Exercise requires energy. The energy and other nutrient requirements are higher in athletes. The body utilizes energy in the form of ATP (Adenosine Triphospahte). This ATP is available to the body through 3 energy systems, namely, Creatine Phosphate (also called as ATP-PCr), Glycolysis (anaerobic or without oxygen) and Oxidative pathway (aerobic or in presence of oxygen). Each of the three energy systems generates energy of different capacities, the ATP-PCr can generate energy at a rate of roughly 36 kcal/minute, glycolysis at about 16 kcal/minute and oxidative system at 10 kcal/minute. For high intensity but short duration exercises the body relies on the anaerobic energy systems (ATP-PC system / glycolysis system), whereas for low intensity and longer time exercises reliance is on the aerobic or the oxidative energy systems. Also no one system of Energy works independently of the other. For each and every type of exercise, all the three systems are involved, however either one or two of the three systems is predominant
