Aerobic & Strength Training

First of all, let's take a closer look at what aerobic exercise is all about. Many people have a kind of impression that aerobic exercise is just an exercise which involves individuals conducting activities with exaggerating movements, for example by jumping here and there. That's correct, but only partially. "Aerobic" relates to oxygen, it refers to the utilization of oxygen in body metabolic processes. That is why, when individuals are carrying out big movement exercises, people refer it as aerobic exercise, as the individuals who carry out such exercises need large amount of oxygen to increase endurance, thus increasing aerobic capacity (maximum amount of oxygen the body can utilize) in the long run.

How about strength exercises? Strength exercises also known as strength training. Strength training is a kind of exercise where it builds up the strength and size of our muscles. When strength training is properly conducted, many great benefits could be obtained. For instance, the strength of your bones, muscles, tendon, ligament, it can even increase the rate of metabolism.

A group researchers which was led by Mogens T. Pedersen, PhD, from University of Copenhagen, has now proven that cardiovascular risk factors like high blood pressure and excessive body fat can be decreased drastically by carrying out either aerobic exercises or strength training in a study which involved 841 Danish officer workers.

The study also shows that both types of exercises also cause reduction in back and shoulder pain by 30 percents. Currently, researchers are still working hard to find out whether specific strength training or the all-rounded exercises could reduce aches and pains in certain parts of the body.

Therefore, it is highly recommended that you carry out these exercises to stay healthy other than consuming GT&F Products.
