OXYGEN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM When you breathe in, oxygen enters your lungs and is absorbed into your blood. The oxygenated blood is pumped around the body by the heart.
OXYGEN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM The muscles in your body use the oxygenated blood as ‘food’. The deoxygenated blood travels back to the lungs to receive more oxygen, then the cycle starts again.
Different Oxygen Intake Increases the size of the heart The size of your lungs will increase Your lung capacity will increase
Benefits of improving the Oxygen Transportation System Lowers you resting heart rate (The lower you resting heart rate the fitter you are) After exercise the fitter you are the faster your pulse will return to the starting level
