We can summarize that the human body uses available duel sources in a very efficient way. Utilization and efficiency is dependent upon timing. Knowing this, it's obvious we should use efficiency to our advantage. individuals interested in performing both anaerobic activities (to improve and/or increase their lean muscle mass) and aerobic activity (to burn body-fat) should perform these activities in the proper sequence to obtain maximum results.
Performing anaerobic activities before aerobic activities will enable the exerciser to utilize their fresh stores of available ATP and glucose for their anaerobic activities when needed. Also by using a portion of the stored ATP and glycogen prior to aerobic exercise the body may start to burn fat sooner than the standard 20 minute guideline, thus increasing exercise efficiency.
