Exercise leads to myriad beautiful intracellular changes. Exercise causes a brief stress response, which triggers an even bigger restorative response. Exercise damages molecules, and damaged molecules can cause inflammation. However, early on in a bout of exercise, exercise induces autophagy, the Pac-Man-like process that eats up damaged molecules. This prevents inflammation. Later in the same exercise session, when there are too many damaged molecules, the autophagy can no longer keep them under control, the cell dies a quick death called apoptosis, in a cleaner way that doesn't lead to debris and inflammation. Exercise also increases the number and quality of those energy producing mitochondria. In this way, exercise can reduce the amount of oxidative stress. After exercise, when your body is recovering, it is still cleaning up cell debris, making cells healthier and more robust than before exercise.
