Skeletal muscle is vital for humans and animals, and it is an important source of movement system. Intermittent exercise is a training method that can cause skeletal muscles to adapt quickly. Therefore, it is necessary to actively carry out research on the effect of intermittent exercise on skeletal muscle gene cells and related factors in rats. The purpose of this article is to explore the effect of intermittent exercise on skeletal muscle gene cells of rats, and to analyze in detail the mechanism and related problems of intermittent exercise on skeletal muscle gene cells of rats by experimental methods. The effects and detailed processes of intermittent exercise on the proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis of skeletal muscle gene cells were studied in depth, and the differences in the expression of related genes and some differences in their physiological processes were investigated and studied in detail. The results show that it is feasible to use intermittent exercise to promote the recovery and improvement of skeletal muscle gene cells, which can effectively prevent skeletal muscle damage. Moreover, exercise training has a certain relief and prevention effect on skeletal muscle aging injury, regulates the early skeletal muscle susceptibility to apoptosis, reduces the skeletal muscle injury rate of rats by 45%, and increases the skeletal muscle by 28% gene cell expression.
