What role does the nervous system play in muscle fatigue?

1 Answer

  • The central nervous system protects our muscles from tearing by reducing the rate nerve impulses are sent to our working muscles. You'll experience central fatigue before local fatigue. In other words, when you think you simply can't do any more work because you're so fatigued, essentially what's happening is your mind is telling your body muscles to shut down.
