What sports use the lactic acid system?

Any sport or event requiring a sustained burst of high-intensity exercise will use the lactic acid system and cause the body to go into oxygen debt. For example 400m Sprinting, Speed Skating, Crossfit competitions & Circuit training.

Keeping this in view, what is the lactic acid system used for?

Overview of the Energy Systems Anaerobic Glycolysis or Lactic Acid System uses carbohydrates (glucose) stored in the muscles as Glycogen. Because no oxygen is required to re-synthesise ATP, energy is produced quickly. Also because no oxygen is used in the process lactic acid is produced as an end product.

One may also ask, how is the lactic acid system used in football? ATP-PC System Soccer players use all three of these energy systems in a game. If sprinting the length of the field with the ball, the player would utilise the lactic acid system. But if he is booting the ball or tackling a player, he would utilise the ATP-PC system as an explosive source of energy.

Similarly, it is asked, what activities use the lactic acid energy system?

Examples – The lactic acid energy system is the dominant system in sports, which require a high intensity for longer than 10 seconds. Sports such as 200m or 400m run, or 50m and 100m swim are highly reliant on the lactic acid system.

What sports use the glycolytic system?

The anaerobic glycolysis system is the dominant energy system in the following sports:

  • Athletics: 200 m dash. 400 m dash.
  • Badminton.
  • Canoe/Kayak: Slalom events (all events). Sprint, women`s events (all events).
  • Cycling, BMX events.
  • Football (soccer).
  • Gymnastics: acrobatic events (all events).
  • Handball.
  • Hockey (ice).
