    We don't spoon-feed.

    Explain your thoughts. We'll help.

    ^ yup that is reasonable...!

    When I was doing aerobic exercise I was making my body consume oxygen to create energy and oxygen is required to break down glucose which the basically the fuel to create energy. While I was doing anaerobic respiration my body was using other chemicals to get energy from since the body’s energy demand was high during anaerobic energy and there was not enough oxygen to fulfill it that is the reason why it is called anaerobic meaning “without oxygen”. I could tell when my muscles went into anaerobic when the intensity got high and I felt burning sensation and then I could tell it was the production was lactic acid in order to break down glucose to get energy.

    this is all I got but I don't know what they mean in terms or cellular respiration :\

    Big hint: oxidizing glucose to water and CO2 is an exothermic reaction. I'd look up that term and think about how it relates to the question

    Small hint: it doesn't differ much from the car engine requiring cooling, same type situation, even if different chemistry and type of engine.
