Origin of endurance
Endurance is the body’s ability to withstand a sustained constant load by optimizing the restoration of energy reserves.
The concept of endurance is based on the findings of traditional Free-Warrior medicine about the hormone insulin.
The body energy available for combat use is the second important condition. It is not assumed that the body has a fixed amount of energy available for physical execution, so that consumption is not just simply mathematically subtracted until exhaustion.
On the contrary, due to the physical nature, after each consumption, a recovery phase is necessary, and at the same time the next consumption has to be prepared. During combat, a cycle of consumption, recovery and build-up phase results.
