Aerobics is the type of physical activity, that, when you are doing the activity, OXYGEN is available for the oxidation of glucose.

When oxygen is readily available for oxidation of glucose, the oxidation or burning of glucose is very efficient. Thus ENERGY is released efficiently too.

The by products of Aerobics is carbon dioxide ( which is expired during breathing ) and water ( which comes out as sweat ).

Thus while doing physical activities aerobically, we can do it for long periods of time, without feeling tired. What is needed is the glucose and oxygen.

Examples of Aerobic activities are brisk walking, jogging, cycling, swimming and aerobic dance.

Aerobic exercises if done consistently and regularly, will improve STAMINA and is recommended for weight loss management.
