Metabolism (metabol = change) Once in the body substances are constantly being built up or torn down. Anabolism (anabolic = synthetic, building up) Catabolism (catabolic = degradative, tearing down) •Cellular respiration or cellular metabolism •Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) : metabolic rate when at rest, could be consider your base metabolic rate

Cellular Respiration The primary purpose of the respiratory system is to provide oxygen to the cells for cellular respiration or metabolism. The rate of oxygen consumption is equal to the metabolic rate of the individual (metabolic rate increases, so does O2 consumption) In this lab we measure metabolic rate by measuring O2 consumption.
