Aerobic training is the form of cardiovascular exercises that activate almost all muscles in the body. Aerobic training involves series of repeated movements. These exercises are usually conducted without addition weight so in this process no bulk is added to the muscles. The name means “with oxygen” because this type of exercise improves the efficiency of oxygen transport thought the body. Aerobic exercise induces chemical processes in the body which result in fat burning. You see, with this type of exercise carbohydrates are broken down to produce energy needed for the workout. In the absence of a large quantity of carbohydrates(when a person is on a diet) fat deposits are activated and burned instead.
Aerobic training burns a lot of calories and increases the metabolism speed so it is considered to be one of the best trainings for weight loss and body shaping. These exercises don’t just help in reducing weight but also increase the body’s ability to burn fat during exercise, instead of storing it and burning muscles.
A 30 to 60 minutes aerobic training can bring many health benefits, such as:
- Stronger and healthier heart and blood vessels
- More energy and better fitness level
- Faster recovery after exercising
- Better circulation and lower blood pressure
- Stress and depressions reduction, better memory
This type of training activates almost all muscle groups and is therefore ideal for shaping the body and toning the muscles. Off course, that is not something you can achieve overnight, you must train at least two to three times a day. For beginners, a moderate intensity 30 minutes workout is more than effective. Later on, when your body gets used to exercise you can prolong your training and make it more intensive.
The ideal training is combined 60 minutes training plus additional time for warm up and cool down. That means that after the warm up you should start slow and then increase the exercising speed and intensity. The finish should also be slower so the body can relax and cool down. There are many types of aerobic trainings from which you can chose- water aerobics, dance aerobics, bicycle training, running, rope jumping and many more. You don’t even have to go to the gym to do your exercise routine. There are many exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home, or even outdoors- which ever environment you like and find good for exercising.
