Known as "powerhouses" of the cell: more mitochondria means greater use of oxygen to produce more ATP and energy.


2. INCREASED CAPILLARISATION

Allows for a faster exchange of oxygen and fuel between the blood and the working muscles.



3. INCREASED STROKE VOLUME

More oxygenated blood pumped to the working muscles per beat.
