Nowadays, sports has become a fashion. It is often heard by people who love sports, aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. What is the difference between aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise?
1, different ways of exercising
Aerobic exercise: The popular explanation is that the type of breathing is smooth, the intensity is low and lasts for a long time, through continuous or repeated activities, and a certain amount of exercise is completed within a certain time, in the whole process of exercise. We are able to complete the breathing smoothly, but the breathing is slow and rush, such as jogging, cycling, and so on.
Anaerobic exercise: It can usually be interpreted as high-intensity, high-frequency, short-scheduled exercise, and can not complete normal breathing exercises at a certain rhythm, such as professional strength training, 100-meter sprint run.
2, the required energy source is different
The energy required for aerobic exercise is mainly provided by oxidizing starch, fat and protein in the body, and most of the muscle groups in the body participate during exercise.
The energy required for anaerobic exercise is mainly provided by the decomposition of blood sugar, and the participation of oxygen is not required in the energy supply process.
Under normal circumstances, the main role of aerobic exercise is fitness, while the main role of anaerobic exercise is shaping, daily fitness programs are aerobic exercise with anaerobic exercise to achieve physical fitness.
There is no absolute limit to aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise.
There is no absolute limit between aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. In fact, aerobic and anaerobic seldom exist independently, and they do not change from one metabolic state to another at a time. More often, they overlap each other. However, sometimes aerobic metabolism is dominant, and sometimes anaerobic metabolism is dominant.
Taking running as an example, aerobic metabolism is a big part when starting a trot, but anaerobic exercise still exists more or less, but certainly not 0, as the intensity of exercise increases (such as the increase in running speed), The aerobic metabolism gradually increases, but when the intensity reaches a certain value, the aerobic metabolism decreases, and the anaerobic metabolism increases.
