Learning Objectives Understand why physical educators, coaches, and exercise scientists need a basic understanding of energy metabolism. Have a basic knowledge of aerobic and anaerobic metabolism. Be able to differentiate between activities that are primarily aerobic or anaerobic. Be able to identify the metabolic adaptations to endurance, sprint, and resistance training.

Defining Energy Metabolism Using the food we eat to store energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which we break down, thus releasing energy and using it to cause muscles to contract. Involves the processes of anabolism and catabolism: Anabolism : Structures are created . Catabolism : Structures are broken down .

Why Do We Need to Understand Energy Metabolism? ATP is the only source of energy used directly for muscle contraction. Producing enough ATP is essential to being physically active.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
