Unformatted text preview: of chemical reactions immediate energy system- releases energy stored in creatine phosphate for rapid maximal muscle contraction of very short duration anaerobic glycoloysis- process that splits glucose into pyruvate and releases energy to ATP and NADH aerobic metabolism- series of processes that begins w/ conversion of pyruvate to acetyl CoA, proceeds to citric acid cycle, ends w/ electron transport chain; produces NADH, H+, FADH2, ATP, CO2, and water, it requires oxygen as final electron acceptor Energy balance is important positive means body is accumulating energy (weight gain), negative means body’s energy stores are being depleted (weight loss)...
