What You Need to Know About the By-Products of Aerobic Exercise

By definition, any exercise that lasts for at least 15 to 20 minutes at an intensity of 70 to 80 percent of your maximal heart rate is considered to be aerobic activity.

Common aerobic activity include swimming, biking and jogging among others.

That said, for your body to take part in aerobic exercise, it needs energy, which comes from oxygen as well as from eating food. In particular, the source in question involves making use of a source called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

In the process of creating ATP, the body also produces a number of by-products too. Most importantly, it must be able to get rid of these by-products so as to keep this process moving forward.

During this energy process, three products are created during ATP conversion while the ones for aerobic activities involve two of them which is carbon-di-oxide and water. As for the ones during ATP conversion, water and carbon-di-oxide along with Acetyll-CoA.

As mentioned earlier, these by-products have to be eliminated in order for this process to continue. For that, both the water and carbon-di-oxide moves into the blood stream while one’s lungs exhales the carbon-di-oxide making room for oxygen. Water, on the other hands, remains in your blood stream.

What one must keep in mind that the effectiveness of the aerobic activity that they perform depends on two factors: the amount of oxygen you inhale but also the ability to get rid of both carbon-di-oxide and water from the place where ATP conversion takes place.

This gets better as you perform aerobic activity as regularly as possible.
