MORE ABOUT THE ENERGY SYSTEMS OF THE BODY

Three different metabolic energy systems power your workouts — and your day. Here’s how each one works, and how to make the most of them all.

Your body has several ways of turning the stuff you eat into the stuff you do. All of these metabolic energy systems are switched on during physical activity, but each plays a different role depending on available energy and the specific demands of the task. Each burns a particular type of fuel at a particular rate — thereby affecting fat loss and muscle gain in a particular way.

  • The adenosine triphosphate–creatine phosphate (ATP-CP) system, or phosphagen system, supports very brief, high-intensity activities like a single-effort vertical jump.
  • The glycolytic system provides energy for activities of slightly longer duration and lower intensity like strength training.
  • The oxidative system supports long-duration, lower-intensity activities like walking or distance running.

Change up Your Swim Pace

We can get pretty lazy when it comes to swimming. We show up to the pool, maybe after a struggle to find our stuff, get there, deal with traffic, deal with the pool schedule, deal with the other exercisers that you need to share the pool with ...

And then some of us aren't really paying attention when we swim. We don't want to. We don't like swimming. Swimming makes us feel slow, dumb, not good, inept.

So sometimes our mindfulness and effort aren't in it all the way. We lose focus. We aren't paying attention to our form. We aren't giving it a good effort, or our best effort.

Here is a good workout to help with changing that up.

This workout helps build top-end speed and helps you improve your ability to change pace, which is a vital skill all triathlon swimmers need to learn.
