What metabolism uses ATP-PC sys?

Used for production of ATP for high intensity/short duration activity (100 m sprint)
What decomposes and releases large amt of energy used to construct ATP?

What metabolism uses anaerobic glycolysis?

Anaerobic metabolism

Anaerobic glycolysis does what?
Major supplier of ATP during high intensity, short duration activities (sprint 400-800m). Glycogen breaks down and produces energy.
Which sys is slower?

Anaerobic glycolysis

Aerobic metabolism used for?

Low intensity/long duration. OXYGEN used here. Energy through oxidation of food.
Fibrous Joints (synarthroses) are united by?
