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.
B vitamins, magnesium and co-enzyme Q10 all boost aerobic metabolism
, helping the cells in the body use oxygen.
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.
