Aerobic exercises generally mean Cardio and workouts that are not related to picking up weights and Anaerobic exercises means picking up weights and building muscles, but that doesn’t mean that free hand exercises like Push-Ups, Pull-Ups, Sit-Ups and Weightless Squats are also included in Aerobic exercises. They are also a form of Anaerobic exercises because in those exercises you are using your body weight to train your body and building muscles.

But during the exercises where you need to pick up weights for building muscles, you sometimes get injured like pulling a ligament, muscle tear, pain in the joints.
