Published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, an Iowa State University study looking exercise-related activity over time, of nearly 13000 people, showed it doesn't necessarily take a lot of time to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes. The results - some of the first to look at resistance exercise and cardiovascular disease - show benefits of strength training are independent of running, walking or other aerobic activity. In other words, you do not have to meet the recommended guidelines for aerobic physical activity to lower your risk; weight training alone is enough. (Sci..
There are lots of shapes and styles of workouts…weight lifting, powerlifting, bodybuilding, Olympic lifting, power training, and Cross-fit; just a few.The circuit idea has much in common with Interval Training which has been around a long time and is the basis of much athletic training. Its key principle is to vary a workout or training session between periods of intense effort and rest periods – either passive (pure) rests, or active rests, where the trainer proceeds at a much lower pace.  The result is you get more intense training done in a given period, and more done overall towards ..
Aerobic means "with oxygen," meaning oxygen - carried by your cardiovascular system to your muscles, as the fuel; anaerobic means "without oxygen." With training, aerobic fitness lets you swim or run or cycle for long periods. Anaerobic exercise is the type where you get out of breath in just a few moments, such as when lifting heavy weights to improve strength, when you sprint, or when you climb a long, steep flight of stairs. It’s something that’s used in bursts of intensity and depletes rapidly.Anaerobic exercise uses glycogen, which is largely stored in muscle or the liver. Glycogen, (a g..
New research, presented at the American College of Cardiology 's Latin America Conference 2018 in Lima, Peru, found that while all physical activity is beneficial, static activities -- such as strength training -- were more strongly associated with reducing heart disease risks than dynamic activities like walking and cycling."Both strength training and aerobic activity appeared to be heart healthy, even in small amounts, at the population level," said Maia P. Smith, PhD, MS, statistical epidemiologist and assistant professor in the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at St. Geo..
