The relationship between anaerobic exercise and aerobic capacity Introduction
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an important organic molecule in all living organisms, it is a biologist fuel for all living organisms.(Vanputte et al. 2014) When the energy stored in ATP is used, ATP will be broken down to adenosine triphosphate and inorganic phosphorous (Astrand 1956). Cell Respiration is the way that the human body produces more ATP, and there are four parts in total which is glycolysis, Link Reaction, Krebs cycle and Electron Transport Chain respectively. However, if when oxygen is not present in the cell, then the private undergoes alcoholic fermentation and lactate formatted in the process of anaerobic respiration (Peeters Weem et al. 2007).
While physical activities of moderate intensity (e.g. Marathon and swimming) are supported by aerobic metabolism, a high intensity activity (e.g. 100m race) is an anaerobic metabolism process because the human body muscle needs a large amount of energy in a short period of time, and the lungs cannot put enough oxygen in the blood steam to keep up the need of muscle energy. It generally is used only for short bursts of the body. (BrianMac Sports Coach 2011)
There is a positive proportion between demands on the aerobic energy system during physical activity and demands for oxygen delivered to the muscles. Generally, increase the demands on aerobic energy also increase the demands for oxygen delivered to the muscle (Medbo and Tabata 1993).
