Simulation of 90 seconds handgrip exercise (between lines) of 25% MVC with 5 times O2 and 4 times blood flow of the resting, followed by various blood flow during the recovery phase. The variable recovery blood flows are: (A) the same as the resting value, (B), 4 times of the resting value, and (C), 10 times of the resting value. %StO2: red, %SvO2: blue, oxygenation: black (μM/kg). The reoxygenation rate during the recovery increases with greater blood flow (from A to C).
