    I'm new to this, so I'm not exactly how to go about looking for this. It can usually lead me to articles that are over my head.

    I'd just like to know where to go about to understand how the following systems work.

    Immediate Energy (ATP-CP System) - Phosphagen System

    Short-Term Energy (The Lactic Acid System) - Anaerobic System

    I'd like to understand them and ultimately learn how to make these systems more efficient through training and possibly diet.

    There are three helpful websites.

    I know I found them myself, but I have to put effort.

    This sounds like "Gym and human physiology". I have some bigger friends majoring in gym courses. All of those systems my friends told me can be found in biochemistry and physiology text-books. Pick up a big one for more more references. Whenever whatever, you are just all there.
