Difference Between Aerobic Versus Anaerobic Exercise

Aerobic means “with oxygen” and refers to exercise that is of an intensity that allows sufficient oxygen and nutrients to be transported via the blood to the working muscles.

On the other hand Anaerobic exercise means “without oxygen” the intensity is so great that the body simply can’t supply the necessary oxygen and fuel fast enough. And good example is during the 100m sprint, the runners run so fast that they can barely breath.

When a runner starts jogging his system is on aerobic mode when he starts sprinting his system switches to anaerobic mode.
