Heart Rate
Increases - Oxygen and glucose move around the body faster
7 of 11
Breathing Rate
Increases - More oxygen enters and more carbon dioxide leaves the body
8 of 11
Conversion of glycogen to glucose
Increases - Glucose is needed for respiration so conversion is quicker
9 of 11
How does an increase in breathing rate help your muscles?
It helps to give the muscles the glucose and oxygen they need to work efficiently, also removing carbon dioxide
