What sports use the oxidative system?
Energy systems used in sports.
Just so, what is the oxidative system?
The oxidative energy system is the primary source of ATP at rest and during low intensity exercise. Fats and carbs are the primary substrates that are used . The other energy systems (ATP-PC and Glycolysis) provide energy for shorter duration and higher intensity exercise.
One may also ask, what sports use the lactic acid system? Any sport or event requiring a sustained burst of high-intensity exercise will use the lactic acid system and cause the body to go into oxygen debt. For example 400m Sprinting, Speed Skating, Crossfit competitions & Circuit training.
Similarly one may ask, what are the energy systems in sport?
During exercise, your body relies on three basic energy systems: the anaerobic a-lactic system, the anaerobic lactic system, and the aerobic system. Depending on the sports played, athletes rely on one system more than the others.
How do you train the oxidative system?
Training the oxidative system
- Steady state cardio – long duration, low intensity workouts such as jogging, cycling, swimming, or rowing.
- Long intervals – using a 1:1 or 1:2 work/rest interval, for example, three minutes fast running, three minutes walking/jogging, repeated five times to total 30 minutes.
