I've got the power
How does the body respond to changing energy needs and what are
the implications for sports training programmes?
I've got the power is a group of four experiments all about what
limits our performance during exercise and how we produce the
energy that we require to move our bodies during different types of
exercise. In these experiments, the role of aerobic and
anaerobic respiration are compared and students investigate how
their bodies use ATP for muscle contraction and movement. Using the
provided respirometers, pulse
oximeters and blood pressure monitors
they will explore the physiological effects of exercise on their
The experiments can be carried out in the science classroom but
there is an opportunity for collaboration with your PE department
and use of their facilities. Download comprehensive teacher and
