Cardiorespiratory System and Maximal Aerobic Capacity

Identify the 3 main energy processes/cycles that the human body utilizes to produce ATP from catabolizing 1 molecule of glucose. Describe in great detail the “raw products” that go into each cycle as well as the “end product” tha‌‌‍‌‌‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‍‌‌‍‌t comes out of each process. Finally, discuss why it may be better to utilize free fatty acids as a raw source of fuel versus carbohydrates and explain why it is the body’s preference not to use protein as a source of fuel unless it has‌‌‍‌‌‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‍‍‌‌‍‌ to do so.
