The inability to maintain force of contraction after prolonged activity Due to: Inadequate release of Ca 2+ from SR Depletion of CP, oxygen, and nutrients Build up of lactic acid and ADP Insufficient release of ACh at NMJ Not the same as central fatigue – CNS changes “wanting to quit” Muscle Fatigue

Oxygen debt - breathing heavily for a period of time after stopping exercise Oxygen debt Replenish CP stores Convert lactate into pyruvate Reload O 2 onto myoglobin which stores O 2 in the SR Oxygen Consumption After Exercise

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
