How Our Bodies Respond to Exercise

During exercise,your muscles needs additional energy as the breathing rate and volume of each breath increases to bring more oxygen into the body and remove the carbon dioxide produced. The heart rate also increases, to supply the muscles with extra oxygen and remove the carbon dioxide produced.

If the exercise is vigorous and Prolonged, lactic acid level builds up and produces an oxygen debt. Glycogen reserves in the muscles become low as more glucose is used for respiration, leading to muscle fatigue.

After you've finished exercising, everything that was elevated during the exercise will now slow down, whilst everything that was slowed during exercise will speed up. During this process there is typically an over-reaching effect, whereby the body doesn’t just go back to “normal” pre-exercise levels, but it actually overcompensates.

The benefits of regular exercise are so profound, expect to see improvement in your physical health, mental health, financial health and social health.
