Aerobic Workout is any type of cardiovascular conditioning. It can help burn fat, improve heart health and even help reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. But what about those stubborn areas of fat that seem impossible to get rid of, no matter how much you work out? That’s where polymeric workouts come in.
Polymeric workouts are a type of high-intensity interval training that alternate between short bursts of very strenuous activity and periods of relatively light activity or rest. This type of workout is sometimes also referred to as “plyometrics” or “shock training.”
While there is no definitive way to do a polymeric workout, a typical session might involve sprinting for 30 seconds followed by a minute of walking or jogging. This pattern would be repeated for a total of 20 minutes.
The key to getting the most out of a polymeric workout is to push yourself as hard as you can during strenuous intervals. This means reaching (and hopefully exceeding) your anaerobic threshold.
The anaerobic threshold is the point at which your body can no longer produce energy aerobically (through oxygen) and must start producing energy anaerobically (without oxygen).
