Muscle Fatigue
occurs during long periods of vigirious exercise and causes muscles to work less effciently.
1 of 8
Glycogen
insoluble polymer formed from glucose and stored in muscles. It can be converted back to glucose and used during in vigirious exercise.
2 of 8
Aerobic Respiration
Occurs when oxygen reacts with glucose and releases energy. Carbon dioxide and waters are the products of reaction.
3 of 8
Respiration
Is a series of chemical reactions that realease energy from glucose and other nutrients. It takes place in the cells of living organisms.
4 of 8
Anerobic respiration
releases energy from nutrients without oxygen. Only partailly breaks down Glucose, therefore produces less energy. Produces Lactic acid.

Muscle Fatigue
Occurs during long periods of vigorous exercise and causes muscles to work less effciently.
6 of 8
Lactic Acid
Builds up in muscles during annerobic respiration.
7 of 8
Oxygen Debt
Amount of Oxygen needed to oxidise the lactic acid that has built up in the muscles during annerobic respiration.
