    Fatigue and recovery:- This resource explores fatigue and recovery looking at: lactic acid accumulation, glycogen restoration and oxygen debt. Lactic acid accumulation When is lactic acid produced (intensity)? There is always some lactic acid being produced by your body. However, we don't notice it due to the aerobic system breaking it down. Lactic acid accumulation occurs as a result of the body's inability to deliver sufficient oxygen. The result is that the body then has to rely on anaerobic glycolysis. What effect does it have on performance? Lactic acid inhibits the action of enzymes responsible for the breakdown of glucose. Therefore, glucose available or stored cannot be used. Lactic acid also inhibits the action of calcium ions on the actin filament (see sliding filament theory). This makes muscular contraction impossible. What is the effect of aerobic glycolysis on lactic acid levels? T
