Aerobic Exercise - FAQ
is aerobic exercise?
The word aerobic literally means "with
oxygen" or "in the presence of oxygen." Aerobic exercise is any
activity that rhythmically uses large muscle groups. Aerobic activity increases
the heart, lungs and cardiovascular system's ability to deliver oxygen more
quickly and efficiently to the body. As the heart muscle becomes stronger and
more efficient, a larger amount of blood can be pumped with each stroke thereby
decreasing the number of strokes required for oxygen transport. An aerobically
fit individual can produce more work for a longer period of time and recover
never exercised before. Where do I begin?
Start slow. Walking is the best way to begin a program.
Start with a stroll for a mile or so and gradually increase the distance. when
you acheived a comfotable distance then increase the speed to a comfortable
stride. Eventually, you might want to try another activity such as jogging,
running or even aerobic or step classes. The best aerobic program is the one you
enjoy the most because that's the one that you'll do the most.
