Creatine Phosphate System [10 seconds]
ATP: Adenosine Triphosphate (APPP) Reaction happens where a phophate (P) breaks off creating Adenosine Diphosphate.
– Creatine finds a phosphate and takes it to APP to make APPP again. However it has to re-synthesize again.
(This is where a Creatine supplement works, it gives this particular energy system a new P, speeding up the process. Therefore giving you more strength so to speak, to push out one or two extra repetitions)

The More CV(Cardiovascular) you do, the more mitochondria and the more energy you can create. A good example of mitochondria in action would be children, they are constantly full of energy due to a naturally high amount of mitochondria!
