Physical exercises for the improvement of the anaerobe effort's capacity determine a series of changes, due to the chemical reactions specific to the anaerobe metabolism: the content of mioglobyne from the skeletal muscles is higher, the increase of muscle possibilities to spend carbohydrates and fats, the increase of the number and mass of mitochondria from the skeletal muscles fibers, the enzymes activity is high and the red muscles fiber hypertrophy.
