Muscle Fiber Types and Training.
Karp, Jason R.
Strength and Conditioning Journal, v23 n5 p21-26 Oct 2001
The specific types of fibers that make up individual muscles greatly influence how people will adapt to their training programs. This paper explains the complexities of skeletal muscles, focusing on types of muscle fibers (slow-twitch and fast-twitch), recruitment of muscle fibers to perform a motor task, and determining fiber type. Implications for training are noted. (SM)
