Thread: Aerobic or Anaerobic?

    Default Aerobic or Anaerobic?

    Aerobic or Anaerobic?
    by Sherali Bharwani

    To lose weight, you have to burn calories at a higher
    rate than you consume for some time. But the type of
    calories your body burns is very important: either
    aerobic or anaerobic calories.

    Aerobic calories burn fat as your body breathes in oxygen.
    Low-intensity activities up to and including walking are
    mainly fat burning. However, as your body's need for energy
    becomes greater than your rate of oxygen intake, your body
    begins burning anaerobic calories.

    Anaerobic calories burn glucose by converting a starch
    stored in your muscles known as glycogen. Since this
    doesn't require oxygen, anaerobic calories are used in very
    strenuous activities for short periods.

    The accumulation of lactic acid as a by product of
    anaerobic activity produces a burning sensation in the
    muscle. This symptom means you are burning glycogen, not
    fat. You can't feel fat burning!

    So it's pretty obvious that in order to lose fat to the
    maximum, you must concentrate on aerobic activities rather
    than anaerobic activities. The big question now is which
    activities are aerobic and which are anaerobic.

    The word aerobic literally means 'with oxygen' or 'in the
    presence of oxygen'. Aerobic exercise is any activity that
    uses large muscle groups, can be maintained continuously
    for a long period of time and is rhythmic in nature.

    Aerobic activity trains the heart, lungs and cardiovascular
    system to process and deliver oxygen more quickly and
    efficiently to every part of the body.

    As the heart muscle becomes stronger and more efficient, a
    larger amount of blood can be pumped with each stroke.
    Fewer strokes are then required to rapidly transport oxygen
    to all parts of the body.

    An aerobically fit individual can work longer, more
    vigorously and achieve a quicker recovery at the end of the
    aerobic session.

    Think of aerobic activity as being long in duration yet low
    in intensity.

    Aerobic activities include: brisk walking, biking, jogging,
    swimming, aerobic classes and cross-country skiing.

    Anaerobic activity, on the other hand is short in duration
    and high in intensity.

    Anaerobic activities include: racquetball, downhill skiing,
    weight lifting, sprinting, softball, soccer and football.

    Default Nice article

    I'm a dude, but maybe this is why I don't grow; I can't give up raquetball, tennis, and soccer. However, rock climbing is the bomb when it comes to back development. Wink
