I’m a huge fan of exercise – big shocker, I know.
In general, doing some exercise is better than doing no exercise, however, the type you choose can go a long way in determining the results you get.
As a personal trainer I’ve seen way too many people only do aerobic training. They’ll hop on the elliptical for an hour or a half hour a few times a week and that is it for exercise.
Am I happy that they are exercising? Of course I am.
Are there some benefits you can get from aerobic training? Without a doubt there are.
Are there also some negatives that are associated with aerobic training? Yup, indeed there are.
Charles Poliquin, a strength and conditioning coach I regard as one of the most knowledgeable people in strength and conditioning in the world, wrote an article entitled The (Many) Negatives of Aerobic Training a couple years back.
This article is a fantastic resource showcasing what many people don’t know about aerobic training. Take a look and I’m sure you’ll learn something new.
Have a great day!
