Anabolic and Catabolic workouts
Exercises can be categorized into two types of workouts: anabolic and catabolic. Each has a different effect on your body but will ultimately lead to fat loss. You can increase your muscle mass while shedding fat through anabolic workouts. By contrast, you can reduce your overall body mass through catabolic exercises. Perform a combination of both to achieve fast and long-lasting weight loss.
To reach an anabolic state, focus on strength training, which will help increase muscle mass. During strength training, you perform exercises that offer resistance using weights and machines. These exercises break down muscle tissue. When you sleep or rest, new and more muscle fibers develop to replace the broken ones.
Reaching a catabolic state involves hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin. These are useful in burning fat and calories. Most catabolic exercises involve cardiovascular techniques, usually lasting at least 20 minutes.. This results in a loss of total body mass because more catabolic hormones are released
Performing both anabolic and catabolic exercises provides you with variety in your workout routine, which will prevent boredom as well as continuously shock your body to continue shedding fat and burning calories. Your workouts will also be more intense if you use both approaches alternatively
An excellent example is Circuit training,which alternates weightlifting and cardiovascular exercises for maximum weight loss.
