Storyboard Text

  • Hi! I'm Stella Dada, and today we will be learning how to use Carbohydrates as a fuel source for High Intensity Activites.
  • For starters, Carbohydrates can be used in the Oxidative System and the Glycolytic System. But for today we will be focusing on how the Glycolytic System uses Carbohydrates. Let's take a look at whats going on at this gym.
  •  Using the Glycolytic System, relies on the rapid breakdown of Carbohydrates. 
  • Glucose 
  • It then breaks down into Glucose, which is one of the most basic forms of Carbohydrates, and is constantly circulating in the bloodstream. The glucose then breaks down into glycogen which is the standard form of glucose in the muscle and liver.
  • Glycogen
  • Now you are probably wondering what does this have to do with these students. Well, its simple both are breaking down either the blood glucose or glycogen in order to create ATP as we speak! (which is the energy produced). 
  • ATP
  • This process is called Glycolysis
