Sprint training represents the condition in which increases in muscle shortening speed, as well as in strength, might play a significant role in improving power generation. This study therefore aimed to determine the effects of sprint training on 1) the coupling between myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform expression and function in single fibers, 2) the distribution of MHC isoforms across a whole muscle, and 3) in vivo muscle function. Seven young male subjects completed 6 wk of training (3-s… CONTINUE READING
