Asked in Exercise
What builds up in muscles after a few seconds of intense acticity?
Lactic acid is produced by muscles during intense activity. The human body has a way of removing the lactic acid. When the production of lactic acid overcomes the body's ability to remove it, a side stitch commonly occurs. Regular exercise can improve the body's ability to cope with lactic acid buildup.
Asked in Health
How is lactic acid released from the body?
Lactic acid is released by the slow, natural process of muscle relaxation after the heavy exertion that caused the lactic acid buildup, or you can speed up the release by massaging the muscle groups affected or using a heating pad (or combine the heating pad and massage therapy for an obviously faster recovery from lactic acid buildup). However, be sure to drink plenty of liquids as the release of lactic acid simply puts it into your blood stream. Without flushing the lactic acid out with proper hydration you could cause general exhaustion and an otherwise 'sick' feeling from the toxins released from your muscles during a massage or heat therapy session.
