Even weight lifters, sprinters, and other power athletes can benefit from some endurance training as their recovery from anaerobic events requires aerobic metabolism to burn off the accumulated lactic acid.
Because the aerobic metabolism is, in a sense, maxed out, the only way of obtaining additional ATP is by increasing the glycolitic process in anaerobic metabolism.
Endurance depends on type I fibers and efficient aerobic metabolism.
In this context the (almost) anaerobic metabolism at blastula stage embryo could reflect the existence of multi-cellular organisms in the deep anoxic Earth while the transition to aerobic metabolism at gastrula could be related to the evolution towards tridermic organisms around 2 billion years ago.
The remarkable transition to aerobic metabolism in gastrula-stage embryos potentially reflects evolution toward tridermic organisms by 2 billion years ago.
Good, albeit limited, evidence from vertebrates suggests that animals with low resting rates of aerobic metabolism also have low maximum rates of aerobic metabolism (Rezende et al.
Although the test pace was slow for the more experienced runners, it was chosen to promote steady-state aerobic metabolism in all subjects.
Oxidative stress generated by aerobic metabolism or from environmental sources is a major cause of damage to organisms.
In contrast, host cells remaining in an anaerobic environment provided the opportunity for the endosymbiont to shed its aerobic metabolism and become a hydrogenosome.
As background, ischemia is defined as the inadequate supply of oxygen and nutrients to maintain normal cellular aerobic metabolism.
During exercise of greater than 30 minutes' duration and of moderate to high intensity, there is increased oxygen consumption and thus aerobic metabolism for ATP to be used by the muscle fibers.
The high proportion of moderate- and high-intensity activity, and the sustained elevated heart rates observed during a game, suggest that aerobic metabolism provides a large portion of the energy requirements of the game.
And we have also seen that aerobic metabolism uses fuel from carbohydrate and fat sources producing carbon dioxide and water, while anaerobic metabolism uses carbohydrates and produces lactic add.
It prolongs muscle-glycogen stores, sustains aerobic metabolism, and helps repair damaged tissue after hard workouts.
