Corey Walden - Energy Systems And Sports Performance (Topics In Health)
Publication Date: 28 March 2013

Many of us think of glucose sugar as the base fuel for the functions of the body, and in a way this is correct, but in the end every thermal, mechanical, electrical, and chemical action made by the body is fueled through four processes that create our most basic fuel source: Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This text explains what ATP (as well as ADP/AMP) is, how it works, and the four systems that create and renew this ultimately vital resource, framed within the need of the human body to live and move.

From here, the text shows how each of these four different energy systems works in the body work under different conditions and how to specifically train the components of each energy pathway for improved power, efficiency and endurance across a manifold of performance goals and actions. This definitely includes sports performance of any kind, and is the scientific basis that the worlds top athletes, teams, and Olympic contenders are training from.

This text is semi-technical, and is fit for the semi-lay-person. Some background in chemistry will be highly useful, but a degree or professional expertise is not required.
