May 07, 2021

We always confuse with the definition of aerobic and anaerobic. In this article, we will talk about their difference, training, workouts, exercising, and relevant products.

The Difference Between Aerobic and Anaerobic

Oxygen consumption, heart rate, and organic metabolism differs in aerobic and anaerobic exercises. 

In an adequate oxygen condition, the cells consume the sugar needed and the oxygen can fully oxidise the sugar. Simply speaking, aerobic exercise is low-intensity, rhythmic exercise. However, when a person performs exercises in a low-oxygen environment, the activity of the lungs increases thus expands the arteries vessels, and metabolism accelerates then requires more energy consumption. As a result, aerobic metabolism cannot meet the body's energy requirement, then sugar is metabolized without oxygen to release more energy. This process is what we call anaerobic process. Therefore, it only takes half of the time for the normal to achieve the same fitness performance.

In general, both aerobic and anaerobic activities are good for strengthening the function of the immune system, the brain tissue and muscle to use oxygen, etc..

Strength training

Anaerobic training can be generally called strength training. Short-term, explosive sports such as weightlifting, dumbbell rows, sprinting, and boxing are all anaerobic exercises, while slow and sustained muscle movements like the most typical bodybuilding exercises are also anaerobic exercises.

Strength training blows muscles and consumes more energy. Targeted muscle training can give you the perfect curve and suitable for someone who wants to become a muscular. Strength training will unavoidably bring muscle soreness, and this is a drawback that all anaerobic workouts have. In fact, the reason is on account of anaerobic metabolism process. Intermediate metabolites, such as lactic acid, cannot be eliminated by respiration, then accumulates in muscle cells, causing muscle soreness. So, after anaerobic workouts, we need to do some aerobic stretch activities to release those acid inside.
