It depends on what type of exercise the person is doing. There are low and High intensity aerobics, non-aerobic weight lifting. Think of your body as a car. To go faster you burn more fuel (glucose), you need higher air intake through the carburator(lungs), you need coolant to maintain safe operating temperature (blood stream), you need a faster working fluid pump (heart). The diffenence between weight lifting and low intense aerobics is that they are slower and thus can burn more slow processed fats. Glucose(sugar) is a faster processed fuel for high intense activity, and that is why you need to carb load for them.

What happens DURING exercise?

During exercise, you breathe in a little amount of oxygen, and give out lots of carbon dioxide. This is why afterwards, you are left breathless. Also during exercise, your dominant muscle/s in that exercise do not have the power to keep going. Your heart tries its best to pump as quick as it can (pulse rate increases) to get all the blood round your body to do its job (circulation rate).

What happens to pulse rate during exercise?

During exercise, your muscles require more oxygen and they need to get rid of the built up lactic acid. Your heart rate, measured by your pulse, increases to push more blood volume through your body.
