Anaerobic Creatine Phosphate System (ATP – PC; CP) Very High Intensity (95% - 100% Max HR) Short Duration (0- 10 seconds) Anaerobic Glycolysis (Lactic Acid) Relative Intensity (80% - 95% Max HR) Longer intense periods (30 secs – 2 minutes)
AerobicCardiorespiratory Low / Sub – maximal intensity (60% - 85% Max HR) Long / prolonged periods (over 2 minutes) Role is rapid restoration / rapid recovery of CP stores during Periods of rest Light activity between sprints

Most sports require a solid aerobic base on which to be able to function efficiently. Touch is no exception (example on page 212), however this system is not the main energy system required by touch players…………….
Predominant system used (80%) Creatine phosphate anaerobic energy system such as Sprints These systems relate to ALL touch players (pg216) Used in a supportive role (8%) Lactic acid anaerobic energy system such as repeated sprints
All touch players need to be able to do these. What are the fitness components that relate to each of these? Sprint Ball skills Change direction quickly Accelerate
