The man in the previous question could have chosen an anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting, to try to lose weight. Why is an aerobic exercise, such as bicycling, a better choice?

    Bicycling will require that a higher percentage of ATP energy be produced by aerobic respiration; thus, fat molecules will be consumed by both glycolysis and the Krebs cycle, resulting in more-rapid weight loss..
    Bicycling requires stronger muscle contractions than does weight lifting; thus, more ATP must be produced, requiring higher fat-molecule metabolism.
    Anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting, requires that the fat be converted first to sugar before it can be used in the process of glycolysis, thus slowing the process of weight loss.
    Aerobic exercise causes more oxygen molecules to be combined with fat molecules to produce carbon dioxide.
