Probably it isn’t the first time you hear about aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. What’s the difference between aerobic and anaerobic workout?!
Surely, you’ve heard about these terms many times before. I am sure that many of you know the difference between aerobic and anaerobic effort, but I am pretty sure that there are many of you who still don’t know the difference between the two types of training.
So I decided to talk briefly about the difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercises.
Aerobic effort is the one that uses oxygen from outside, without affecting the body’s oxygen resources. This effort takes a long time during the workout. It leads to a decreased amount of lactic acid, the cardiovascular system works normal and heart rate changes are almost imperceptible. The workout may take several hours, and after that, you are not deeply tired. The main effects of this type of training are the oxygenation of the cells in the peripheral areas and the improvement of the cardiovascular system.
Types of aerobic exercise: spinning, running on the treadmill, swimming.
Anaerobic effort is the one that consumes the body’s oxygen reserves, at high intensity in a short amount of time. We have a large production of lactic acid, the heart rate changes singnificantly, but quickly returns to normal during recovery.
Types of anaerobic exercises : classic strength workouts, weightlifting, bodybuilding. One of the main benefits of this workout is that increases muscle mass.
I hope I’ve helped you to figure out what’s the difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
