Anaerobic energy systems

HideShow resource information
Anaerobic energy system
a process that provides energy for the resynthesize of ATP without the use of oxygen.
1 of 10
Coupled reaction
a chemical reaction in which energy is transferred from one side of the reaction to the other.
2 of 10
Phosphocreatine
an energy -rich compound of Creatin and phosphoric acid, found in muscle cells
3 of 10
Lactate anaerobic energy system
the system that produces energy for ATP resynthesize by breaking down glucose without oxygen and producing lactate as a by-product.
4 of 10
Lactate threshold
the level of exercise intensity at which you are producing more lactate than can be removed or resynthesized lactic acid starts to accumulate in the bloodstream and muscle, owing to excess hydrogen combining with pyruvate to form lactate.
5 of 10
Muscle fatigue
the decline in muscle function as muscles are used intensively and repeatedly.
6 of 10
Onset of blood lactacid accumulation(OBLA)
the point at which lactic acid (lactate) starts to accumulate within the blood; normally a rapid increase follows.
7 of 10
Lactate tolerance
the ability to withstand the effects of lactic acid accumulation
8 of 10
Creatin
substance formed by the body that stores energy and is used as an energy source for ATP resynthesize.
9 of 10
Active recovery
the use of light energy to aid recovery.
