During this process the body takes in oxygen and releases carbon dioxide out of the body and into the atmosphere. Respiration is split into two different categories which are aerobic and anaerobic respiration. These two forms of respiration are both used in producing and storing cellular energy but the slight difference is that with aerobic respiration oxygen is taken into our lungs and works with glucose in order to make energy.

Since it is not as efficient that human body is forced to make its food out of glucose. As stated before this type of respiration occurs when the body is undergoing intense exercise where minimal oxygen is needed and mostly glucose is used. Because of this a fluid known as lactic acid is produced and spread throughout the body causing muscle pulls due to the lack of oxygen.
The respiration rate in humans is affected by a number of different factors such as age, weight and the intensity of exercise. Due to the above factors an individual’s breath and heart rate will be affected. I will be investigating the rate at which an individual’s respiration rate will be affected as they are subjected to intense exercise.
