The effect of pure aerobic training on aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
  1. G. Keren,
  2. Y. Epstein


    Twenty men (Group I) and twenty-seven men (group II) took part in a 3-week training course. The training was aerobic and consisted of marching and hiking. The intensity of the training regimen in Group II was greater than for Group I. The maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max) increased significantly in both groups, more in Group II than in Group I, though no significant change was found in anaerobic capacity. It can be concluded that aerobic training cannot induce improvement in anaerobic capacity.
