Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28
All the systems in the body that are responsible for the breakdown and production of energy work together, more or less. So even if you only do anaerobic training you'll still be improving aerobic stamina. You're just not doing it as efficiently. Just like long distance running will increase anaerobic stamina, just not anywhere near as efficiently. Basically, doing one increases overall stamina.
But overall, anaerobic is usually more useful. And it takes less time to do anaerobic training. The only reason to do aerobic training is if you're training to do something primarily aerobic, like marathon running and whatever it is that lance armstrong does. Someone who does anaerobic training should still be able to run a couple of miles, no sweat. He just won't be able to do it as quickly or as well as someone who trains specifically for aerobic activity. But throw both of those people in a wrestling match, and the person who does aerobic activity will gas first (all other things being equal, of course).
And I say pretty much anything that doesn't involve chopping down trees with your enormous dong while stroking your beard, or battling a platoon of spartan warriors with your bare hands while banging hawt chicks, or both, is unmanly. Not something I say that should be taken literally, lololololololol
