What is the best way to increase my anaerobic threshold? I work out 5 days a week, currently.

Intervals: Interval training can increase your anaerobic threshold. Since intervals involve high intensity bursts with brief rests, they can challenge your anaerobic system and train it to adapt. Gradually increase the length of time of the high intensity portions over time, and you should see your anaerobic threshold increase. ...Read more

Anaerobic (Definition)

It may be in reference to organisms that grow in oxygen poor environment. Or to those that simply do not need oxygen to thrive. It is also used to refer to certain types of execises (ie weight lifting) that are short in duration but high in power out put. They are the companion (not the opposite) if aerobic exercises which are longer duration, less intense and ...Read more

Which muscle fibers are involved during aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise, respectively?

Which muscle fibers are involved during aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise, respectively?

Muscle use: the same muscles work both aerobic and anerobic. Aerobic exercise uses oxygen and can be performed for long periods, anerobic uses stored energy and can only be performed in short bursts ...Read more

Weightloss: That's the one billion dollar question. Look at all the weight loss adds... No free lunch here! steering your diet to high protein and low carbs is a good start, aerobic exercise helps speeding up caloric loss. You can modify your anaerobic exercise with faster sets and less recuperation time to boost your overall metabolism... ...Read more

Can you tell me how the muscles of the iris change the size of the pupil?

Can you tell me how the muscles of the iris change the size of the pupil?

Radial: The iris muscles which respond to more and less light, are radial in position. The resting position is the normal size of the pupil in normal light and with less light, the muscles contract and open the pupil. Since they are radial (like the spokes on a bike), they open and close the iris in a circular pattern. Very clever mechanism. ...Read more

If your your ab muscles change at a rapid rate, is it possible to develop stretch marks?

If your your ab muscles change at a rapid rate, is it possible to develop stretch marks?

Stretchmarks post tu: I have on occasion seen stretch marks of the legs or shoulders with rapdi growth and/or weight training. However, I have not observed this with abdominal muscles. It is far more likely you well develop well established flexion creases if you repeatedly flex (sit ups). ...Read more

Muscle (Definition)

It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
