Fast-Twitch Skeletal Muscle


Skeletal muscles have two types of fibers:
Fast-Twitch and Slow-Twitch

Fast twitch (or Type 2) fibres contract rapidly, are anaerobic in nature (no oxygen supply), and are used for strength/speed based activities because they can exert great forces, but they are easily exhausted.
