The effect of lactic acid on Muscles, Tendons and Ligaments
  1. The lactic acid system is designed to supply very quickly a supply of ATP for short intense exercise
    1. Aerobic respiration does not produce lactic acid, anaerobic respiration does.
      1. Anaerobic respiration occurs when there is an insuficient supply of energy to the muscles through aerobic respiration. It produces lactic acid through the incomplete breakdown of glucose to ATP. It is therefore a bi-product of
      2. Pain in the muscles is due to the lowering of pH by hydrogen ions making the muscle environment more acidic. This is also often referred to as muscle fatigue. This fatigue can often become so intense that you have to stop exercising
