Conclusion

The muscles you have usually co inside with your somatotype Fast twitch muscle fibres (glycoltic fibres relying on glucose store for quick energy release) Fast twitching fibres contract fast hence the name, they produce large amounts of power and force. This type of muscle is anaerobic they tend to use glucose store. Sprinters would be an example of a performer who has a lot of these fibres. These performers could be called mesomorphic. Fast twitch muscle fibres (oxygenated and glycoltic ) These aren't fast twitching fibres but contract fast then the slow moving muscle fibres they contract wuicker then slow moving muscles therefore creating more force they use both aerobic and anaerobic energy. This means they still produce lactic acid. Slow twich muscle fibres (oxygenated) These are slow twitching fibres they don't product a great deal of force but they can work continuously for long periods of time they contain a lot more mitochondria then the muscle tissues this is because mitochondria is the sight of aerobic respiration. In the muscle tissue enzymes are braking down ...read more.
