    Links between aerobic and anaerobic systems:- There is a small amount of energy given off here (which is used for ATP production). However, if the energy required is not needed quickly, it will move into the Krebs cycle. The Krebs cycle is a complex series of chemical reactions. Think of it like a wheel going around that can change speed on demand. As the Krebs cycle goes around, oxygen enters at this point. In addition, fat can also enter and be broken down (this happens when the energy requirements of the muscles are low, i.e. walking). A result of the Krebs cycle is CO2. Once the Krebs cycle is complete, the remaining products move into the electron transport system, where the rest of the breakdown occurs. So, to a large extent, the amount of energy the aerobic system is able to produce is determined by how fast the Krebs cycle is able to spin around. This, in turn, is dependent on the amount of oxygen being delivered to the muscles. The amount of oxygen we can take in and use for energy production is called oxygen uptake. If we can increase the O2 uptake, we increase the capacity of the aerobic system and the amount of energy it is able to produce.
