    Or does it just make the ones you already have bigger?

    well im pretty sure you dont actually create new muscle fiber, only enlarge what you currently have.

    Which could mean that new muscle fibers are growing.

    it takes huge loads of stress to cause new muscle fibers to grow, or drugs (gh, slin)

    Drugs wont make new muscle fibres grow

    It is emerging research that under the right load and conditions muscle fibres MAY MAY MAY split, i.e its possible but you wont really see it happen much

    the gist is under nearly all circumstances, muscle fibers get bigger. You do not create more of them.
