ATP ADP + energy
The ATP content in muscle minor. During intense muscle activity, the ATP consumed in the 2C. However, within the muscles, there are several support systems that continuously regenerate ADP to ATP.
There are three main systems of resynthesis of ATP: phosphate, lactate and oxygen.
KrF + ADP → ATP + creatine
— creatine (ECOP), which reserves in the muscles are limited to 6-8 with intensive work.
At maximum load the phosphate system Continue reading
