What is tae bo aerobics?

TaeBo is a form of cardiovascular exercise popularized in the late 1980s by Billy Blanks, an American Tae Kwon Do expert. It means "Tae" from TaeKwonDo, which is mostly attributed to the kicks in the exercise and "Bo" from Boxing, which accounts for the punches thrown. People also call it Total Awareness, Excellent Body Obedience.


This form of fitness regimen is fun and energizing as it is an intense workout that incorporates kicks from kickboxing, choreography and electronic music from hip hop, forceful punches from self-defense and martial arts, stretching and holds from yoga, and constant movement from aerobics.

Why would you get a bright red face from aerobic exercise when other people do not?

When your body starts exercising it undergoes various physiological changes in order to try and maintain homeostasis (keeping everything inside the body constant). During exercise your muscles require more oxygen so that they can carry out respiration and synthesis ATP (energy). This requires the heart to beat harder and faster (according to Starling's Law). A secondary effect is the release of adrenaline. This causes local vasodilation (blood vessels get wider), in effect reducing the total peripheral resistance to blood flow (think about water flowing through narrow and wide tubes - its faster in the wide ones).

The difference you are asking about could be due to many factors - the proximity of the dilated blood vessels to the skin; the number of blood vessles; and the extent to which they dilate.

Does Anaerobic exercise burn more more calories than aerobic exercise?

Answer:

Anaerobic exercise takes a lot out of you which is mainly sweat. The feeling of soreness from your body means that your exercising is coming in handy. For long story short, the more soar you feel, the better the outcome of calories being loss, but make sure to slow down for a while to keep the beating of your heart well sustained.

Answer:

Yes, it does, momentarily, but it's not sustainable. Over any significant length of time (more than a few minutes), aerobic exercise will burn more calories, simply because you can do it much longer. For example, with practice, a reasonably fit middle-aged man can burn 750 calories in a one-hour session on a bike. With anaerobic exercise, you can burn calories at (roughly) a 30% higher rate, but you can only do it for about 10 or 20 minutes.

The objectives of anaerobic exercise are to build muscle mass, raise metabolic rate, and raise lactate threshold. It's not primarily intended for weight loss. The most effective regimen for weight loss and overall fitness is a combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercise, such as interval training.

How do you lose weight on your abdomen without losing weight on your butt?

  • Cardio aerobic exercise will lower your body fat percentage and where you lose will depend on your personal body type however it is likely that you will lose some fat all over. If you find that you are losing too much "behind" do some anaerobic exercises with your glutes. The more weight you use the larger the muscle will become. Reps with low weight (or none as in sit-ups) will give you lean muscle on your stomach and heavy weights lifted only a few times will give you larger glute muscles.
  • You cannot selectively lose weight in one area and not another. Do weight lifting exercises that are specific to that area to bulk up the muscles.
  • Unfortunatly, when you lose fat, it goes from everywhere. You should do cardio exercises that lose the fat. But if you want a big rounded bum, do alot of squats and bum-toning exercises.
  • You can do squats and diet. The others are true, but this way you butt will still be nice sized, round and more firm. You could loose weight by dieting, then you shoudl do squats anyway.
  • You cannot. There is no such thing as spot reducing. Let me compare two simple things, fat and blood. You know the fat in your thigh? It isn't called thigh fat, it's fat! You know the blood in your arm? It isn't called arm blood, it's blood! When you go to a blood bank and donate your blood you not only lose it in your arm, but also the rest of your body. The same goes with exercise. If you went for a jog in the morning you burn fat in all parts of your body and therefore you will get thinner everywhere. Sorry.
  • As stated above you can not spot reduce NATURALY, however the only way to remove fat from one area of your body is liposuction or similar surgery. That's is it plain and simple. I wouldn't recommend liposuction, only if you need to remove a little fat or extra skin from your stomach, then it is a viable option.
  • You cannot spot reduce. The best way to lose excess body fat is to combine a quality protein, low carbohydrate diet with cardio exercise (such as brisk walking), and weight training exercisesto build muscle.

What are the parts of an aerobic exercise routine?

The parts of an aerobics routine can be different. If you are talking about a sport aerobics routine then there are certain things you have to do. These things include high leg kicks, push ups, jumping jacks, pivots, the splits and a press. There are also different levels in sport aerobics. The higher levels involve doing more harder things.

Is 800m race aerobic?

It is a fairly anaerobic race due to the fast speed you are going at the hole time. I guess you could say the first 200m are aerobic because you are getting into the race, but you are going so fast (if your good enough) to have it be all run without oxygen.

What exercise is best for correcting rounded shoulders and improving overall posture?

This is a very common problem in the increasingly sedentary culture in which we live; and it can actually be amplified by incorrect weight training practices. On the most basic level, what happens is that your chest muscles become too tight and your back muscles become too stretched, thus your shoulders are pulled inward by your tightened chest muscles...

...One major cause of this is too much sitting in a hunched over position, like right now as you sit, (or stand) slouched and hovering over your laptop, desktop or mobile device. As you can imagine, this position activates the chest muscles and stretches out the back muscles. This becomes a problem when you do this consistently for long periods of time. The problem because exaggerated by doing a disproportionate number of weight lifting exercises that involve pushing muscles (i.e. chest, triceps, shoulder) compared to exercises that involved the pulling muscles (i.e. back, biceps, rear deltoids).

The fix?

  • Stretch your chest and the other pulling muscles (see "shoulder dislocates" link, and also look at the "chest stretches" link)
  • Do more pulling exercises (see "Weight Lifting" link below for general weight training info; the site also has an exercise database)
  • Take frequent breaks (e.g. every 15-20 minutes) when sitting down for long periods of time and do a little stretching if possible; otherwise, just walk around or stand up for at least a few seconds. This may seem useless, but due to the components of the Law of Repetitive Motion, adhering to this advice will greatly reduce the negative impacts of extended periods of slouching by decreasing the amount of time you are in a bad postural position
  • Stop slouching over so much! What are you, the Hunchback of Notre Dame?! ;-P
  • See a qualified physical therapist, or similar type of doctor
AnotherBoxing. Abdominal workouts also aid in strengthening postural problems. AnotherGood posture is mainly a result of keeping your chest up, which is done by the lower back (lumbar or erector spinae) muscles. Work them with deadlifts, good mornings and weighted hyperextensions. Shrugs and deltoid raises, and incline press.

What could cause a fluttering sensation in the chest with an associated dropped heart beat?

These are called palpatations. There are several reasons that can cause you to have these sensations. Stress, age, weight, diet, drug use, faulty heart valve- any number of possibilities. A doctor is the only one who could determine the cause of your symptoms. This is a cardinal sympton of Premature Ventricular Contractions. (PVC's) for short. The atria fire normally but the ventricles misfire or fire too often giving you the sensation of fluttering. This is quite normal in the average adult.

How can you increase muscle power?

Practice movements that are more explosive. In other words, train for power production. For example, do power cleans instead of standard barbell rows. Be aware, though, that there is a trade-off: explosive exercises are more dangerous. If you do not really need them, do not take the higher injury risk. Unless you are a competitive athlete, you do not need them.

What is the effect of exercise on the bones and joints?

Short term effects Defining the size of our bones by increasing it:

The main effect of exercise is that it builds bone strength. The condition of bones may be improved by exercise as bones respond to mechanical stresses. Anything which puts stress on the bones causes it to get thicker and increases in weight because of the stress and are therefore able to take more stress and pain. Impact exercise promotes bone growth and strengthens our bones.

Increasing the ease with which we use our joints and the flexibility: The more exercise we do, the better condition our bones and joints are in, but too much exercise can have a negative effect, it can cause wear on the joints and cartilage making them weak and brittle. Exercise makes our bones and joints easier to use, as long as the exercise is with moderation. Bones also become more efficient in movement because of exercise.

Strengthen our bones and joints: Impact exercise promotes bone growth and strengthens our bones. If we subject our bones to weight bearing activities or we exert stress on our muscles, things we don't normally do, our bones will adjust to be able to sustain the weight and stress. As the weight increases, our bone adjust even more to sustain the greater weight and they adjust by getting bigger and stronger. Exercise helps keep the joints flexible, the muscles around the joints strong, bone and cartilage tissue strong.

Long term effects Delays Muscle loss (Sarcopenia): Exercise helps to maintain muscles because in aging, muscles which are not used are lost, but regular exercise keeps them in use and available for use.

Prevents Arthritis: Moderate exse done regularly can prevent cartilage degeneration. This may therefore decrease the risk of developing arthritis.

Reduces risk of injury: Being able to withstand more pain and stress means we are unlikely to suffer from injuries as much as those who don't exercise. Exercise helps kids lower their risk of persistent chronic pain in the future. Exercise reduces the risk of falling, which causes fractures. Falls are one of the main causes of death for people over 65. Exercise helps build balance and flexibility, which reduces the risk of falling. People who exercise also heal faster when injured.

What is the bio-mechanics in aerobic exercise?

As you work out, your body needs more energy. It takes more oxygen and nutrients from your blood, so your blood must move more to continue to supply your body with the resources it needs. This means your heart needs to pump harder, and just like when you lift weights your arm muscles get stronger, when your heart pumps harder its muscles get stronger. So people who have good cardio fitness have a heart that is very strong and can easily pump a lot of blood when you need it.

What is the average bpm for a 13 year old girl?

bpm or beats per minute refers to heart rate. At 13 you are nearly considered an adult by medical standards. Some childrens hospitals (in Dallas, Tx for instance) sends all 13 year olds to the adult ER. Depending on your weight, how 'in shape' you are and other factors the average bpm would be 60-100 with an average of 80 - 90 or so. Anything under 120(while at rest) is nothing to be worried about.
