If more energy is produced during aerobic respiration then why anaerobic resoiration occurs in our muscles during vigorous physical exercise?
Asked by ayush | 23rd May, 2014, 02:37: PM
During vigorous exercise, anaerobic respiration occurs in fast-twitch muscle cells of humans, which have a lower capacity for storing oxygen than slow-twitch muscles.The fast-twitch muscle cells run out of oxygen quickly and have to switch to a lactic acid fermentation process to create oxygen and energy.
