After exercise you may feel short term effects like: Blood flow because of increased volume of blood that is pumped to muscle tissue. Muscle fatigue is short-term decline in the ability of a muscle to generate force. Another way to describe muscle fatigue is as the short-term inability to continue to repeat muscular contractions with the same force. Muscle exhaustion when exercise continues through muscle fatigue without rest after time it can lead to muscle exhaustion. Muscle damage often happens, because of over-stretching without a proper warming-up or no warming-up before intense exercise.

Cramp uncontrollable and very painful muscle contraction. After some time passes then long term effects on muscles takes place like: Muscle size increases mainly due to muscle ability to adapt to stress over a period of time which increases them in size.

Muscle coordination increases when doing exercises which require skill and technique e. Blood supply to muscles increases due to long-term exercise by that improving delivery of various nutrients, minerals and vitamins to muscles and making them more effective and faster at regenerating after injury or workout.

Short term effects such as: Blood flow — after exercise you can notice that muscle tissue warm muscle is bigger than cold muscle, because of blood flow into them. It can increase by up to 25 times, because muscle requires more energy and oxygen. Muscle fatigue — is the decline in ability of a muscle to generate force. It can be a result of intense exercise, but abnormal fatigue may be caused by barriers to or interference with the different stages of muscle contraction.

There are two main causes of muscle fatigue. Muscle pliability During short term exercise the muscle pliability is increased, meaning that your muscles are more flexible if they are pliable. If the muscles are pliable this can reduce the risk of you getting an injury. This is why it is good to warm up rather than going straight into sport as when your muscles are warm they can decrease the likelihood of you getting an injury.

Range of movement The range of movement increases during short term exercise of the musculoskeletal system. We will produce more synovial fluid. The range of movement increases due to the joints becoming warmer during exercise, this increases the bodies temperature and results in the synovial fluid becoming thinner and warmer, making movement more efficient.

The warmer they become the further they can stretch, and will allow joints to move more freely. This happens because exercise makes our joints move quickly, therefore we need more synovial fluid in the joints to allow and assist movement, overall making it faster and greater movement. Short term effects of exercise on the Musculoskeletal system Muscle fibre The muscle fibre micro tears as an effect of short term exercise. Each muscle is made up of thousands of individual fibres, as the muscles work most slightly tear.

Muscle fibres during exercise pull against one another in result if it is intense exercise or for a certain period of time, this is why you ache after exercise. Every time a fibre tears it repairs itself and grows back thicker and stronger, making more dense fibres.

Resting after exercise is good for your microfibres to repair these micro tears which will also result in your muscle size gaining more muscle after healing as the microfibres are rebuilt up into stronger muscle fibres. Whilst exercising our joints need to move quickly and fast, this is why we need the more of the synovial fluid to allow and assist movement in our joints when moving our joints quickly during exercise.

Different types and intensities of exercise can cause various short-term changes and adaptations to your muscles -- skeletal, cardiac and smooth -- and the nervous system. High-intensity aerobics can improve your heart muscle's strength, while intense strength conditioning decreases your sensitivity to muscle soreness.

Privacy FAQs

The effects of exercise on muscles include both short term and long term changes due to physical exercise: Short term effects of exercise persist during the activity itself and perhaps for a short time afterwards. Long term effects of exercise are on-going and can apply for much longer lengths of time including between physical activities.

After exercise you may feel short term effects like: Blood flow because of increased volume of blood that is pumped to muscle tissue. Muscle fatigue is short-term decline in the ability of a muscle to generate force. Another way to describe muscle fatigue is as the short-term inability to continue to repeat muscular contractions with the same force. . Exercise involves a series of sustained muscle contractions, of either long or short duration, depending on the nature of the physical activity. Effects of exercise on muscles can be considered short-term or immediate, both during and shortly after exercise; as well as long-term, lasting effects.

The immediate effects of exercise on the muscular system include muscle contraction, higher blood flow to muscles and increased muscle temperature, according to the BBC. Regular training increases bone width and density, strengthens muscles, tendons and ligaments, and increases flexibility at joints. Short term: During exercise your body moves faster, meaning the joints have to work harder. This causes increased production of synovial fluid, which is secreted around sy novial joints. To increase the range and ease of movements.
