What is an aerobic exercise?

Aerobic means “with oxygen” or “in the presence of oxygen.” It is any training which rhythmically uses large muscle groups. Aerobic training increases the heart, lungs and cardiovascular system’s ability to carry more oxygen quickly and efficiently to the body. As the heart muscle becomes stronger, it will be able to pump a larger amount of blood with each stroke, hence, decreasing the number of strokes needed for oxygen transport. An individual who is aerobically fit can train longer and recover faster.
