Spartans Biology – Cellular Respiration

Do you like to run, bike, or swim? These all are good ways to exercise.

When you exercise, your body uses oxygen to get energy from glucose,

a six-carbon sugar.

  1. How does your body feel at the start of exercise, such as a long, slow run? How do you feel 1 minute into the run; 10 minutes into the run?
  2. What do you think is happening in your cells to cause the changes in how you feel?
  3. Think about running as fast as you can for 100 meters. Could you keep up this pace for a much longer distance? Explain your answer.
  4. A person who does not usually exercise will find it more difficult to run 3 miles than someone who runs frequently. Why do you think this is so?
