@ Hoppy do you mean when there is a build up of lactic acid in the body and then you're regaining your breath to break the lactic acid down to two other new products?

If so, its..
Lactic acid + Oxygen (the oxygen you get is from breathing faster and deeply) = Carbon Dioxide + Water! 

If you need any help on anything else, do feel free to ask! (:

i do , ill type them here 

There are two types of respiration 

  • Aerobic respiration , this is where glucose + oxygen are combined together to produce energy .It happens in the mitochondria 

glucose + oxygen produces energy + carbon dioxide + water 

  •  Anaerobic respiration , here glucose is only used to produce energy 

glucose produces energy ( only a bit ) + lactic acid

This happens in muscles if they don't get enough oxygen for aerobic . it produces much less energy and as lactic acid builds up it can cause cramp

After exercise  more oxygen is needed to remove the lactic acid this is called the oxygen debt
