How to Improve Your Anaerobic Capacity

One of the key component missing in most fitness programs today is the need for anaerobic exercise. This is the quick burst, short, get-you-out-of-breath type of exercise.

There is conclusive research showing that anaerobic workouts improve performance for individuals and athletes of all ages. These types of workouts can pull off body fat, put on muscle, and make you feel great.

Anaerobic exercise also accelerates the release of exercise-induced growth hormone like no other form of exercise. Research has shown that exercise-induced growth hormone can do wonderful things for your body and act as a natural “Fountain of Youth”.

Aerobic and Anaerobic Fitness Plan

For years, the established standard for exercise has been 30 minutes of exercise a day. And walking for 30 minutes a day was said to be adequate enough to delay heart disease and premature death.

Research now disagrees and shows that what is needed is a fitness plan that incorporates both aerobic and anaerobic training. These two forms of training are interrelated and are both vital components of a comprehensive fitness plan.

Anaerobic workouts can be produced in many ways – including swimming, skiing, running, and even power walking.

Target Heart Rate

Target Heart Rate (THR) is a common way of judging how hard you should exercise during endurance activities. It tells you how fast the average person should try to make his or her heart beat during endurance sessions. When undertaking an exercise program it is important to have a goal and a target range that you are trying to accomplish in each workout. To be of benefit, you want the workout to be neither too hard nor too easy.
