Or is the instance of hypertrophy so rare it's almost nonexistant?
who fucking cares... lift weights and eat
FT fibers have the most potential for hypertrophy. People who lift have a smaller percentage of Type IIb and a larger percentage of Type IIa though.
Shitty genetics. I wish I had more Type IIb fibers.
it's not like you know what type or percentage of muscle fibers you have
Well I'm assuming not a lot since I'm not that fast.
you beat me to it.
threadstarter, quit psyching yourself out and just go lift some weights
What are you talking about? I lift weights.
there's a lot of factors that go into speed besides your fiber type
Can you link me to anything? I'm curious
you are seriously thinking wayyy too much about this shit, man
I don't understand why lifters would have less type IIb than IIa, wouldn't lifters need the fastest and most powerful fibers available? If IIb fibers aren't employed in lifting than what are they used for?
they don't really know why it occurs
you are such a faggot. do the world a favor and drop a bar on your throat
hmm supposedly type IIb fibers are fatigued within 7.5 miliseconds and are not employed by lifting, but I'm finding conflicting information on their uses
muscle fibers are different with everyone and determined by genetics for the most part, at least thats according to the cooper institute and the studies that were performed in my personal training book
Ceaze what do you think of the 80% test (doing a 1RM then testing how many reps one gets at 80%) for determining predominant fiber type?
i think determining your fiber type is pointless
hey you son of a bitch, i saw that fanny pack comment
check out Dave Tate in the background
jorts + fanny pack + high tops + high socks FTW
powerlifters aren't exactly the epitome of stylish
Yeah and he uses a wide conventional stance. But Big Mike is a pretty wide guy.
pshhhh... whatchu talkin bout Ceaze
