Anaerobic Conditioning: Training the Three Energy Systems

A current topic in exercise science is how to achieve optimal performance in a variety of sports by learning how to train the body's different systems. Every athlete should be conditioning themselves for the specific needs of their sport in order to achieve optimal performance. This article discusses the three bioenergetic systems - the adenosine triphosphate Creatine phosphate system, the glycolytic system, and the oxidative system - and the ways to properly train them to achieve optimal performance.

The adenosine triphosphate Creatine-phosphate (ATP-PC) system provides energy at a rapid rate for activities lasting 15 seconds or less. The glycolytic, or lactic acid system, provides energy for those activities lasting 15 seconds to 2 minutes. Lastly, the oxidative system provides energy for those activities lasting longer than 2 minutes. Using this basic information can allow the coach to program effective conditioning programs for their athlete.  | So ATP-PC or Glycolytic might be a good place to start if you are trying to improve your power during an olympic lift.  An example in this article was to do the movement at the same speed or faster with lighter weight.  By training in these short burst you should improve your glycolytic system. 04-30-2017 8:08am
