An increase in endurance is synonymous with a postponement of the development of fatigue. A thorough understanding of the mechanisms by which endurance is increased by exercise-training is therefore dependent on an elucidation of the mechanisms responsible for fatigue. Despite considerable interest in this area, relatively little is known regarding the biochemical events that result in the various symptoms that can force an individual to stop exercising because of fatigue. One point seems clear, however, and that is that fatigue or exhaustion can have various etiologies depending on the intensity and duration of the exercise, the environmental factors, and the individual's condition.
