In chapter 14 it talks about the training for energy fitness. Your body continuously needs energy to power your muscle. Energy basically comes from the food we eat in order to become fuel for our body and this is distributed all over the body in order to create work. It also talks about ATP. Adenosine triphosphate is the only fuel a cell can use to contract muscle, build new tissue and transports minerals and waste throughout the body. This chapter also talks about the anaerobic system.
