Have you ever seen a HIIP (High-Intensity Interval Training) person struggling to run a Kilometer? How about a marathoner who cannot run for Ten Kilometer? Well, the answer lies in the body structure and the intensity of the workout they have been doing to train themselves. What are slow-twitch and Fast-twitch Muscles? Generally, people have two types of skeletal muscle Fiber one is slow-twitch (type1) and the second is fast-twitch (Type2). Slow-twitch muscle basically enables you to endure and survive much longer because its primary motive is to increase stamina and enhancing the oxygen level in the muscle cells which allows your body to burn energy for a much longer time during the workout. Slow-twitch muscles are best for Aerobics, cardio, yoga, and warm-up exercise. Whereas exercises such as Running, Swimming, or Dreadful Gym Boredom (weight lifting ) need Fast-twitch muscles because the scenario like this needs an immense amount of energy with quick muscle contraction and relaxation just like carbohydrates which give a boost of energy, unlike fats which are stored energy in the body.Slow-twitch muscle fibers support long-distance endurance activities like marathon running, while fast-twitch muscle fibers support quick, powerful movements such as sprinting or weightlifting. Which is better Slow twitch or fast-twitch muscle? According to the research, the women have a greater distribution of type1 slow-twitch muscles and lower distribution of fast-twitch muscle. Now the question arises that is there a way to transform slow-twitch muscle to fast-twitch muscle?Slow-twitch muscle basically enables you to endure and survive much longer because its primary motive is to increase stamina and enhancing the oxygen level in the muscle cells which allows your body to burn energy for a much longer time during the workout. Well up till now there is no evidence that I can be transformed but fast-twitch muscle can be converted on to moderate twitch muscle through immense and resistance training but keep I mind fast-twitch muscles depletes the age as compared with the slow twitched muscle, so increasing muscle through gym may be less feasible in later life. Generally speaking, when muscles are forced to get out oftheir comfort zone to work differently than the workout quality progresses with pain and there is saying that there is no gain without pain so the pain is just to give you the motivation to achieve better goals in your life.
