    Energy system characteristics:- We have three energy systems in the body that can provide energy in three different ways. Each system provides energy at different rates, depending on how quickly we want muscles to contract. For example: Muscular power and speed - we want muscles contracting as fast as possible; therefore we need the ATP-ADP-ATP energy equation to occur as fast as possible. Marathon running - muscles don't need to contract as fast as possible; however we want them to contract again and again for long periods of time, therefore the energy equation has to occur many times. Each energy system has characteristics that lend themselves to these different types of requirements. Energy can be put back into the ADP to ATP equation three different ways.
