The number of fast-twitch fiber is more in men compared to women.
Slow-twitch fiber glycogen depletion elevates moderate-exercise fast-twitch fiber activity and O2 uptake.
Two main muscle fiber types, slow-twitch and fast-twitch fiber, were distinguished by myofibrillar ATPase (acid pre-incubation) reaction according to Horak (1983).
The slower type of fast-twitch fiber can be induced to have increased blood innervation which allows two things to occur: 1) an increase in the power of the athlete to be able to be hold for a longer time, but 2) the absolute amount of potential power able to be generated is somewhat diminished.
Hakkinen and others have showed that heavy strength training not only increased strength, but also significantly decreased the time to reach a force of 2000 newtons, increased jumping height and produced fast-twitch fiber hypertrophy.
Higher percentages of fast-twitch fiber are shown to correlate with PSE (pale, soft, exudative) pork, meat condition (Linke, 1972; Larzul et al.
Both fast-twitch fiber types have larger diameters and faster force-generation capacity than slow-twitch fibers (MHC type I).
In these athletes, muscle strength, motoneuron excitability, fast-twitch fiber recruitment and reflex sensitivity are well developed (Delecluse, 1997; Ross and Riek, 2001).
In that respect, they benefit from their strength and from the fast-twitch fibers that give it to them.
Expression of aquaporin-4 in fast-twitch fibers of mammalian skeletal muscle.
Muscle fibers can be grouped into three major categories: slow-twitch type I fibers with high capillary density and high oxidative capacity adapted to endurance exercise, fast-twitch fibers type IIb, which have low capillary density and low oxidative capacity ideal for sprint and anaerobic performance, and type IIa fibers that show intermediate characteristics [13].
