Effects of Strength Training : 1 - The muscles :

The body calls glucose (which has been stored by the body as glycogen from the foods we eat) to provide the energy needed to contract muscles. It also uses adenosine triphosphate or ATP, but the body has only small reserves. After using these reserves quickly, the body needs extra oxygen to make more ATP. More blood is pumped to the working muscles to provide extra oxygen. Without enough oxygen, lactic acid forms instead.


Lactic acid is usually eliminated from the body within 30 to 60 minutes after completing a session. During your workout, small tears form in the muscles, which will help them grow and become stronger once repaired. Pain is a signal that there are changes that occur in the muscles, it usually lasts a few days.
