Aerobic and Anaerobic
There are two main types of exercise:
Aerobic exercise uses large groups of muscles contracting at relatively low rates, meaning it can be maintained for a long time.
- Fast walking
Anaerobic exercise happens when there is a higher rate of muscle contractions in a shorter period of time.
- Resistance training
Racquet sports such as tennis, squash and badminton, or even non-racquet sports such as soccer, have elements of Anaerobic and Aerobic activity.
