Aerobic?

Postby Waffles » Wed Dec 12, 2018 12:53 pm

I’ve read in order to train your aerobic system, you have to do high duration of cardio while maintaining a heart rate of 130-150 bpm. Can you still train your aerobic system just by doing high intensity interval training even though your heart rate will easily be over 150bpm?

No, because you need long duration to get the best aerobic training effect.

If you train at high intensity, yes your aerobic system will be taxed, however the nature of high intensity is that you will tire quickly and you will not be able to sustain long duration.

The way to train the aerobic system is to go for a minimum of 45 minutes. Keep it low intensity. Keep it easy. It won't feel like you're working hard, but you will reap the benefit.

Just try walking fast/moderate pace.

That will do it.

Just to give you a little bit more information--

When you train aerobically for long duration, the body starts to make huge physical changes. It goes well beyond just optimizing the energy systems within cells. Besides changes to your heart and lungs, your tissues actually get more vascularized to better supply oxygen. Only long duration will give you this stimulus.

I could also be beneficial to know that "hard cardio" is not recommended
ex - circuit-training with weights, long-cycle etc - you simply tax the wrong systems

This is not to say that is not beneficial, but to have the enzymatic adaptations and such you need slow, steady cardio to build this :)

Thanks again for the info. SinisterAlex, I always assume that you need to do hard cardio for adaptation in order to improve your cardio, similar to weight lifting.

Have a read for what I hope is a decent explanation of the different systems.
