Week 9 Post

My favorite topic during this term was learning about the fast twitch vs slow twitch muscle fibers. Especially with me being an athlete that runs a lot and lifts, it was interesting to know when I use each muscle. I knew that different muscles were used when doing different activities but I didn’t know that fast twitch was for power and slow twitch was for endurance. I also enjoyed learning how you could “switch” the fibers of your body, the more you run, the more your body adapts and enhances the slow twitch muscles. Overall I really enjoyed all of these topics within the course, especially because I want to be a physical therapist. this course is going to help me in the future and really had my interest.
