  • Aerobic System
    • Carbohydrate
      • Glucose
        • PFK
          • TWO ATP
        • PFK
          • Pyruvic Acid
            • Lactic Acid
            • Coenzyme A
              • Acetyl CoA
              • Oxaloacetic Acid
                • Citric Acid
                  • Kreb's Cycle
                    • Co2 produced and removed
                      • NAD & FAD = NADH + FADH
                        • ECT - Mitochondria cristae folds
                          • E- + ECT
                            • 34 ATP
                          • H + ECT
                            • H2O
                    • 2 ATP
                    • Regeneration of Oxaloacetic acid
    • Advantages
      • 36/38 molecules of ATP re-synthesised from glycogen
      • Activity can last for hours
      • No harmful waste products
    • Disadvantage
      • Oxygen needed so the re-synthesis is not immediate -- delay from lungs
      • System can't produce energy while working at higher intensities, time taken to provide oxygen to the working muscles
  • Hydrogen atoms produced
