The Respiratory System

Adaptations- Increased number of alveoli, increased strength of intercostal muscles, increased strength of the diaphragm and increased lung volume (due to increased tidal volume and vital capacity). Benefits- Stronger respiratory system, you can take in more air & extract oxygen more effectively. Therefore your body can provide more oxygen for transport to the working muscles.
