Short Distance Runners:
For short bursts of power, your body depletes its phosphocreatine supply to generate Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), and contract your muscles as rapidly as possible. Your body can’t move without ATP being used – it’s the “product” your body purchases with metabolic “currency”. In terms of generating enough ATP, carbohydrates are the most easily used macronutrient.
