  • Energy Systems
    • Two energy systems
      • Anaerobic System
        • Without use of oxygen
        • Uses chemicals and enzymes, occurs in muscle fibre
        • Short-lived
        • Occurs in the cytoplasm
      • Aerobic System
        • All metabolic activity uses oxygen
        • Occurs in mitochondria
        • Leads to complete breakdown of glucose
  • Three Energy Nutrients
    • Carbohydrates
    • Proteins
    • Fats
  • ATP
    • Adenosine triphosphate
    • Made in mitochondrion
    • Resynthesized in two ways
      • Aerobically
      • Anaerobically
    • ADP + Pi + Energy = ATP
