M2 – discuss the probable homeostatic responses to changes in the internal environment during exercise. I will be discussing how the body experiences a number of changes during exercise. Experts say the body experiences a number of changes when walkers take a one hour – walk. 1-5 minutes Energy-producing Chemicals are released throughout the first few steps to help keep you walking. Your muscles get heated as your heart rate goes from about 70 beats per minute (bpm) to 100 beats per minute (bpm). Your joints release lubricating fluid to help you move which decreases stiffness. Instead of the 1 calorie per minute you burn when you sit around, your body now burns 5 calorie per minute. 6-10 minutes Now you born 6 calories per minute as…show more content…
You create slight injuries to the fibres of your muscle tissue as you exercise. These injuries makes your body to adjust and change by building back bigger and stronger fibres as the area get better through a process called hypertrophy. Overtime, these internal changes can be seen apparently as bigger muscles, particularly if weight is placed on pectorals, abdominals, arm muscles like biceps and triceps, and leg muscles. Cardiovascular changes Strengthening your cardiovascular system is one of the most vital benefits of exercise, as far as your overall health is concerned. Exercise increases your heart rate, which strengthens your heart HDL (high density lipids) “good" cholesterol and reducing your triglycerides, which can help lessen the buildup of arterial plaque. These benefits decrease your risk of developing heart disease in the future.Pulmonary changes Exercise not only increases your heart rate, it also increases your breathing rate. Like the heart, as your lungs work harder, they become stronger. This increases your ability to take breaths during rest times as well as during exercise. Stronger lungs mean you can similarly take more oxygen in. Oxygen is an important component for the formation of energy for the cells. Exercise may help your lungs fight the growth of lung cancer, according the National Cancer
