Sample text

Acetyl-CoA can then enter the Krebs cycle (discussed on p. 29) for further ATP resynthesis. The NADH molecules enter the electron transport system (discussed on p. 30), where they can also be used to resynthesize ATP. 5) Energy Yield of Glycolysis There are two primary mechanisms for resynthesizing ATP during metabolism: 1. Substrate-level phosphorylation 2. Oxidative phosphorylation Phosphorylation is the process of adding an inorganic phosphate (Pi ) to another molecule. For example, ADP + Pi → ATP is the phosphorylation of ADP to ATP.

In addition, ATP stores cannot be completely depleted due to the necessity for basic cellular function. In fact, ATP concentrations may only slightly decrease (21) or may decrease by up to 50% to 60% (109) of the preexercise levels during experimentally induced muscle fatigue. 2) to maintain the concentration of ATP. Under normal circumstances, skeletal muscle concentrations of CP are four to six times higher than ATP concentrations (85). Therefore, the phosphagen system, through CP and the creatine kinase reaction, serves as an energy reserve for rapidly replenishing ATP.

This includes knowledge of the function of the macrostructure and microstructure of muscle fibers, muscle fiber types, interactions between tendon and muscle and between the motor unit and its activation, as well as the interactions of the heart, vascular system, lungs, and respiratory system. This information is necessary for developing training strategies that will meet the specific needs of the athlete.
