When you exercise, your body uses up more oxygen, which your body's cells need as fuel. You also produce more waste gas (carbon dioxide) because the cells are working harder. You breathe heavily when exercising because you need to expel more carbon dioxide than usual from your lungs and take in more oxygen than usual. (Source: You may also check out this page:
