    Hi there

    The first thing you should do when answering this question is describe what you see in the table. It clarifies your thought processes and makes it clear that you understand what is going on.

    So first describe what you see- the blood flow through other tissues and organs decreases under conditions of moderate aerobic exercise, and decreases further under conditions of intense anaerobic exercise. To be really neat you could calculate the % reduction from blood flow at rest. At the very least give the actual reduction from rest in each case - and remember the units (ml min-1) - very easy to forget in this sort of question.

    OK- having established that blood ...

    Solution Summary

    The change in blood flows are determined. Intense anaerobic exercises which are engaged by an athlete is determined.
