hey faggots, enlighten me on something.
what burns more calories, aerobic or anaerobic exercises?
consider the following: if aerobic exercises use fat as an energy source, and anaerobic exercises use stored sugar. those burned fats don't get as easily replaced as the stored sugars, so whats more efficient? also if you use anaerobic exercises this tends to spur hormone production which are made out of fats.
considering that time invested in aerobic exercises is at least 2x bigger than anaerobic exercises; what is better?
correct me if I'm wrong
>what burns more calories, aerobic or anaerobic exercises?
Depends on the time frame.
Doing a heavy deadlift for 3 seconds burns more calories than running for 3 seconds.
You can run for 10 minutes, but you can't keeping doing deadlifts for 10 minutes.
If your goal is to burn the most calories (e.g. 100+), some form of middle intensity cardio (jogging) is probably best. Maybe high intensity interval training is even better.
If your goal is to burn the most calories from body-kept fat storage, some form of low intensity cardio (walking) is probably best.
Heavyass lifting has also what some may call the "afterburn effect". Basicly your body keeps spending energy to repair the "damage" caused to your muscles by heavy lifting. Cardio does this to a much lower extent.
However, if you're looking for the best way to lose weight then try fixing your diet first and foremost.
