What Is Anaerobic Exercise?


Anaerobic exercise involves short, fast, high-intensity exercises that don't use oxygen. Instead, they break down glucose in your muscles for energy.

There's often a gray area where aerobic and anaerobic exercise overlap, and a runner's pace can turn their aerobic workout into an anaerobic one.

Spend 5 minutes warming up, focus on larger muscle groups, do three sets of 8-15 repetitions of each exercise, and rotate through 8-10 exercises in a routine.

After age 27, you start to lose muscle mass. By staying active and including anaerobic strength training in your exercise regimen, you can slow this loss.

The CDC recommends 150 minutes of moderate activity each week, along with 2 or more days of strength training. Do something you enjoy doing and switch up your routine on a regular basis.
