How to use "Exertion" in context?

Everyone has different levels of exertion, which are determined by a person's age, weight, and sex. Ordinary physical activity above the level of minimal activity produces red blood cells and hormones such as cortisol, which help to improve mood and protect tissues from damage. The highest level of exertion produces the so-called anaerobic response, during which the body's cells break down fuel to create energy. Anaerobic activity can produce lactic acid and other byproducts, which can make muscles tired and give a "pumping" sensation.
