Exercise is largely divided into aerobic and anaerobic exercise. It is classified according to how it creates and supplies the energy source required for exercise. Although the energy production of exercise occurs at the same time, it is distinguished because there is a difference depending on the intensity and duration of exercise. Even the same type of exercise can be divided into aerobic and anaerobic exercise according to the intensity of the exercise and the exercise capacity of the exerciser.
Aerobic exercise is an exercise that requires continuous energy to obtain energy through oxygen metabolism. It is also an exercise that is effective in weight control by oxidizing fat in the body. Examples include walking, jogging (about 8 km/h), power walking, running, stationary bicycle exercise, swimming, and jumping rope. In general, it uses large muscles that can metabolize a lot of oxygen, and it is also an exercise loved by dieters because it is effective in burning fat. Learn about aerobic exercise.
For obese people, which type of aerobic exercise is effective, low-intensity or high-intensity?
– Effect of different intensity of aerobic exercise on nonalcoholic fatty liver in high-fat diet-induced obese rats, 2022
This study investigated the effect of low-intensity and high-intensity aerobic exercise on the relief of fatty liver. As a result of the study, high-intensity aerobic exercise induced a reduction in body fat compared to low-intensity aerobic exercise. In other words, low-intensity aerobic exercise is more effective for obese people.
In addition, the importance of strength during aerobic exercise was also suggested. In this study, it was found that despite performing low-intensity and high-intensity aerobic exercise, the exercise group did not lose weight compared to before exercise. In addition, the weight of the non-exercise group increased compared to the pre-exercise group, but the weight of the exercise group was similar to or decreased. This means that aerobic exercise suppresses weight maintenance and weight gain, even when exercise is not accompanied by a diet.
In conclusion, low-intensity aerobic exercise can be efficiently used for obese people, and it can be recommended as an effective exercise method for obese patients with reduced cardiorespiratory endurance.
Does half-body bathing after aerobic exercise help you lose weight?
– Effects of half-body bathing recovery after aerobic exercise on body temperature, growth hormone and lipids, 2019
After aerobic exercise, we mostly enjoy half-bath. This is because the fatigue after exercise can be washed away in warm water. After finishing aerobic exercise and enjoying a half-bath, I sometimes feel that my body feels lighter. So, does half-body bathing after aerobic exercise really help you lose weight?
In conclusion, in this paper, high-temperature half-bath after aerobic exercise does not bring significant results in weight loss. However, the body temperature, GH ((Growth Hormone), HDL (High Density Lipoprotein), and FFA (Free Fat Acid) showed positive results. It suggests that it had a positive effect by continuously maintaining the elevated body temperature through half-bath.
Can aerobic exercise help prevent dementia?
– Effect of aerobic capacity on the relationship between dementia-related gene (Apolipoprotein e4) and cortical response, 2009
As the benefits of aerobic exercise, there is a saying that ‘the brain works well, the memory is good, and the study is good’. Let’s see how aerobic exercise affects the brain.
The study was conducted on adults with an average age of 20 and suggests the effect of aerobic capacity on cognitive function and cerebral neuroelectrical responses in people genetically exposed to the risk of developing dementia. ‘Physical activity or exercise improves brain function and cognitive function’, ‘In people with dementia-related genes, anatomical and functional decline in the brain begins decades before the onset of dementia’, and ‘Physical activity The degree of maintaining or improving cognitive function is four times greater in the group with the dementia-related gene (ApoE e4 genotype), together with three previous studies.
Research suggests that aerobic exercise has a positive effect on our brains. Specifically, it was found that aerobic exercise had a greater effect on the group with dementia-related genetic traits. This is because a reward strategy was mobilized to increase the amount of attention resources when performing tasks in areas of the brain that generally had low mobilization power to compensate for the defects of the group with dementia-related genetic traits. In addition, it was concluded that aerobic exercise plays a role in speeding up information processing regardless of genetic traits. As brain function in people carrying dementia-related genes begins to decline decades before dementia onset, it is hoped that aerobic exercise in adulthood may reduce the risk of developing dementia in old age and thus benefit from exercise.
Before realizing the ‘beauty’ that each pursues, how about doing aerobic exercise to realize the ‘health’ of our body including the brain? Without overdoing it, any aerobic exercise is good, such as a light walk or jogging while breathing in the night air. Let’s start aerobic exercise ‘from today’ and ‘from now’, not ‘from tomorrow’, hoping to take care of ‘health and beauty of body and mind’ this summer.
