Aerobic

Aerobic training greatly increases the body’s functional capacity to transport and use oxygen and to burn fatty acids during exercise. Some of the major changes measured as a result of aerobic exercise (especially interval training) include the following:

  • Increased mitochondrial density in slow-twitch muscle fiber, which results in higher energy production from fatty acids.
  • Higher aerobic capacity
  • Increase in trained muscle capacity to utilize and mobilize fat
  • Greater development of slow-twitch muscle fibers

Anaerobic

Anaerobic training greatly increases the body’s functional capacity for development of explosive strength and maximization of short-term energy systems. Some of the major changes measured as a result of anaerobic exercise include the following:

  • Increased size and number of fast-twitch muscle fibers
  • Increased tolerance to higher levels of blood lactate
  • Increases in enzymes involved in the anaerobic phase of glucose breakdown
  • Increased levels of growth hormone and testosterone after short bouts (45 to 75 min) of high-intensity weight training

   Aerobic Vs. Anaerobic

 

Increase the muscles endurance

You exercise till you gas out

Increase the heart muscle blood pumping efficiency

Oxygen builds up, lactic acid builds up, and you start to feel the burn

Sustain for an extended period of time

You can’t sustain the activity for an extended period of time

Heart rate between 120 – 150 BPM

It leads to greater size and strength of muscles
