Many fitness and exercise professionals utilize the energy spectrum of exercise to help them design training and exercise regimens. This spectrum is based on the body’s energy systems and their contributions to the ability to perform certain activities for certain periods of time. Review Chapters 5 and 6 in the course text and watch the Cell Respiration  (Links to an external site.)video. Then choose one of the following sports:

  • Bowling
  • Cross country skiing
  • Basketball

For this assignment, address the following:

  • Analyze the different energy systems in the body that contribute to the performance of the activities involved in that sport.  
  • Analyze the efficiency of each energy system across the spectrum as well as which energy system utilizes the most energy in the performance of the sport.  
  • Evaluate the potential drawbacks to each energy source for the sport chosen.

Your paper should be no more than five pages in length, excluding title and reference pages. You should use at least four additional scholarly sources in addition to the textbook. Format your paper and all citations according to APA style guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
