    Endurance

    I play handball (think racquetball, but without racquet's) for fun and cardio. 2 games to 21 and a possible tiebreaker to 11 make up one match. I've got no problem playing a full match, but in tournament formats, I sometimes have to play back to back matches. The thing that cost me in the state tournament last month was having no legs or lungs in the second half of a double-header. My question to you all is other than playing more handball, what can I do to build up my endurance? Long sessions of cardio, HIIT? Right now I'm running 4-5 days a week usually 1-5 miles at a time.
    I wish my lawn was emo so it would cut itself

    Look up "hill repeats" in this article.

    I use 5% grade, 3.5 mph for recovery, and start my first hill at 9%, working up to 15%.

    Do these once a week for a month and work your way up to 40 minutes of hills. Builds up heart stroke fast, without having to do boatloads of cardio to get there.
