View Full Version : Lack of aerobic condition
01-07-2005, 02:44 PM
Hi, I was wondering if you guys and gals could help me with something.
Lately I'm feeling like I seriously need to improve my aerobic condition.
For instance, just because I did 2 sets of squats to failure, I ended up quite dizzy and faint.
Also, when I play soccer or basketball, I'm starting to feel in the same way and I need to stop doing exercise.
What can I do to improve my aerobic condition and make my body adapt to this type of exercise?
Maybe some low-intensity running each day will do the trick?
Long duration cardio is the key to improve stamina and what not. I've found that I had the best results with running. I find it hard to spin the pedals fast enough to have my pulse raise. I just finished cutting I used to do cardio 2x a week. Basicly each cardio session it was a competition I tried to beat my previous distance record. It can be not the best method for cutting, but hell I didn't plan to get to the single digit bf so I thought I'd improve my stamina on the way. My record was 10 km (6 miles?) in 45 mins. I had 2 sessions of 45mins each week.

First start off by improving the foods you eat, then workout later after eating, like 1-1.5hrs after eating. Same thing happens to me when I do those huge compound too soon after eating. But it also could be that your conditioning is not up to par, so jog a little longer for warmup everyday, until you can do an HIIT. You need high intensity jogging for conditioning to really improve.
If you are trying to improve your performance in soccer and basketball, it would be most efficient to do so by playing soccer and basketball (specificity).
For resistance training, one way to improve your conditioning to decrease your rest times between sets.

Well, my diet is pretty well. Currently, I do workouts in the morning, 1-1.5 hours after breakfast, and it usually consists of a shake (oatmeal, whey, milk, peanut butter, and canola/rapeseed oil), a whole wheat tortilla with low fat cheese, and a big banana.
I guess the best thing I can do right now is start running and upping the time I run each day, and do some stationary bicycle plus some soccer.
Thanks guys... and Tuf too /forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif
