This month, I want to teach you the difference between aerobic vs. anaerobic exercise zones, including when to use them, how to determine which zone you are in and clear up the biggest myth regarding The Fat Burning Zone.
The word "aerobic" means "with oxygen". Oxygen is required to move your large muscles (i.e. quadriceps in your legs) in an exercise motion for a significant period of time. The majority of people's daily exercise should occur aerobically; therefore it's important to understand its properties.
