Anaerobic Exercise Advantages

We’d all probably like to spend some more time at the gym. Unfortunately, most of us lead busy lives. Don’t worry, you can get just as good of a workout by working smarter, not harder. If you know exactly what you get out of a workout, you can tailor it to better fit your schedule. Here, we’ll go over some of the advantages of doing an anaerobic workout.

Strength:

If you want to build up some strength and muscle mass, you’ve got no better option than anaerobic exercise. Isolate the muscle groups you want to push for optimal efficiency.

Boost Up Your Cardio:

Anaerobic exercise lets you take in more Oxygen during your workout. While it can’t replace the benefits of cardio, it can boost your ability to do it for long periods of time.

Slim Up:

Many people don’t know this, but an increase in muscle mass equates to an increase in calories burned throughout the day. If you want to boost your metabolism, just put on a few pounds of muscle.

How To Breathe During Exercise

silhouette of runnersSometimes just getting your exercise in seems to take a big effort. However, learning about and planning your workout routine can prove just as important as actually getting it done. Did you know that how you breathe during your exercise creates a big effect on your workout? If you’d like to learn a little more about the proper methods, we go over them briefly here.

For Aerobics:

At some point, people acquired the habit of breathing through their chest. While it may come more naturally to you, it doesn’t take air in as efficiently as diaphramatic breathing. To breathe from your diaphram, you focus the air closer to your stomach (where your diaphram rests) rather than your chest.

For Weight Lifting:

Many people just naturally stop breathing during strenuous weight lifting exercises. This can create complications; remember to breathe the whole time, exhaling during the strenuous lifts.

 

Experiment with these methods to see how they feel for you. If you need new exercise equipment to work with, Fitness in Motion has you covered.
