In certain predominantly white muscles even increases up to 80 fold have been reported laughlin et al. The skeletal muscle is a rather unique organ in as much as blood flow through the muscle can change over an extremely broad range.

The skeletal muscles are the largest collection of common structures totaling 40 of the body mass.
Blood flow at rest and during exercise. Blood flow to the heart wall skeletal muscles and skin is increased but blood flow to the kidneys stomach intestines and other abdominal organs is reduced. At rest skeletal muscle blood flows may be 1 4 mlmin per 100g. At rest only about 20 of our total circulating blood is directed to skeletal muscle.
This is illustrated on the adjacent graph. Regional cerebral blood flow rcbf of the left hemisphere was measured in 12 healthy young men at rest and during physical work on a bicycle ergometer in the supine position at work load levels of 25 w or 100 w using the intravenous 133 xe method. During extreme physical exertion more than 80 of cardiac output can be directed to contracting muscles.
Skin and muscle blood flow during exercisethe skin is the bodys largest organ accounting for approximately 15 of the body mass of the average adult. At rest this is not a problem. Blood flow responses to exercise.
Because the rest of the body gets the message to constrict the blood vessels and the muscles dilate their blood vessels blood flow from nonessential organs for example stomach intestines and kidney is diverted to working muscle. If blood flow were equally distributed to all 30 kg skeletal muscles in an untrained male with a peak cardiac output of 20 lmin and 18 lmin of total skeletal muscle blood flow during heavy exercise muscle blood flow would be 60 mlmin 1 100 g muscle 1. B33 compare the distribution of blood flow at rest and during exercise.
When you exercise the flow of blood through your internal carotid arteries and cerebral arteries increases by roughly 25 percent according to a study reported in 2008 in the journal of applied physiology this finding reverses earlier research which measured the flow of blood leaving the brain and found no changes during exercise. Venous return blood returning to the heart must constitute three fifths of the blood circulating the body at any time in order to maintain steady blood flow. However during exercise the blood pressure in the veins is not high enough to increase the level of venous return and so maintain the higher stroke volume and cardiac output which exercise requires.
The skin and the skeletal muscles are each significantly affected by blood flow during exercise. Compared to resting conditions blood flow during maximal exercise can increase up to 20 fold on average. Blood flow to the brain is unchanged during exercise.
Over 60 of blood flow at rest is directed to the liver kidneys and brain. Maximal blood flows may reach 50 100 mlmin per 100g. Therefore skeletal muscle resistance becomes the primary determinant of systemic vascular resistance during exercise.
This helps increase the delivery of oxygenated blood to working muscle further.
