alternate aerobic–anaerobic metabolism

Quick Reference

The type of metabolism required by those taking part in alternate or mixed sports (the majority of team sports, e.g. basketball, soccer, and water polo) in which the energy demands vary in intensity and duration. Participants of alternate sports benefit from having the capacity to produce high levels of muscular power, the capacity for quick recovery after a performance, and the capacity to repeat the same performance after a short time-interval.
