  • Thank you for some great tips.
  • BILLTHOMSON
    I've learned a lot about this type of exercising.
  • Very good information.
  • If you won't believe in yourself, why should anyone else?
  • Interesting information!

  • Anyone who is on a Beta Blocker cannot reach a target heart rate because the medication kicks in and suppresses the heart rate. So a different criteria must be used.
  • I wish there were more circuit training workouts in the workout generator. I get frustrated when it draws a blank when I enter what I have for equipment and what I am looking for.

    Excellent article, with good basic overview of aerobic exercise.

    I do agree that aerobic exercise is important, but from practical experience as a personal trainer, I believe that the guidelines should emphasize resistance training over aerobic training. That is not to say that aerobic training is not important (it is), it's just that resistance training can actually give you more benefits than aerobic training.

    Resistance training done in a circuit format will give you the obvious strength benefits, but it will also give you endurance benefits, and if you're doing it through a full range of motion, flexibility benefits. On the other hand, if a person performs aerobic exercise exclusively, yes, their aerobic endurance will improve, but their strength and flexibility will get worse.

    Furthermore, if aerobic exercise is performed excessively and exclusively, it will actually cause fat gain at some point. I actually wrote a blog about it right here:

    I understand that there are space limitations, so overall, I want to re-state that it's a good basic overview of aerobic training.

  • So, not the "perfect" article . . . but ten times better than my best would ever be.

    There is never ever too much info regarding aerobics!
