anaerobic exercise

A general term for exercise consisting of slow rhythmic movements against a force—e.g., calisthenics, such as push-ups, sit-ups, weight lifting—which evoke minimal increases in heart rate. Anaerobic exercise is said to strengthen muscles, increase joint mobility and reduce risk of musculoskeletal injury.

(an'ār-ōbik ek'sĕr-sīz)
Physical activity that alternates short bursts of energy with periods of rest.

It may be because they perform the traditional Indian exercises involving both aerobic as well as anaerobic exercises. During exercise they maintained higher muscular strength and aerobic power throughout, As the exercise progresses, anaerobic work capacity tends to be higher [22], so that the general physiological profile of the successful pahalwan is of one with high anaerobic power, high anaerobic capacity, high muscular endurance, average to above average aerobic power and normal flexibility [23].
This inability to implement endurance activities may be one of the reasons for Iran national soccer team's failure in some tournaments, and it might be due to improper implementation of specific patterns of aerobic and anaerobic exercise for soccer.
Despite possible glycolytic enzymatic changes-with training, children do not normally show increments in maximal blood lactate levels after anaerobic exercise training.
The research aimed to evaluate the effect of 8-week aerobic and anaerobic exercise on leptin levels, estrogen, progesterone, glucose, insulin, body weight and fat under the skin in non-athletic middle-aged men with pre-test research design with two experimental groups (1 and 2) and a control group was performed.
Anaerobic exercise refers to physical exertion where the energy required to produce this activity is provided independently of oxygen.
The majority of investigations on the effects of synchronous, asynchronous or oudeterous (neutral in terms of motivational qualities) music tend to focus on aerobic rather than anaerobic exercise. Indeed, the efficacy of music in the context of submaximal aerobic performance has been well studied [2,4-8], and most findings reported positive effects of music on the athlete's perceived exertion and performance [4,9,10].
In fact, the [La] response is not a good indicator for the alactic anaerobic exercise. In high performance swimming training with human, Maglischo (10) considers it inappropriate to use [La] as an index for the anaerobic alactic intensity since power exercise (high load and short duration) is not sufficient to raise excessively the [La] as occurs in lactic anaerobic exercise.
