AbstractThere are 3 distinct yet closely integrated processes that operate together to satisfy the energy requirements of muscle. The anaerobic energy systemis divided into alactic and lactic components, referring to the processes involved in the splitting of the stored phosphagens, ATP and phosphocreatine (PCr), and the nonaerobic breakdown of carbohydrate to lactic acid through glycolysis. The aerobic energy system refers to the combustion of carbohydrates and fats in the presence of oxygen… 
Energy systems: a new look at aerobic metabolism in stressful exercise
The traditional view is that the resynthesis of ATP is supplied by three integrated systems comprising the Creatine Phosphate (PCr), lactic and aerobic systems, which now appears to have been incorrect.
Energy system contributions during incremental exercise test.
The data suggest that the aerobic metabolism is predominant throughout the IET and that energy system contributions undergo a slow transition from low to high intensity and the speed corresponding to the aerobic threshold can be considered the point in which aerobic metabolism reaches its maximal contribution.
Thermodynamics, Biochemistry, and Metabolism
It is critical for the sports nutritionist to understand the chemical underpinnings of exercise and nutrition to understand how a dietary supplement such as creatine monohydrate might exert its ergogenic effects.

The creatine kinase reaction plays an important role not only in buffering ATP but also in communicating energy demand from sites of ATP breakdown to the mitochondria, resulting in a net decrease in PCr concentration.
Exercício aeróbio: Aspectos bioenergéticos, ajustes fisiológicos, fadiga e índices de desempenho Aerobic exercise: bioenergetics, physiological adjustments, fatigue and performance indices
The objective of this study was to present relevant updated information regarding the physiological determinants of aerobic training and performance. In contrast to common concepts, the aerobic
Anaerobic and aerobic relative contribution to total energy release during supramaximal effort in patients with left ventricular dysfunction.
This finding indicates that energetic metabolism during supramaximal exercise is exercise tolerance independent and that relative anaerobic vs. aerobic contribution in this effort domain remains the same within the physiology- or pathology-induced limits to individual peak exercise performance.
Relative Aerobic and Anaerobic Energy Contributions during Short-Duration Exercise Remain Unchanged over A Wide Range of Exercise Intensities
The present study aimed to examine whether different exercise intensities, ranging from sub maximal to supramaximal, modulate the relative contributions of aerobic and anaerobic energy systems during
High-Intensity Warm-Up Increases Anaerobic Energy Contribution during 100-m Sprint
The main finding of this study revealed that a high-intensity warm-up (HIW) increases the contribution of the anaerobic system, probably by activating key regulatory enzymes related toAnaerobic energy metabolism, compared to a low-intensitywarm-up, for a 100-m sprint.
Performance and energy systems contributions during upper-body sprint interval exercise
The results suggest that absolute oxidative and ATP-PCr participations were kept constant across Wingate tests, but there was an increase in relative participation of ATP- PCr in bout 4 compared to bout 1, probably due to the partial phosphocreatine resynthesis during intervals and to the decreased glycolytic activity.
On the kinetics of anaerobic power
Overall, the data indicate that blood lactate levels can be accurately modeled during steady state, and suggests a linear relationship between the alactic anaerobic power and the rate of change of the aerobic power.


Aerobic and anaerobic energy conversion during high-intensity exercise.
Data extracted from the mathematical models of running are generally more consistent than the body of experimental data, which may indicate that the inherent difficulties of laboratory techniques relating to the measurement of anaerobic energy conversion are giving rise to significant experimental errors.
Relative importance of aerobic and anaerobic energy release during short-lasting exhausting bicycle exercise.
These results show that both aerobic and anaerobic processes contribute significantly during intense exercise lasting from 30 s to 3 min, and the relative importance of aerobic processes increased from 40% at 30 s duration to 50% at 1 min duration and further to 65% for exercise lasting 2 min.
Metabolic bases of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption: a review.
It is now probable that the original lactic acid explanation of the O2 debt was too simplistic, and it is recommended that the term "O2 debt" be used to describe a set of phenomena during recovery from exercise.

Estimated pulmonary oxygen deficit based on an energy demand extrapolated from a linear relationship between exercise intensity and oxygen uptake at submaximal exercise does not appear to represent the anaerobic energy production during whole body exercise.
Muscular exercise, lactic acid, and the supply and utilisation of oxygen
It has been shown that any substances other than lactic acid and oxygen are directly concerned in the recovery process in muscle, so the above relationship can be put in terms of these substances.
Quantification of anaerobic capacity
The maximal accumuiated oxygen deficit method remains a promising measure of the anaerobic capacity, as it provides a non‐invasive means of quantifying theAnaerobic energy release during exhaustive exercise.
Energy system contribution during 400 to 1500 metres running
The latest research uses more accurate Accumulated Oxygen Deficit method, which takes into account individual efficiency relationships In calculating the relative aerobic and anaerobic energy system contribution.

The aim of this study was to estimate the energy contributions in middle-distance running events for male and female university athletes to help coaches and sport scientists to design and implement individualized training programmes.
Anaerobic ATP production and accumulated O2 deficit in cyclists.
Anaerobic ATP production in skeletal muscle and the accumulated oxygen deficit (O2D) incurred during an exhaustive cycle bout (duration = 173 +/- 24 s; intensity = 112 +/- 3% VO2peak), were
Anaerobic energy production and O2 deficit‐debt relationship during exhaustive exercise in humans.
Estimated leg oxygen deficit corresponded to an ATP production of 94.7 mmol ATP kg‐1 and total reduction in ATP and CP (and elevation of IMP) during the intense exercise amounted to 16.4 mmol ATP‐1, which together with the lactate production accounted for 83.1 mmol ATP (kg wet wt)‐1.
