What is Aerobic Potential?

Aerobic potential is the capability of having the physical exercise of low to high intensity that depends primarily on the aerobic energy-generating process. Examples of aerobic exercises are medium to long distance running / jogging, swimming, cycling, and walking. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max) is a measurement of the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can effectively utilise during intense or maximal exercise. Your body needs oxygen when you exercise and oxygen consumption increases as it becomes more intense. It is usually linked to aerobic endurance that many athletes use to determine their overall fitness and it can be a predictor of your potential as an endurance athlete. A higher VO2 max indicates that you will perform better.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Lifestyle Recommendations:

  1. Increase the quality and quantity of sleep. This will help remove cellular by-products which impair mitochondria health.
  2. Reduce sugar-rich food which can increase inflammation and impair cellular function.
  3. Reduce stress levels by practicing meditation techniques. This will reduce cortisol levels which cause excessive energy production and burnout.
  4. Avoid or eliminate smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Smoking causes excessive oxidative stress to cells which subsequently damages them. Light alcohol consumption is actually beneficial to the cells in increasing function, but excessive consumption causes cellular toxicity.

Exercise Recommendations:

  1. Perform constant and continuous aerobic training exercises. Examples of aerobic activities are walking or hiking, jogging or running, biking, swimming, and rowing.
  2. To achieve a training response, you should exercise regularly for 3 to 5 times per week (at least 20 to 60 minutes per session). Fitness level can be improved with as little as 10 minutes of exercise if done 2 to 3 times per day.
  3. Athletes who are not fit (beginners) will need to start with lesser amounts of exercise. You can slowly increase the duration and intensity as your endurance and performance improve.
  4. Incorporate more intense forms of exercise such as HIIT, boxing, and swimming to increase mitochondrial density and energy production.
