The effects of sprint training on the contractile properties of human muscle fibres obtained by needle biopsy were investigated. Individual fibres were mechanically skinned and activated by Ca(2+)- and Sr(2+)-buffered solutions at pH 7.1, and allocated to distinct populations on the basis of their contractile characteristics. The majority of fibres sampled pre-training could be separated into the three major fibre groups: Populations I (24/70, 34%), II (25/70, 36%) and III (18/70, 26%), which… CONTINUE READING
