Choose one of the learning experiences below and write a 250-word essay response. Provide a comprehensive explanation of your findings and include your thoughts on how this newly acquired knowledge will benefit your training practice. If the experience calls for participation, be sure to describe your experience and what you learned from participating.

"Give an example of an exercise routine utilizing each of the three major energy pathways. How long does the body utilize each pathway as its main energy source? Are the examples you gave specifically designed to utilize that particular pathway or is it just the nature of the exercise?"

Now I'm a little confused about these response essays. I don't really know how to write this in typical essay format. Should I start by introducing the concept of energy and the body, and describe the three physiological pathways used to produce ATP in exercise? Then go on to describing the exercise routine? Or should I just jump right into describing the routine since it's a response? Do I need a conclusion? If so, how would I conclude?

Thanks.

A good idea would be to restate the questions and then continue on with your answer to the questions. Since they're only allowing you 250 words, a typical essay response is not ideal (you'll use too many of the allotted words pointlessly). I hope I've helped you!

Well, yes the question can be restated in the sense that the intro of the essay will refer to an exercise that uses the three energy pathways.

"Give an example of an exercise routine utilizing each of the three major energy pathways. How long does the body utilize each pathway as its main energy source? Are the examples you gave specifically designed to utilize that particular pathway or is it just the nature of the exercise?"

Give a short intro para (4 sentences) about the exercise and the 3 pathways.
Give a body para (4 sentences) about the process, how long it takes, the design/nature of the exercise, etc.
Give a short conclusion that summarizes what you said and what it all means. (3 sentences)

I hope that helps!!!! :-) Remember that the first sentence of each paragraph in academic writing should be a TOPIC sentence that tells the main idea.
