the bigger your muscle becomes, bigger consume of energy after exercise. After aprox. 20 min of exercise you will use your energy from the fat, and if your intake of energy is less than your consume, is just math. Muscle doesn't build fat (it burns it) and muscle weighs more than fat.

Your creatine kinase (CK) levels are related to muscle breakdown. After any exercise, particularly a strenuous workout, your CK levels will be much higher due to the strain placed on the body and consequent muscle breakdown. CK levels can rise uncontrollably, usually indicating a type of muscle dystrophy is occurring. If the levels do not return to normal, it signifies that muscle breakdown has not ceased. This in turn reduces the muscle's ability to function, creating a weakness.

Asthma affects pulmonary (lung) function which in turn affects cardiac function. Reduced cardiac output is one of the more serious aspects of a severe acute asthma attack. This will result in an elevated pulse even without exercise. Exercise for asthmatics should be done after a medical evaluation and commenced in stages. Do not rush out and commence a high energy aerobic workout. Gradual development of exercise tolerance should be a goal for all "active" asthmatics.
