ATP/PC system


  • overloads ATP/PC system
  • increases muscle stores of ATP/PC
  • delays threshold between ATP/PC and lactic acid systems
  • increases potential duration of high intensity excercise (up to 2 secs)
1 of 3

Lactic acid system


  • increases body's tolerance to lactic acid
  • increases body's stores of glycogen
  • delays OBLA blood lactate accumulation
  • athletes can work at higher intensities for longer
2 of 3

Aerobic system


  • increases storage of muscle and liver glycogen
  • increases mobilisation of aerobic enzymes
  • uses FFAs as a fuel earlier which conserves glycogen stores
  • increases aerobic threshold which increases potential intensity of performance
  • delays muscle fatigue
  • increases efficiency of lactate removal
