Differences between aerobic and anaerobic exercise in terms of efficiency on metabolism?

Differences between aerobic and anaerobic exercise in terms of efficiency on metabolism?

Aerobic=efficiency: Aerobic metabolism yields about 30 atp (energy molecules) vs 2 atp molecules by using the anaerobic. This means aerobic is about 15 times more efficient. ...Read more

What are the differences between aerobic and anaerobic exercise in terms of efficiency on metablolism?

Variable: Typically aerobic exercise will burn calories during the time of exercise and will cause a temporary increase in metabolism after exercise. Anerobic exercise- such as weight lifting, also burns calories during exercise, but not as much typically, but the process of increasing muscle mass improves basal metabolism to maintain muscle. ...Read more
