anaerobic training adaptations

Quick Reference

Physiological adaptations associated with regular anaerobic training that require near maximal force production. These adaptations include increased muscular strength and speed of action; improved muscle buffering capacity and greater tolerance of changes of tissue fluid pH during intense activity; and increased activity of enzymes involved in the ATP-PCr energy system and glycolysis. Anaerobic training at speed also improves efficiency of movement.
