Aerobic Versus Anaerobic: What is the Difference?

Select one of the following: a triathlete, a football player, a gymnast, and one phase of their sport. For example, if you choose the triathlete you can choose the cycling phase of their activity, or if you choose the football player, you could choose the sprint phase of their activity, or if you choose the gymnast, you may choose the backflip phase of their activity. As your athlete performs the chosen activity, discuss whether rapid or slow glycolysis is the most effective means of energy transfer? What physiological factors contributed to your analysis (e.g. hydrogen release, lactate formation, glucose catabolism, etc.)? How did these factors influence your choice? Explain the benefits of lactate for optimal performance of the chosen activity.

Your research and claims must be supported by your course text and a minimum of two additional scholarly sources. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references

Guided Response: Review some of your classmates’ posts. Identify at least two classmates who chose a different athlete than you chose and analyze the appropriateness of the type of glycolysis they discussed. Then, explain if you agree with the benefits of lactate identified for their chosen activity. Support your reasoning for each response to your classmates with at least one scholarly source.
