Slow-twitch fiber glycogen depletion elevates moderate-exercise fast-twitch fiber activity and O2 uptake.
Slow-twitch fiber type percentage was correlated positively with grilling loss, whereas an inverse relation between fast-twitch fiber type percentage and grilling loss was observed.
Normal aging leads to larger slow-twitch and smaller fast-twitch motor units, with an overall increase in slow-twitch fiber mass.
Endurance of the muscle is determined by slow-twitch fibers and while power is determined by fast-twitch fibers.
However, the soleus is comprised primarily of slow-twitch fibers (80 to 100%), which have lower hypertrophic potential in comparison to type II fibers (50).
Although the mechanisms underlying such differences between fast- and slow-twitch fibers are unclear, one potential explanation is that the different expression pattern of NOS isoforms between fiber types is associated with the different results of metabolic changes following L-NAME treatment.
PRT specifically works to strengthen both fast-twitch and slow-twitch fibers in muscles, says Wilson.
It's great that you are creating a better balance by focusing on the slow-twitch fibers that increase your aerobic capacity.
What's the difference between light meat and dark meat, or slow-twitch fibers and fast-twitch fibers?
This finding was particularly interesting because it is exactly opposite of what would be expected from conventional fiber type-based explanations of EMG frequency, where fast-twitch fibers would have higher frequency EMG spectra than slow-twitch fibers.
This would have resulted in an increase in the number of type I slow-twitch fibers at the expense of type II fast-twitch fibers.
