Alactacid debt (PC Stores): it takes approx 3 minutes for PC stores to fully recover and 30 seconds for 50% recovery . The process requires approx 4 litre of O2.
Myoglobin recovery : Myoglobin is found in muscles and transports O2 to the Mitochondria for aerobic metabolism. Myoglobin loses O2 during exercise. It takes 0.51 seconds to replace O2 stored in myoglobin and the process takes 1-2 minutes.
