  • Exercise Physiology
    • ATP is broken down, ADP + Pi releases heat and energy
    • Small amounts of ATP in mitochondria
    • ATP must be released quickly
    • Accomplished through:
      • CP/PC (Creatine phosphate) splitting
      • Anaerobic Glycolysis
      • Aerobic metabolism
  • CP Splitting
    • For repeated muscular contractions, rapid replenishment of ATP is necessary
  • Splitting of CP --> allows free phosphate to join ADP = ATP made
    • For repeated muscular contractions, rapid replenishment of ATP is necessary
  • Sufficient for 8-9 seconds --> after, replenishment falls off quickly
    • Splitting of CP --> allows free phosphate to join ADP = ATP made
    • Anaerobic Glycolysis
    • Uses glycogen to replenish ATP
      • Anaerobic Glycolysis
    • Glycogen stored in muscle is broken down
      • Uses glycogen to replenish ATP
      • Doesn't need oxygen, but makes lactic acid
        • Glycogen stored in muscle is broken down
        • Lactic acid = muscle fatigue
          • Doesn't need oxygen, but makes lactic acid
          • Tolerance to lactic acid can be built up with training
            • Lactic acid = muscle fatigue
            • Aerobic Metabolism
            • Produces sustainable energy for long periods of time
              • Aerobic Metabolism
            • Uses oxygen and fat
              • Produces sustainable energy for long periods of time
              • Complex reaction breaks down fat to glycogen --> used for ATP synthesis
                • Uses oxygen and fat
                • By-products are carbon dioxide and water
                  • Complex reaction breaks down fat to glycogen --> used for ATP synthesis
                  • Used at submaximal intensity
                    • By-products are carbon dioxide and water
