Physical resistance

Physical resistance
Resistance can be defined as the psychophysical capacity that allows us to perform an activity or effort effectively for as long as possible. In other words, I can also count on the ability to withstand long-term efforts, resist fatigue and recover quickly.

The resistance is the oxygen consumption, which will dictate the type of resistance present at the time of doing this activity or effort. There are two types of resistance to aerobic resistance and anaerobic resistance.
  • Aerobic resistance

It is nothing more than the ability to make a long-lasting, low-intensity effort over a long period of time, keeping the oxygen supply and consumption in balance.

  • Anaerobic resistance

It is the ability to perform efforts or activities of short duration, but of a high degree of intensity, there being an imbalance between the contribution and the consumption of oxygen.
Within the anaerobic resistance we can find anaerobic alactic resistance and anaerobic lactic resistance.

Anaerobic alactic resistance is the ability to maintain a maximum intensity effort for as long as possible, using the ATP molecules in the absence of oxygen and without lactic acid production at the end of the process.

And the lactic anaerobic resistance is similar to the anaerobic alactic resistance, but in this case lactic acid is produced as a residue after having consumed ATP molecules in the absence of oxygen.

As can be seen, the volume of oxygen in blood and the energy sources from which we will obtain the ATP molecules are fundamental when carrying out physical resistance work.
