A complex series of metabolic pathways are present in human muscle that break down substrates from nutritional sources to produce energy for different types of muscular activity. However, depending on the activity in which an individual is engaged, the body will make use of different energy systems that have been adapted for the particular activity. More specifically, utilization of bioenergetic substrates depends on the type, intensity, and duration of the exercise. The aerobic oxidative… CONTINUE READING
