Glycolysis involves breaking down the muscular and liver stores of glycogen into a substance called pyruvate. This conversion requires 12 enzymatic reactions in total and produces a net gain of three molecules of ATP plus hydrogen, which is used at a later stage to produce more ATP in the presence of oxygen. The combined actions of the ATP–PCr (phosphagen) and glycolytic systems allow muscles to generate force when the demand for energy exceeds the rate at which energy can be supplied aerobically.

But to prevent motor units from being permanently activated, evolution has created a threshold effect. When enough neurotransmitter binds to the muscle fibre membrane, the electrical potential of the fibre membrane changes. If insufficient neurotransmitter is present, the electrical signal will not be passed to the muscle fibres attached to the motor nerve, and therefore the motor unit will not contract. This outcome is known as the all-or-nothing principle of motor unit contraction; that is, motor units are either activated or not.

As the great sprint coach Loren Seagrave once said, ‘Any idiot can make someone tired. The trick is to make them tired in the right way and without losing the quality of the technique’ (personal communication). Energy is created by breaking down a storage molecule. In sport, glycogen, the muscular storage of glucose, is usually broken down, but sometimes it can be fat. Breaking down these molecules involves a number of physical systems. For example, the respiratory system brings oxygen into the body; the vascular system transports the oxygen in the blood, which is pumped by the cardiac muscle (hence cardiovascular) and is used in the cell at the end stage of a series of metabolic reactions within a pathway to produce energy.
