Week 10 blog

Personally, my favorite topics this term was when we learned about the various muscles fibers in our body as well as the mechanisms needed for contractions to occur. Prior to this course I did not know the details of each fiber type (Type I, Type IIa/x). Learning about various fiber types in depth was very informative not only for class, but also real world applications. Understanding the details of how myosin and actin are able to work together and generate force was interesting as well. These are things that occur in our body all the time without us putting much thought or effort into it. Learning which muscles types are advantageous/disadvantageous for specific activities and knowing that it is possible for an individual to change their fiber types based upon their needs was neat as well. Overall, I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot these past ten weeks.
