Getting to the Heart of Cardio

Posted by Vitamin Discount Center on 2/1/2014 to Exercise
Exercise can be broken down into two categories: aerobic (with oxygen) and anaerobic (without oxygen). Anaerobic exercise uses a large amount of oxygen in a short amount of time and leaves you out of breath quickly. It is referred to as “without oxygen” because the exercise you are performing uses the oxygen your body already has stored. This form of exercise includes activities such as lifting weights or sprinting, and is predominately used to build speed and strength. Aerobic exercise, also known as cardiovascular exercise, lasts an extended period of time and stimulates the heart and lungs in order to continuously pump oxygenated blood through the body, which is then used to fuel the ongoing activity.

Now before you start defending fat-free and low fat alternatives, it is important that you understand the goal of this article is not to convince you that low fat alternatives are bad, but that maybe there is more to weight gain and health issues than fat.
