    Hiya, I'm kind of stuck. I searched everywhere but everything that I found was a bit too difficult for me to understand. It was things based on A Level, whilst I'm only still doing GCSEs. Anyway, I somehow managed to do the first 2 points, but I'm finding the third one difficult. It states "the processes that allow a muscle to recover after exercises" I know what it is, but I just cannot describe it in enough detail. I really want to get high marks or full marks in my coursework so that's it to the best standard. But I'm struggling. I'm grateful for any help given. Thank you in advance!
