Process to be repeated at the next available link site. This attachment–detachment and reattachment of the actin and myosin causes the muscle to shorten and to produce force generation [76,94]. The recruitment of muscle fibers and the interaction and release of actin and myosin require energy supplied by the hydrolysis (splitting) of the terminal phosphate bond(s) of ATP [65]. The available store of ATP in skeletal muscle is extremely small and can fuel contraction for only a few seconds at high work rates [109].

III. BREATHING MECHANICS The process of increasing minute ventilation through the alteration of airway diameter, integration and recruitment of respiratory muscles, and the subsequent changes in abdominal and pleural pressures in relation to changes in lung volumes and flow rates is known as breathing mechanics. A. Breathing Pattern Classically, the onset of light exercise is associated with both an increase in depth (tidal volume; VT), and frequency of breathing (fb). Typically, however, the breathing depth is the dominant way of increasing ventilation at the lower levels of exertion [36,54].
