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.
