Think back to the first time you ever fenced, even if it wasn’t that long ago. You were completely out of breath by the end of it, but your instructor wasn’t. Now ask yourself a question: Have you gotten any better?
Not skill-wise, rather in terms of your endurance. Are you able to fence more bouts than you were on day one? Are you able to breathe at a more normal rate after your fencing bouts? Or does it still feel like your very first day?
Building endurance for fencing bouts takes work, just like any other aspect of the sport. And today, we’re going to discuss the secret to building endurance for fencing. Once you take this advice, you’ll be able to fence more bouts, fence longer bouts, and breathe a little bit more easily by the end of your fencing sessions.
