            • partially broken down by phosphofructokinase
            • 2 ATP produced
            • Advantages
              • ATP can be regenerated quickly due to few chemical reactions being needed
              • lactic acid is converted back into glycogen (with O2 present)
            • Disadvantages
              • only a small amount of energy is released from glycogen while under anaerobic conditions
              • lactic acid is a by-product of this system
