Anaerobic exercises are all that everyone is talking about these days! Anaerobic exercises are very similar to aerobic exercises but they use reserved oxygen levels in the body to help burn fat and sugar to create energy. Anaerobic exercises are a set of high intensity training exercises that are designed to raise your heart beat and help you do cardiovascular exercises that not only help you to reduce weight but also maintain it.
Examples of anaerobic exercises are:
- High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
- Weight Lifting
- Circuit training.
Many trainers and fitness experts encourage people to do anaerobic exercises as more advantages of this kind of training are being researched on. Change into your running gear as we discuss some of the benefits of anaerobic exercises:
1. Helps you to reduce weight
One of the reasons why anaerobic exercises are so efficient and get your heart racing in no time is because they have the ability to work on your entire body, so you will be working on every inch of your body that will raise your heart beat, make you sweat and help you reduce weight very quickly and in a very short amount of time.
2. Lowers Blood Sugar
One of the attributes of anaerobic exercises is that they convert sugar levels in your blood into energy and use it to help you to work out. The intake of oxygen is very little as your body uses oxygen reserves in the body to convert glucose into energy. This process is called glycolysis and it helps your body to use its oxygen and energy reserves to burn fat and help you lose weight.
This entire process that depends on burning sugar is very beneficial for diabetic patients as this will not only help them to maintain and lower their sugar levels but also help them to burn fat, burn sugar and lose weight in a very short amount of the day.
3. Reduces and Controls Blood Pressure
When your heart is constantly being challenged and you are dwelled in doing cardio for most of the day, then that only means that your heart will become more active, pump blood more efficiently and burn bad cholesterols in the body as you continue to lose weight. Cardio centric exercises are extremely well advised to high blood pressure patients, as working out and burning cholesterol is the only answer for them to lead a healthy lifestyle.
4. Improves Immunity
Anaerobic exercises also help to stimulate your lymphatic system which makes your body extra vigilant against bacteria and virus so you build a better immune system against common viruses such as the flu or the cold.
5. Boosts energy
Imagine waking up early in the morning, feeling drowsy and lazy; all you need is 10 minutes jumping on the skipping rope to get your heartbeat up and suddenly feel alive, energized and prepared for the day. Anaerobic exercises are excellent for that boost you need to feel refreshed and active in the day!
6. Doesn’t take too long
Anaerobic exercises are one of the fastest and most efficient ways of losing weight. If you’re someone who does not have a lot of time on their hands but are still struggling to lose weight, then anaerobic exercises are the most useful workouts for you. By doing cardio extensive exercises such as HIIT, cycling, jumping rope and sprinting, you can get your heart beat up in no time. This will provide you with the energy rush and boost you need to feel like you have really worked hard.
7. Increases metabolism
The science behind an increased metabolism says that the more fat you burn to work and strengthen your muscles, the more your metabolism will increase. Weight lifting is another example of anaerobic exercises because when you use excessive energy and strength to lift weights in a continuous motion, your heart beat raises, while burning fat and strengthening your muscles; the fatter that you burn the better metabolism you will have.
8. Improves Stamina and Oxygen Circulation
Since the key to doing anaerobic exercises is that they require little oxygen supply, and use up oxygen stored in the body, these exercises really help to improve your stamina and increase your threshold levels. For example, while swimming you need to be able to control your breath for as long as possible to be able to swim efficiently. In the beginning swimming might drain your energy and really prove to be difficult if you don’t have a good stamina level. However gradually, as you keep practicing your stamina improves vastly and your body gets a hang of swimming for hours without feeling the need to take a break or catch your breath.
That is what anaerobic exercises will help you achieve, strengthen your lung muscle activity and lung capacity.
9. Improves Blood circulation
Have you ever heard your heart beat when you do excessive and rigorous exercises? Does your face turn red as you feel the heat in your ears and sweat profusely? Well that’s because the blood is rushing through your entire body. When you do skipping, run very fast or do cycling at high speed, your body will be doing cardiovascular exercises which raise your heart beat, and improves blood circulation.
10. Helps create a threshold against pain
When you do excessive exercises that especially work on your muscles, you will mid workout begin to feel pain in your muscles because a chemical called lactic acid gets built up in your muscles. The only way to get rid of lactic acid is by doing breathing exercises and increasing your oxygen levels in the blood and stretching. However since anaerobic exercises use up very little oxygen to workout, your body very quickly adapts and gets used to this pain in the muscles.
