    #1) When I am done working out, and the muscles feel like jelly, what is the cause of that? It's not like they're sore right after, but it's hard to do things like I'm really weak..is that just the depletion of ATP from the work out? Just curious about the phsyiology of it.

    #2) After I work out, I typically take a hot bath (about 1.5 hours) later. Does this burn a lot of calories? I know the raise in body temperature burns calories, but how significant is it (I usually sit in there for 10-15 minutes). Also, does this put me into a catabolic state, rather than anabolic?

    #3) Where do babies come from? :hsd:

    1) ATP stores are both used and replenished really fast. We're talking in seconds here.
    2) Lowering your body temperature will cause your metabolism to go faster to creat heat. I'd think a higher temperature would cause the body to shut down the metabolism to prevent yourself from getting a heatstroke or something.
    3) Babies come in separate parts from Kazakhstan in huge containers.

    #1...there's not one single answer to muscles fatigue...there's a couple theories: depletion therory...depletion of PCr, ATP, gylcogen. Accumulation theory...accumulation of hydrogen, inorganic phosphate (Pi), or lactate.

    These theories relate mostly to muscle fatigue during the exercise...but I think can still be applied to that jelly feeling or while the body is replenishing. I personally think it has to do with depletion of Ca2+.
