Summary

Anaerobic Exercise: Key Facts and Information

  • Anaerobic exercise involves breaking down glucose in the body without using oxygen.
  • Anaerobic exercise is shorter in duration, but more intense than aerobic exercise.
  • Glycolysis is the biochemical process involved in anaerobic exercise.
  • Anaerobic exercise leads to a buildup of lactic acid.
  • Anaerobic exercise can build endurance, muscle strength, and power.
  • Fast twitch muscles operate using anaerobic metabolic systems.
  • The anaerobic component of an exercise can be determined by measuring the lactic acid formation in muscle mass.
  • Aerobic exercise includes lower intensity activities performed for longer periods of time.
  • High energy phosphates are stored in limited quantities within muscle cells.
  • Anaerobic glycolysis exclusively uses glucose (and glycogen) as a fuel in the absence of oxygen.
  • Anaerobic exercise increases an individual's basal metabolic rate (BMR).
  • Examples of anaerobic exercises include sprints, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and strength training.
