Anaerobic exercise

Anaerobic exercise unlike aerobic exercise does not involve use of oxygen to generate energy. This type of exercises are used to develop muscles so that the person can do great in short duration and high intensity activities.

Aerobic exercises are generally running, walking, bicycling and swimming. These are done for longer durations of time with less effort compared with an anaerobic exercise. Oxygen is used up to produce energy in aerobic exercises. This has many long term health benefits.

Unlike aerobic exercise anaerobic exercises are not performed for long term benefits but for short intense bursts of energy needed by muscles for performing wonderful feats. Many athletes and bodybuilders resort to this type of exercises.
