What is a physical activity that would help your heart and lungs become stronger as you increase your aerobic and anaerobic activity?
Whether you are walking a mile or moving slowly to help someone carry a heavy object, your body must regulate oxygen levels. Your body uses oxygen for energy as aerobic activity, whereas anaerobic exercise makes the body produce energy without oxygen. Certain activities will strengthen both aerobic and anaerobic systems at the same time.
Crew Member Mission:
- safely carry weighted objects from the Exploration Area back to your Base Station to improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness.
- record observations about improvements in aerobic and anaerobic fitness during this physical experience in your Mission Journal.
