Since the energy systems follow a continuum, the first order of business is to identify the predominant anaerobic energy
system used in the activity.
BRIGHT OUTLOOK: SSI President Win Viriyaprapaikit at Corus last week NEW PLANS: John Barton is heading up Anaerobic Energy
Ltd and, below, former ICI land could be the site for a new waste to energy plant
For strength and power training, which relies on anaerobic energy
release, heavy loads are best, with no more than six reps and long rest intervals.
In June, new research was published that specifically examined the role of three types of recovery in both aerobic and anaerobic energy
Both the creatine reactions and anaerobic glycolysis energy systems are anaerobic energy
systems, meaning that oxygen is not required for these energy systems to operate.
Anaerobic digestion, which turns organic waste into gas to create electricity, is now becoming more mainstream in parts of Europe and has led to the creation of a number of businesses in the North East, including Anaerobic Energy
Ltd, a CPI spin-out company already based at Wilton.
In past segments we have discussed the bioenergetics of the anaerobic energy
system, and how it governs high-intensity activities.
Interval training burns fat like nothing else, as it uses anaerobic energy
resulting in the body burning calories for hours after you have finished your session to recover from the workout.
When the amount of ATP needed cannot be derived quickly enough with traditional oxygen intake and conversion to energy, the body then relies on the anaerobic energy
system, which creates as a byproduct lactic acid.
The result is rapid anaerobic energy
failure that can most closely be compared to sprinting, except it's indoors and the fighter is standing still.
As cricketers, their anaerobic energy
system needed to be improved as that helps them in release of sudden burst of energy.
John Barton, chief executive of Anaerobic Energy
, who is also working on CPI's project, said: "Nationally there is potential for 6-800 of these plants, including on Teesside.
It combines use of both aerobic and anaerobic energy
systems with the systematic recruitment of both fast and slow twitch muscle fibres in a manner that not only ensures a diverse workout, but also enhances sports specific senses, including hand-eye co-ordination, balance and timing.
Dr Jo Corbett, senior lecturer in applied exercise physiology at the University of Portsmouth, has found that the brain of an exhausted athlete can tap into the body's anaerobic energy
sources to fuel that final push for victory.
Chaired by John Barton, chief executive of Anaerobic Energy
Ltd, it will run from 5pm to 7pm.
