Aerobic Respiration
This supplies the oxygen needed. It can be maintained for long periods of time through low intensity

Glucose + Oxygen = Energy + Water

Anaerobic Respiration
Exercising at high intensity the cardiovascular system can not supply enough oxygen needed. Without it lactic acid is produced although it is a mild poison, it causes build up and causes the muscle pain and cramps
