Oxidative phosphorylation is responsible for the production of ATP occur in the electron transport chain (ETC)
Another way to synthesize ATP is through substrate level phosphorylation where a substrate with phosphate molecule attached to it will donate its phosphate to ADP molecule hence ADP is converted to ATP, a three-phosphate high energy molecule. Bear in mind that production of ATP molecule requires high energy therefore it is endergonic reaction. The energy is supplied through breaking the bond in the substrate molecule to release a phosphate group, and this reaction is exergonic.

The main aim of Kreb’s cycle is to harvest high energy electrons for ATP synthesis in the ETC
This interactive video explains how Kreb’s cycle works
Glycogen metabolism is divided into catabolic reaction (glycogenolysis) and anabolic reaction (glycogenesis).
