The aerobic energy system is your diesel-powered semi-trailer. It takes a while to warm up, but once it is going, it goes the distance producing plenty of ATP with great efficiency. This energy system uses fats, carbs, and protein to produce plenty of ATP, but produces them at a slower rate compared to the two [...]
