  • Anaerobic Resiration
    • used if there's not enough oxygen
    • when you do hard exercise your body cant supply enough oxygen to your muscles
    • without oxgyen
    • incomplete breakdown of glucose
      • makes lactic acid this builds up in the muscles and gets painful
        • causes muscle fatigue, muscles get tired and stop contracting as well
          • blood flowing through your muscles removes lactic acid
