Rogue and Aerobic Training for Newbies

Most people assume that aerobic exercise is specifically suited for women's fitness the same way that weight lifting appears more suitable for men's fitness. What few people realize, however, is that this form of exercise is essential to both men and women. There are many other misconceptions about cardio that have been circulating in public, but hopefully the facts below will serve to enlighten you about the real deal behind this type of exercise.

Rogue Exercises do not always consist of dancing routines -

A lot of guys understandably shy away from aerobic exercise because most types of it seem to be just another form of dancing. You have to understand, however, that dancing-like routines are not all there is to aerobics. It may only seem like that way because women largely make up the population in your fitness club, and as such your fitness club is just offering what the majority wants.

If so, you can sign up for a personal training program that could introduce you to others and more "manly" types of exercise that will work you heart and lungs like boxing or kickboxing. Also, if it makes any difference, "cardiorespiratory, cardiovascular exercises or cardio" is just another term for aerobics. You could always refer to your routine as such if it makes you feel any better.

Rogue Training also causes a number of other changes that increase your aerobic capacity:-

(1) Increases the number of capillaries feeding your muscles so that blood is delivered more effeciently
(2) Increases the number of red blood cells and the total volume of blood, thus increasing the total amount of hemoglobin greater, allowing more oxygen to be delivered
(3) At the cellular level, improves the ability of muscle cells to use aerobic metabolism
(4) Increases both the number and size of mitochondria in the muscle cells
(5) Boosts the activity of enzymes within the mitochondria that are needed for aerobic metabolism and fatty acid breakdown
(6) Increases the availability and transport of fatty acids to the mitochondria
(7) Increases triglyceride storage and oxidation in the muscle
(8) Builds up the muscle cells capacity to burn fatty acids to produce ATP (Adenosite Tri Phosphate). Using fatty acids instead of glycogen delays the onset of muscle fatigue
(9) Increases the ability to store glycogen

By the way, just before few hours ago - I came across one website @ Rogue Training by BodyHEAT
