    Due to oxygen debt-
    Anaerobic respiration produces an oxygen debt. This is the amount of oxygen needed to oxidise lactic acid to carbon dioxide and water. The existence of an oxygen debt explains why we continue to breathe deeply and quickly for a while after exercise.

    I don't think you understood my question.. My question is why do the levels of lactic acid increase, not why the breathing rate increases.
