Aerobic Training: Cold Weather Walking and Running


Assuming you are properly prepared, and neither overdressed or underdressed, your walking/running form and pace should be little different than during the rest of the year. However, when you finish your workout you should transition immediately into your cooldown activity and go inside for your concluding stretches. Standing around wet with perspiration in cold temperatures is not advisable, as this can result in quick cooling and tightening of your muscles.

In summary, an appropriate winter running workout may be approached as follows.

1. Check the weather conditions and temperature and dress appropriately. However, if the sidewalks/roadways are icy or slippery with snow, postpone your exercise session until they are clear.

2. Perform four to eight minutes of warm-up activity for your legs (e.g., knee bends), midsection (e.g., trunk curls), and upper body (e.g., push-ups).

3. Step outside and promptly begin your walk or run. Start slowly, and progressively increase your pace to the target intensity.

4. As you finish your training session, slow down gradually and continue with four to eight minutes of cooldown activity.

5. Without stopping, go indoors and finish your workout with a few stretching exercises.

Note: Be sure to drink sufficient fluids before and after your training session.

Of course, you may always choose to exercise indoors on uncomfortably cold days. But, if you prefer the fresh air of the great outdoors, these guidelines should be u...

Aerobic Training: Run For Your Life: A Twist on Aerobic Exercise


Have you ever seen a fat sprinter? Not me. And without mentioning any names, have you ever seen a fat aerobicizer? I see them daily. More people perform aerobic exercise than any other fitness activity, yet many of them remain, at various levels, basically unfit. Why this is and what can be done about it? I will answer shortly, but first, let’s look into the basic "science" of aerobics.

Getting Started
Aerobic exercise presents itself in many forms. First, you have walking, followed by maybe jogging, then running. To get you off your feet, you can ride a bike, tug on a rowing machine, or jump into one of those fancy machines you see advertised on TV. Whatever the activity is, if you continue it long enough, you’ll obtain aerobic conditioning. Remember though, exercise should be enjoyable and refreshing. Forget that "No Pain, No Gain" mentality; it’s simply not true for the life-extension enthusiast. You should start your aerobic exercise at a pace that’s comfortable with your beginning level of condition, then gradually accelerate the tempo and frequency of your workouts as you adapt to your new lifestyle. In a short time, you’ll begin to recognize many health benefits.

What is Aerobic Exercise?
Depending on the activity or task at hand, the body innately selects any one of two basic energy sources as fuel. For powerful and explosive tasks that are interrupted with rest intervals; like that in weight lifting, football, etc., the body preferentially chooses carbohydrates as the dominant fuel source; this is called "Anaerobic Metabolism". For long sustained uninterrupted activities, performed at submaximal efforts, the body will utilize oxygen and fat as fuel sources; this is referred to as "Aerobic Metabolism".

Sustained activities are better fueled with fat and oxygen as these two energy sources are the most dense and abundant fuels--you never have to worry about running out. 1 In contrast however, running out of carbohydrate fuel [in the form of glucose or glycogen] can happen within seconds of an intense power burst.

The analogy I use when teaching the body’s energy system is that of a rocket ship. As we know, rockets are launched into outer space with several power, or fuel, boosters. The first booster is used to explode the rocket--and it’s massive weight--up off the ground. Once that booster is depleted of its fuel, it disengages and the second booster propels that rocket even further into the sky. Once the final booster is reached, the rocket is dependent on a fuel source that will carry it throughout the rest of its mission, which is a very long time in comparison to the duration of the previous boosters.

Like the rocket ship, your body acts in a similar manner. At first, when activity begins, your body relies on immediate and fast burning fuel sources--the carbohydrates. If you repeat an explosive burst after taking a replenishing rest, the body will again select carbohydrates as fuel for that chore. However,...

General Issues in Training: Aerobic Weight Training


Even today after years of research and application, some still persist that weight training lacks aerobic benefits. The fact is lifting weights increases blood pressure and heart rate (just to name two). This elevation from the cardiovascular system represents some aerobic stimulus. But with the existing definition that aerobics are a continuous nonstop activity performed for an extended period of time (minimum of 20 minutes), while maintaining a heart rate between 70% - 85% of maximum, and the chief energy sources being oxygen and bodyfat, conventional weight training cannot claim to offer similar aerobic benefits.

For those who are interested in obtaining the benefits from both world’s; Aerobic stamina with low percentages of bodyfat and Anaerobic strength with impressive muscular shape, the manner in which weight training workout’s are conducted is what links the two together.

Conventional methods for lifting weights recommends that each exercise set is followed by an adequate rest period before proceeding onward. During conventional means, heart rate and blood pressure elevates during each exercise but dramatically reduce during inter-set rest intervals. (Refer to Chart A). These "application-rest" cycles are followed until all exercises and sets are completed for each workout. This method enforces plenty of intentional non-active time to replenish ATP (and other anaerobic fuel) and to psyche-up for those heavy weights but prevents the aerobic system from effective participation.

Circuit Training has been around for decades and offers an unlimited matrix of applications and benefits. This system of working-out is performed differently both mentally and physically. In this method, the weight training applicant performs one set with one exercise then immediately performs another exercise in succession without rest; one-right-after-the-other. Exercises are sequenced in a variety of combinations which isolate single-muscles, regional groups of muscles, or total body training all in one workout.

Since muscles can only contract for long periods of time when sufficient amounts of oxygen are available, mental focus during circuit training becomes directed toward the proficiency of the heart and lungs; as opposed to just the muscles during conventional training. The cardiovascular and respiratory systems feed our working muscles with oxygen filled blood that is eventually fueled by bodyfat. (I say eventually because the ATP, CP and LA anaerobic fuel cycle has to become significantly depleted before the body will burn fat as workout energy).

So the obvious aerobic element missing in conventional weight training is that the cardio/respiratory system is given a rest in between exercises enabling the ATP-to-LA cycle to remain the chief energy suppliers. It’s more like an interval elevation/deceleration providing some but not optimal aerobic benefits.

By performing circuit training, you’ll never give your heart or lungs a ch...
