ortho 11 energy sys

Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System This energy system is used for ATP production during high intensity, short duration exercise such as sprinting 100 meters.
Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System Phosphocreatine decomposes and releases a large amount of energy that is used to construct ATP.
Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System There is two to three times more phosphocreatine in cells of muscles than ATP.
Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System This process occurs almost instantaneously allowing for ready and available energy needed by the muscles.
Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System The system provides energy for muscle contraction for up to 15 seconds.
Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System The phosphagen system represents the most rapidly available source of ATP for use by the muscle. Reasons for this rapid availability are as follows:
Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System It does not depend on a long series of chemical reactions.
• Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System It does not depend on transporting the oxygen we breathe to the working muscles.
• Anaerobic Metabolism ATP-PC System Both ATP and PC are stored directly within the contractile mechanisms of the muscle.
Anaerobic Glycolysis This energy system is a major supplier of ATP during high intensity, short duration activities such as sprinting 400 or 800 meters.
Anaerobic Glycolysis Stored glycogen is split into glucose, and through glycolysis, split again into pyruvic acid. The energy released during this process forms ATP.
Anaerobic Glycolysis The process does not require oxygen. This system is nearly 50% slower than the phosphocreatine system and can provide a person with 30 to 40 seconds of muscle contraction.
Anaerobic glycolysis results in the formation of lactic acid, which causes muscular fatigue.
• Anaerobic Glycolysis It does not require the presence of oxygen.
• Anaerobic Glycolysis It uses only carbohydrates (glycogen and glucose).
• Anaerobic Glycolysis It releases enough energy for the resynthesis of only small amounts of ATP.
Aerobic Metabolism is used predominantly during low intensity, long duration exercise such as running a marathon.
Aerobic Metabolism The oxygen system yields by far the most ATP, but it requires several series of complex chemical reactions. This system provides energy through the oxidation of food.
Aerobic Metabolism The combination of fatty acids, amino acids, and glucose with oxygen releases energy that forms ATP. This system will provide energy as long as there are nutrients to utilize.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
