A little fence sitting never hurt anybody
It’s curious to me why so many people zero in on one type of exercise to the exclusion of all others. Maybe it’s because we discover something that works for us or maybe we just enjoy it more. I think that mixing in a little bit from other disciplines can add a huge benefit to your core aerobic routine. Perhaps a little weight lifting isn’t too bad or at least some added resistance beyond gravity and your own body weight alone.
Muscle mass does help with maintaining consistent body weight.
The idea you’ll wake up on morning looking like a super hero by some sort of accident simply doesn’t happen. The excuse that you’ll end up looking bulky isn’t reasonable. Besides if you really want to look and feel fit – add some muscle weight.
Read below to understand the difference…
Most often when we think about exercise we think aerobic. That is in part because of the high energy classes available at most gyms. Aerobic exercise is not confined to those classes, however. For most people, low to moderate exercise or exertion is generally aerobic. So what is the difference between aerobic and anaerobic exercise? In the simplest terms the difference comes down to the oxygen. With aerobic exercise oxygen is carried through your breath to the muscles giving them the energy needed to sustain the effort. Oxygen is not present with anaerobic exercise.
Oxygen is not present with anaerobic exercise. When we exercise anaerobically glycogen is used as fuel. Once all the glycogen has been depleted (usually in about two hours) you can expect to hit the proverbial wall. Endurance athletes avoid this performance buster with carbo loading before exercise (which when converted to sugar gives more energy) and supplements during exercise to sustain energy.
