Have you ever wondered why kids can walk around all day and never get tired? A recent study suggests that her muscles, like elite endurance athletes, resist fatigue.
The study, published yesterday in Frontiers in Physiology, urged young men, inexperienced men and endurance athletes to do high-intensity exercise, then saw how quickly their muscles fatigued and recovered
The researchers brought the participants You literally had to find out that the boys' muscles did not tire easily – even though they were at a similar level to the endurance athletes.
" You can recover faster than you Elite athletes … maybe that's why children recover so fast when they play sports or do sports. "
Are children as fit as endurance athletes?
Professor of Health Sciences Tim Olds at the University of South Australia said the study was interesting ̵
"What it found is the way they recover more than endurance athletes than untrained adults," said Professor Olds, who is not affiliated with the study
To understand why children have such good stamina and recovery, you need to understand how the body generates energy.
"There are two ways to produce energy: one is aerobic … the other is anaerobic."
Anaerobic energy production produces lactic acid, explained Professor Olds, and when there is a high level of lactic acid in the muscles accumulates, this causes exhaustion.
"But children do not have as sophisticated anaerobic systems as the average adult … that's why they do not produce much lactic acid, and that's why they do not start after repeated seizures (exercise)."
The study also showed that the blood collection by the boys was faster than in endurance athletes, so they could recover quickly.
Implications for Young Athletes
As He also explains why 10-year-old boys are so tireless, Professor Blazevich said the study could be useful to show where the training efforts should be focused on young athletes.
