Hello, and thank you in advance.
I have a question for my biology paper, (that is due tomorrow by the way…) If anyone is willing to help me by giving some scientific responses to this following statement from my Bio book, it would be greatly appreciated. 🙂
*"Aerobic" exercise is activity that stimulates breathing and blood circulation, but does not exceed their ability to deliver oxygen to the muscles. Propose a hypothesis that explains why aerobic exercise is more beneficial than "anaerobic" exercise, which demands more oxygen than the heart and lungs can easily deliver.*
So, I understand everything about anaerobic and aerobic respiration. As well as the process of lactic acids being released (due of lack of oxygen to the blood) when anaerobic exercised is being performed.
So, basically what I am asking is, WHY IS AEROBIC EXERCISE MORE BENEFICIAL THAN ANAEROBIC EXERCISE? AND HOW COULD IT BE STATED IN HYPOTHESIS FORM? please? thank you.

Well, exercising aerobically increases your bloods capacity to carry oxygen. Why do you think that is?
It also builds tolerance and muscle tone, why do you think that is?
What could possibly be the benefit of having increased blood flow (i.e. oxygen transfer) over longer periods of time?
What does aerobic excercise do that anaerobic doesn’t?
Thought you’d get off easy didn’t you 🙂

Thank you very much. Your reply actually DID help me. I am writing the I’m just going back to the beginning of my paper to edit my thesis now. And so, again, thank you. It was highly appreciated. 🙂

Oops, I meant to say, "I am writing the thesis…etc…"
