Aerobic training has the following benefits and drawbacks:

BENEFITS DRAWBACKS
• Increased cardiovascular function • Decreased muscle mass
• Better fat utilization • Decreased strength
• Greater capillarization • Decreased power
• Increased Mitochondrial growth • Decreased speed
• Decreased anaerobic capacity
• Decreased testosterone levels

Anaerobic Training has the following benefits and drawbacks:

BENEFITS                                                               DRAWBACKS
• Increased cardiovascular function                      • Intensity can speed up overtraining
• Decreased body fat
• Increased muscle mass
• Increased strength
• Increased power
• Increased speed
• Increased anaerobic capacity

Studies demonstrate that the adaptations caused by anaerobic training are similar to high volume endurance training, however, this adaptation comes at much lower training volumes! (Similar metabolic adaptations during exercise after low volume sprint interval and traditional endurance training in humans. J Physiol. 2008 Jan 1;586(1):151-60. Epub 2007 Nov 8.)

Group Warm Up at the beginning of class

Endurance Test:

8 X 200 m runs with 1:30 between each run. See how long you can maintain consistency with the first time.

Bring stop watches if you have them.
