Don’t usually comment, but this guy talks so much shit
First of all he said that, and i quote "any muscle can be anaerobic" then 2 posts later "You don't have aerobic and anaerobic muscles, just aerobic and anaerobic exercise" slight contradiction.
"Anaerobic exercises (any muscle can be anaerobic) are short bursts of intense power that do not access the cardiovascular system" Do you even know what the cardiovascular system is???
"Anaerobic exercises(any muscle can be anaerobic) are short bursts of intense power that do not access the cardiovascular system, but focus on muscular output and using glycogen stores."
The energy system you would utilise during short bursts would the phosphocreatine system and it uses creatine as fuel not fucking glycogen, you utilise glycogen from 15secs to possibly 3 minutes in some elite athletes, that defo isn't a "short burst"
Why do you try and bullshit folk with every fitness/sport related post?
“Any muscle can be anaerobic meaning, you can do an anaerobic exercise. In terms of actual muscle construction, it would be slow twitch, fast twitch A, fast twitch B. As you probably know, anaerobic literally means without air.”
A muscle isn’t purely made up of slow twitch oxidative fibres or fast twitch glycolytic fibres or fast oxidative glycol ytic fibres, it is made up a mixture of all 3. Typical human distribution would be about 59% slow twitch 39% fast twitch fast twitch b 2% .
Elite marathon runners have significantly more slow twitch oxidative fibres, at about 79% slow twitch oxidative fibres
“ATP-PC after 10 seconds” not trying to start an argument but you utilise A.T.P by itself for about 4 seconds, then your body starts to re-synthesise A.T.P by using the phosphocreatine system, which lasts for about 10 seconds, this is why i said 14 seconds, common misconception that the atp-pc only lasts for 10 seconds. Also some elite middle distance runners can run anaerobically for just under 3 minutes.
“The cardiovascular system moves blood around the body, and hence oxygen. You need to oxygenate your muscles during any aerobic exercise”
The reason I quoted you on this is because you said the body doesn’t use the cardio vascular system when working anarerobically , when obviously it is constantly working, even when working anaerobically. I understood what you meant and there was no real need for me to quote you on that.
Why are we talking about fibre types, A.T.P and the body systems the creator just asked for some help with regards to running a half marathon, I should have tried and helped him instead of trying to start a argument.
