Both should be included in the exercise workout. An aerobic exercise is an activity designed to improve the respiratory and circulatory systems of the body. Exercisers should do aerobic activities to develop cardiovascular fitness. These types of activities generally do not cause one to get “out of breath.” Usually this type of activity can be done for a long period of time without stopping. To do aerobic exercises, warm-up with stretches, begin slowly to gradually increase heartbeat rate and exercise at a steady, comfortable pace for 10-15 minutes. Running, swimming, and walking are examples of aerobic activities. An anaerobic exercise is an activity done quickly for a short period of time. The body is worked so hard that the exerciser must rest for a brief period of time to replace oxygen or “catch his/her breath.” One must rest for a short period of time after doing anaerobic exercises and sports. Do anaerobic exercises from 10 to 40 seconds, and then rest for 30 to 90 seconds. Repeat this process from 5 to 15 minutes. Anaerobic exercises help build endurance for sports such as basketball, football, and soccer. 1. In this article the author focuses on: A. The relationship between exercise and fitness B.

Children whose curiosity survives parental discipline are invited to join our university. With the university, they go on asking their questions and trying to find the answers. In the eyes of a scholar, that is what a university for. some of the questions which the scholars ask seem to the world to be scarcely worth asking, let alone answering. they asked questions too minute and specialised for you and me to understand without years of explanation. If the world inquires of one of them why he wants to know the answer to a particular question he may say especially if he is a scientist, that the answer will in some obscure way make possible a new machine or weapon or gadget. He talks that way because he knows that the world understands and respects utility. But to you who are now part of the university, he will say that he wants to know the answer simply because he does not know it, the way the mountain climber wants to climb a mountain, simply because it is there. Similarly a historian asked by an outsider why he studies history may come out with the argument that he has learnt to respect to report on such occasions, something about knowledge of the past making it possible to understand the present and mould the future. But if you really want to know why a historian studies the past, the answer is much simpler, something happened and he would like to know what. All this does not mean that the answers which scholars to find to their enormous consequences but these seldom form the reason for asking the question or pursuing the answers. It is true that scholars can be put to work answering questions for sake of the consequences as thousands are working now, for example, in search of a cure for cancer. But this is not the primary scholars. For the consequences are usually subordinate to the satisfication of curiosity.
