8 Things to Know About Aerobic Capacity #TheFitHappyMinute

There are three components of exercise: resistance training, flexibility (actually, it’s more appropriate to call it “mobility,” but that’s a subject for another blog on another day), and cardiorespiratory training. Resistance-training exercises help improve muscle strength, which can elevate resting metabolism (the number of calories burned while at rest), and functional performance in a variety of activities. Flexibility or mobility exercises can reduce muscle tension and improve joint range of motion, which are essential for enhancing overall movement efficiency. And finally, cardiorespiratory training improves the ability to both move oxygen and nutrients to work muscles and to remove metabolic waste, which allows muscles to continue to perform a particular activity. Every person starting a workout program will have a unique goal, but each goal requires a different level of focus on each of these components.
