Here it mixes with fluid returning from the aerobic zone and bacteria remove most of the nitrate and nitrite ions by converting them to harmless nitrogen gas, which escapes back to the atmosphere.
Dance class, rehearsal, and performance zones of intensity are displayed in relation to the dancer's VT1 and VT2, as follows: class at low aerobic zone of intensity (V[O.sub.2] values at [+ or -] VT1); peaks of V[O.sub.2] of the center-floor session of the class and the rehearsals at moderate aerobic zone of intensity (between VT1 and VT2); and performance at high aerobic zone of intensity (V[O.sub.2] values just before VT2), or anaerobic zone of intensity (V[O.sub.2] values above VT2).
Research hints that longer-duration moderate-intensity exercise, such as aerobic zone biking, swimming, and running, generates increased appetite shortly after exercise, and this mechanism may work through decreasing leptin and raising ghrelin, while higher-intensity, short-duration activity, like sprinting and interval training, may have a short-term appetite-suppressing effect by lowering both leptin and ghrelin.
By layering the 22-ft deep oxygen rich aerobic zone over the top of the anaerobic zone, any odor causing gases, such as hydrogen sulfide, are oxidized into odorless compounds.
ZONE 2: is the cardiovascular or aerobic zone. Working within the aerobic zone maximises benefits to your cardiovascular system.
Taking into account that a quarter lasts 8 minutes, the measurement of blood lactic acid reaches the value of 8.09 mmol, which means that the work zone at the end of the first quarter is V[O.sub.2] max (to reach V[O.sub.2] max, one of the methodical-metabolic conditions is that the effort should last over 3 minutes, so that the body uses energy in the upper aerobic zone).
The aerobic group pedaled in the aerobic zone for 40 minutes.
Carbon oxidation and nitrification are achieved in an aerobic zone that spans one straight run of the 260-ft ditch.
