Glycolysis: Glucose Breakdown Provides Energy

Glycolysis: Glucose Breakdown Provides Energy

Glycolysis, the “splitting of glucose”, is the breakdown of glucose or glycogen in order to provide ATP, which occurs in the liver and in the sarcoplasm of muscle cells. Glycolysis is the energy system that predominantly provides energy for higher-intensity activities lasting 15-90 seconds and it provides a net gain of 2-3 ATP. The initial...
ATP-CP Energy System

ATP-CP Energy System

The ATP-CP system consists of two energy storage reservoirs: ATP (adenosine triphosphate) Creatine Phosphate (CP) ATP The primary energy reservoir is ATP. ATP storage capacity in the body is 80g-100g and provides energy for maximal output for 1-3 seconds, depending on exercise intensity and the individual’s body size (bigger people store more energy and can...
Biological Energy Metabolism: ATP Production

Biological Energy Metabolism: ATP Production

ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the immediate source of energy for muscle cells. ATP consists of three parts: adenine ribose three linked phosphates ATP Synthesis During ATP synthesis, an anabolic reaction, the enzyme ATP synthase facilitates the assembly of this high-energy bond, energy is stored, and can be used to perform work when needed. ADP +...
Bioenergetics: Biological Energy Transformation

Bioenergetics: Biological Energy Transformation

The 1st law of thermodynamics states that energy is not produced or created but just transferred around. In other words, the body doesn’t produce any energy but simply transfers the energy derived from foods inside the body to an external environment. According to Lord Kelvin, the 2nd law of thermodynamics can be expressed as: “No...
Clean Pull (from floor)

Clean Pull (from floor)

The Clean Pull from the floor is being used to develop power via efficient energy transfer of the total body musculature. Regular and proper execution of the exercise will enhance the player’s stroke production and athletic capabilities. Therefore, having powerful total body musculature is desirable. The video and detailed exercise description below will inform you...
