At the end of this course, the learners are expected to:
1. explain the how the three energy systems can produce Adenosine Trisphosphate
Glycolysis that enables movement: and
2. enumerate physical activities that can improve the production of ATP.

Our body is like a car that requires chemical energy that comes from fuel or
gasoline to make it move. Energy is needed to produce physical movements, maintain
normal body temperature, and a healthy metabolism. With this, energy is constantly
being consumed and transferred.
The two energy transfers that consume our energy are:
1. Basal Metabolic Rate
It is a transfer needed to maintain body temperature to keep us alive with no
motion required.
Figure 2 shows the involuntary functions such as breathing and the pumping of
blood. From there, you can determine how many calories you need to eat to gain
muscle, lose fat, or maintain your weight.
2. Working Energy
The next transfer of energy is when we work or play. These are considered
voluntary movements. According to a study, “The more active we are, the more energy
we transfer and therefore the more “fuel” we need in food. The bigger, or more active a
person is, the more energy they will need, and vice versa”. However, age, physical build,
and gender may be a factor on the amount of energy needed by the body. Figure 3,
illustrates some of the voluntary activities and their rotations per minute or RPM.
