In terms of timing, what is the difference between anaerobic energy production via ATP-PC and Anaerobic Glycolysis? ?

    By ATP-PC I assume you're talking about creatine phosphate?  If so, then in terms of timing, PC would get used up first (all gone within 10-20 seconds), then anaerobic glycolysis would kick in.

    In terms of relative rate of energy release (i.e. µmol ATP/g/min),  PC would yield ATP at a rate between roughly 160-600% faster than glycolysis can.
