The main reason I ask is that I have seen studies which claim that resistance training can promote calorie burning of ~100 calories / min (food calories of course). At this rate of expenditure I can't see the body being able to provide for it with digestion because the rate at which you would need to be able to absorb food would be much too high. I also have not been able to find the efficiency ratios for the three main fule pathways in the cell (phosphagen system,glycolysis,oxidative phosphorylation). I remember reading a year or two back that creatine phosphate cycling was really inefficient, ~4%, which seems reasonable as it has to provide energy very fast. but can't track down where I read it to, it was on usenet somewhere.
