    it's not necessarily about the body as a whole
    the term op mentioned is used in relation to muscles.. that's how they cope when we make an extra effort

    oxygen debt is when you're short of oxygen and usually happens after exercise

    oxygen is required to neutralise the lactic acid produced during anaerobic respiration

    When anaerobic respiration occurs with aerobic respiration an oxygen debt builds up. This means your body is short of oxygen and usually happens after exercise. It builds up because glucose is not completely broken down to form carbon dioxide and water. Some of it is broken down to form lactic acid.
