Aerobic exercise burns fat
True, fat does not start burning immediately, but only when glycogen stores are depleted. The first 20 minutes of training, fat almost does not burn, and only after 40 minutes of training, fat becomes the main source of energy!

Aerobic exercise burns a lot of calories

As a result, if you follow a diet, you can lose weight. What’s the catch? It would seem that you run 40 minutes a week and lose weight. But the fact is that the body very quickly gets used to aerobic exercise. After 2 weeks, you will be spending much less calories on a half-hour run than in the beginning.

Losing weight using only aerobic exercise is extremely difficult.

If during the first month, subject to regular training and adherence to a diet, you can lose 2-3 kg, then the process will slow down.

If we talk about “purely” aerobic training, then they contribute not only to the burning of fat, but also the loss of muscle mass, which is highly undesirable. Bigger doesn’t always mean better. It’s important not to overdo it with aerobic exercise! Excessive aerobic exercise is perceived by the body as a shock, triggering a hormonal response that leads to muscle breakdown. More specifically, the level of cortisol, which causes muscle breakdown, rises and the level of testosterone, which is responsible for muscle growth, decreases.

At the same time, the health benefits of moderate aerobic exercise are clear:
  • Increase the overall endurance of the body
  • Prevents cardiovascular diseases
  • Reduce cholesterol levels
  • Increase hemoglobin levels
  • Improves the condition of the central nervous system
  • Increase immunity
  • Help cleanse the body of toxins
  • Helps cleanse the skin
