The term aerobic means with oxygen. The transport of oxygen enhances combustion of fat. The term cardiovascular refers to an activity in which the heart is the direct beneficiary of effort; cardiovascular workouts that take place in the treadmill, stationary bike, the steeper or track, improve cardiac function, but hardly influence the fat loss. In contrast, aerobic workouts closely related to lipolysis, but not with the heart; somewhat overlap both activities, but produce different results.
The cardiovascular work has a positive effect on the pre-competition phase; the cardiovascular area ranges between 155 and 200 beats per minute, while the aerobic zone is left between 125 and 175 beats per minute, that is, between 60 to 85% of maximum heart rate (MHR) which is directly related to age. As age increases the FCM is reduced, but also in terms of physical inactivity and poor living habits, so that aerobic threshold trained a person but can be higher than that of a younger to person but less habit cardiovascular.
At the definition stage overlooking the championship, and we should have a solid muscle base, abandoning the idea of adding more muscle during this phase, trying to lose the least amount of possible mass while eliminating fat. It is advisable to start cardiovascular activities 10 weeks before the competition, with less duration and intensity at first, gradually increase them until the date of the competition, so yes, always depending on the state of way at all times, needs and caloric intake and features of the athlete.
We endeavor to maintain a level of effort to keep us in the work area or aerobic threshold steadily until at least the first 20 minutes. At the sixth week, the alteration of heart in the cardio frequencies allow us to break the deadlock. Sessions should not exceed 30-35 minutes long; is preferable to a daily 30 minute session to perform a two hour; results and bodily functions are different.
Having a little more scientific, aerobic training is responsible for that fatty acids are mobilized to mitochondria in muscle cells, that through Beta-oxidation is used in the Krebs cycle for energy production. This change in energy metabolism will be responsible to stop using the muscle and liver carbohydrate carbon and energy source.
We can also avail ourselves supplements for fat loss. The one we have is more in vogue ACE (caffeine, ephedrine and aspirin) combination in the pharmaceutical formulation (not marketed as formula, but it is the combination of three drugs), or its herbal versions. Such power supplement has been shown to facilitate the conduct of fatty acids for use as an energy source and thermogenesis to activate (increase in cell temperature), which facilitates fat burning.
Another supplement used is L-carnitine; has great supporters or detractors ferrous … from my point of view, not the effectiveness of the eca, but in some people it has proven to be a considerable help; in most cases, the results have been pretty scarce or absent.
Obviously, depending on the person and other personal characteristics, will coach which shall at all times be aware of the changes it undergoes physical effects of the competitor to make the appropriate adjustments. Most of the time, the best tool is to listen to your body.
