Energy Systems

Lesson Aims

Analyse & understand how ATP works?

Understand how ATP is resynthesized for muscular contractions.

Energy & ATP
  • All body systems require energy to perform work.
  • Energy = Capacity of the body to perform work.

(Calories (ckal) or Joules)

1Calorie = 4.184 joules

  • It is important to have knowledge of energy as it allows the coach and performer to maximise performance.

Energy & ATP

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) - The basic source of energy for muscle contraction.

ATP is a molecule composed of Adenosine attached to 3 phosphate.

  • The 3 phosphate bonds store high energy
  • When the outermost bond is broken
  • the energy is then released for muscular
  • contractions.
  • This reaction takes place in the myofibril
energy atp2
Energy & ATP
  • When a phosphate is broken loose from the ATP molecule (forming ADP: adenine diphosphate) energy (ATPase enzyme) is released.
  • There is only enough ATP stored in the muscles for 1 explosive muscle contraction.
  • As ATP is not stored in large amounts in skeletal muscle, it has to be replenished or resynthesized for contractions to continue

Energy & ATP

ATP resynthesis

  • ATP replenishment is a reversible chain reaction.
  • ADP (Adenosine diphosphate) + a Pi (phosphate) molecule is recombined to resynthesize ATP.
  • There are other ways in which energy stores are replenished, these are called energy pathways.
energy pathways
ENERGY PATHWAYS?

PHOSPHOCREATINE (PCr) SPLITTING

  • Phosphocreatine is stored in the muscle

tissue (sarcoplasm) and is broken down by

enzyme creatine kinase into creatine.

  • Creatine kinase is stimulated by the  in ‘free’

phosphates (Pi) resulting from the breakdown

of ATP into ADP + Pi + energy

  • The combined amounts of muscle ATP and
  • phosphocreatine are can provide maximal
  • muscle power for 8 to 10 seconds

Thus, the energy from the phosphagen system is used for maximal short bursts of power.

For example – 100m sprint

ENERGY PATHWAYS?

Anaerobic Glycolysis

  • Carbohydrates, sugar or starch are stored in the muscles & liver as glycogen.
  • These are converted to a compound ‘glucose-6-phospate’ (pyruvic acid) for the resynthesis of ATP.
  • No O2 is required, hence Anaerobic. However, it produces a large accumulation of lacticacid.
  • Pathway is used in highintensity activities with a duration of 1-3 minutes.

For example - 400/800m

- 100m freestyle (swimming)

ENERGY PATHWAYS?

Aerobic Metabolism

  • ATP is resynthesized by chemical
  • reactions from many sources.
  • Used when sustained energy is
  • required.
  • H2O & CO2 are by product. These
  • are easily dispersed through
  • sweating and respiration.
