I have read that aerobic means 'with oxygen' and is any kind of exercise which forces the heart and lungs to work harder to supply the oxygen to the muscles. Aerobic exercise includes activities like running, cycling, swimming, fast walking, aerobics classes and dancing. Aerobic exercise burns calories and improves general fitness and stamina. Anaerobic means 'without oxygen' and is any exercise that requires short bursts of power, such as sprinting or lifting weights. anaerobic exercise can be sustained only for short periods of time. In reality, most exercise is a combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercise. The amount of each is dependent on how hard and fast the exercise proceeds.
