Anaerobic Exercise: The Benefits

Previously, we’ve explained the difference between aerobic exercise vs. anaerobic exercise; the former uses oxygen for energy production and the latter uses other methods. Each has their own distinct health benefits. If you’d like to know what they include, we discuss the benefits of anaerobic exercise here.

Strength Building?

Do you want the ability to lift a ton of weight? Want to focus on strength training? Anaerobic exercise can most efficiently help you reach these goals. 

Boost Cardio:

While anaerobic exercise doesn’t have the cardiovascular benefits that aerobic exercise does, it does increase the amount of oxygen you can take in. Since aerobic exercise uses oxygen for energy production, you can do it longer.

Lose Weight:

Did you know that the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn daily. Yes, building muscle mass can increase your metabolism. If you want to lose weight, but can’t get into the cardio yet, anaerobic exercise offers a great place to start.
