maximal contraction. Important in all sports. Allows optimal functioning in everyday tasks. 
Even modest amounts of weight training improve muscular strength. 
-Muscular endurance Ability of muscle to generate a submaximal force repeatedly, related to but  not the same as muscular strength. Gains in muscular strength can improve 
endurance but endurance does not improve strength.
-Flexibility The ability to move joints in a full range of motion, without regular stretching  muscles and tendons shorten and become tight. Everyone needs some sort of 
regular stretching to function properly. Research suggests flexibility is important in 
injury prevention and low back pain.
