How energy systems work: Study Guide NOTE: Your goal during this module is to understand the basics of how the three energy systems work so that the lecture modules on lactate curves and VO 2max make practical sense to you. I’ve assigned two class periods for this lecture. 1. What are the three energy systems? Creatine phosphate, glycolysis, and aerobic 2. The CP system is also called the _______________ system because __________ Anaerobic alactic; it doesn’t produce lactate 3. What is the equation that describes the reaction involved in the PCr system PCr + ADP Creatine (Cr) + ATP 4. How long does it take for the PCr system to fully activate – how long can it supply energy? How long does it take to recover? It takes 1-2 secs for the PCr system to fully activate. The system can recover in about 60-90 secs. 5. When is CP rebuilt again? During the aerobic phase CP is rebuilt again. 6. Please know the positive, negative and trainability aspects of the PCr energy system. See highlight in notes.
