  • Is runningan effective aerobic workout? Photo credits: SugarPond

  • ‘Aerobic’ exercises require oxygen (to be present at the cellular level) in order to produce the necessary energy to carry out the activity. The greater your oxygen uptake (VO2), the more energy your body has to fuel and sustain ‘aerobic’ activities. As long as you’re NOT breathless during a workout and can talk throughout the exercise, you are participating in an aerobic activity.Photo credits: kevindooley Reference: Textbook page 189
  • Recommended duration for aerobic activity is at least150 minutes per week or 30 minutes per day. Each aerobic exercise session should be at least 10 minutes long.Photo credit: Jules StoneSoup Reference: Textbook page 308
  • Therefore, men who run comfortably for 10 minutes or longer without getting tired or out of breath are getting an effective aerobic workout. Over time, they will see an improvement in their oxygen uptake. This means, their rate of progression will increase and will be able to run longer and longer.Photo credits: San Diego Shooter Reference: Textbook page 308

  • ‘Aerobic’ exercises require oxygen (to be present at the cellular level) in order to produce the necessary energy to carry out the activity. If your body doesn’t have the oxygen uptake, then oxygen cannot be delivered and utilized to produce sufficient energy. This is called ‘anaerobic’ exercise. Examples include 100, 200, 400 meters dashes.Photo credits: kevindooley Reference: Textbook page 189
  • For unconditioned men, running may bring about breathlessness. They may not sustain activity longer than 10 minutes. High intensity workouts are more demanding & shorter in duration. For them, running may be more of an anaerobic workout, not aerobic.Photo credits: kit oates Reference: Textbook page 189
  • Men looking to get a good aerobic from running should decrease their intensity to a brisk walk or light jog. Or, change their mode of activity to something else that involves large muscle groups – such as swimming or cycling.Photo credits: San Diego Shooter Reference: Textbook page 308
  • For more about what it means to be ‘aerobic’ check out “The New Aerobics” written by Dr. Kenneth Cooper (the guy practically invented aerobics!) Also go to American College of Sports Medicine’s website at http://ACSM.org to get the recommended guidelines for aerobic activity.Photo credits: Here’s Ref: Hoeger & Hoeger (10th ed) Lifetime Physical Fitness & Wellness
