Home FITNESS TIPS AEROBIC TRAINING

San Diego Aerobic Training

aerobic training Aerobic training literally means training where the cells have adequate oxygen. Whether exercise is "aerobic" or not may vary from one individual to another. Someone in good physical shape will generally be able to do more strenuous activity and remain aerobic, whereas someone in poor shape may have a hard time staying aerobic doing relatively little exercise. This being the case, "aerobics" class is generally "anaerobic" for most of the participants!

Why this is important - from a metabolic standpoint, fat can only be burned in an aerobic environment. So, if your goal is to burn fat, you must not cross into the "anaerobic" area where glucose is the fuel burned. So what is an aerobic exercise? Walking (not out-of-breath) is one of the best!

 

Also, as you become fit, your "aerobic threshold" will shift allowing you to stay aerobic with more strenuous exercise.

One of the best gauges to assess if you are aerobic is you should be able to easily have a conversation with someone while exercising. If you get out-of-breath, your body goes into "oxygen debt" and will begin using available glucose as the fuel source.

The lesson is as follows: to lose fat, go aerobic. Do aerobic training at least 2-3 times per week preferably in the morning prior to eating or directly after your muscular training.
