On the other hand, olympic lifters rely primarily on the phosphagen system, but recruit the glycolytic and aerobic pathways as well. Our energy systems exist on a spectrum known as the “Bioenergetic Continuum”. A well-developed athlete is efficient at accessing all these systems when training and racing. Read More
