ANTI-AGING BODYBUILDING

AEROBIC - ANAEROBIC EXERCISE

 

Aerobic or Anaerobic

Aerobic simply means in the presence of oxygen. Activities performed at low to moderate intensity [brisk walking, slow running, very low weight / high repetition exercises] allow oxygen to be used to generate energy for the muscles.

Anaerobic activity is any activity where the body does not use oxygen to generate energy. The body uses different metabolic pathways. Anaerobic activities [sprints and very heavy / low repetition weight lifting] tend to be short duration [less than 90 seconds], burst of activity where the body just doesn’t have time to circulate oxygen to the muscles.

To maximise fat burn; include BOTH in your routines.

Aerobic Benefits

  1. Increased cardiovascular endurance
  2. Decreased body fat

Aerobic Liabilities

  1. Doesn’t build muscle
  2. Decreased muscle mass - when the body uses fat for energy it also breaks down muscle.
  3. Decreased speed
  4. Decreased power

Now, anaerobic training, the kind where you push yourself hard for short periods of time, uses a different metabolic system to supply the muscles with energy, which trains the body to respond in a different way to exercise.

Anaerobic Benefits

  1. Increased Cardiovascular Capacity
  2. Increased Cardiovascular Recovery Ability
  3. Strength Gains
  4. Power Gains
  5. Improved Speed
  6. Decreased Body Fat - yields the most post workout fat burning

Anaerobic Liabilities

  1. Increased Risk of Injury in Untrained People
  2. Requires a Good Aerobic Foundation
