EXERCISE PART 1 FLEXIBILITY, ANAEROBIC AND AEROBIC EXERCISE | READING CORNER | 3 BASIC TYPES OF EXERCISE
Anaerobic exercise involves short bursts of exertion followed by periods of rest. Bodies develop stronger muscles as the result of anaerobic exercise. Anaerobic exercise does not burn fat, because it is generally performed at an intensity that is too great to allow enough oxygen into the body to burn fat for energy. However, its muscle-building results can complement aerobic exercise. Examples of anaerobic activities include push-ups, stomach crunches, pull-ups, weight lifting, calisthenics, golf, sprinting, etc.
Aerobic exercise means exercise “with air”, and emphasizes oxygen in the air. Muscles need oxygen to function. Aerobic encompasses any activity that continually supplies enough oxygen to the exercising muscles for the duration of the activity. The kind of exercise that reduces fat is called aerobic exercise. During aerobic exercise, the heart beats faster and breathing is heavier. The increased oxygen level combines with stored fat and literally burns the fat away. Regular aerobic exercise (20 minutes of exercise three or more times a week) also raises the body’s metabolism; the body burns more calories all the time – even at rest! Examples of aerobic activities include Tai Chi exercise, breathing exercise, walking (fast), running/jogging, basketball, bicycling, hockey, ice skating, karate, rollerblading, rowing, soccer, swimming, tennis, cross-country skiing, dancing, jumping, and skating.
Flexibility Exercise & Stretching
Flexibility exercises lengthens and stretches muscles to enhance balance and overall grace an agility. It helps the body and breathing. A very good example of this type of exercise are stretching, pilates, and tai chi. We recommend more aerobic, flexibility and stretching exercises and moderation of anaerobic exercises.
