Aerobic Exercise

By Edited May 31, 2014 3 0

One's desire to conduct aerobic exercise, however rigorous, is just one aspect of their pursuit of total holistic wellness. Beyond adherence to a nutritional diet, while maintaining psychological health, aerobic exercise effectively engages just about all of your body systems, and promotes an overall sense of well-being.

While the science behind aerobic exercise can become really quite complex, as opposed to anaerobic exercise, aerobic exercise improves and/or involves oxygen consumption by the body. As you inhale, you take in oxygen which, through a series of processes, is meant to be effectively delivered to your peripheral circulation. With this oxygen consumption comes increased blood flow to your body's tissues and organs. Along with this obtainment of oxygen, carbon dioxide, a waste product of your body's processes, is exhaled and this process continues for the duration of one's life.

Unfortunately, the incredibly valuable role that aerobic exercise plays in promoting the overall well-being of a person is oftentimes underestimated, and, even worse, under appreciated. With the onset of such sedentary lifestyles in society, the health and wellness industry is constantly at odds with the fast food and movie industry, as they continually compete for your precious time and money.

Many types of exercises can actually be aerobic in nature, and are performed at varying intensities for, of course, varying amounts of time. Aerobic exercise does tend to meet an optimum benefit to one's body when it is conducted at a moderate intensity for an extended period of time, in order to effectively promote these bodily processes that were addressed earlier in this article. Because everyone's bodies are different in the way they store, and expend, energy, the amount of time one may need to dedicate to aerobic exercise may actually vary dependent on those factors.

Running long distances is perhaps one of the most conducted aerobic exercises, although there are many forms of aerobic exercise that one can engage in. Unlike exercises that require quick spurts of energy, like weight lifting, aerobic exercises typically require a more lengthy approach with time, along with less of an intensity. This is correlated back again to how the body stores, and expends, energy.
