Let’s know more about our muscle fibers.

Our muscle fibers are divided into two main types.  Slow twitch and fast twitch.

Slow-Twitch Fibers:

Slow-twitch fibers contract slowly and totally depend on oxygen as it is its main source of energy.  Slow-twitch fibers can be used for longer periods of time.

Eg:  Slow-twitch fibers are much needed by the athletes who run long distances.

Fast-Twitch Fibers:-

Fast-twitch fibers work exactly the opposite way to slow-twitch fibers.  They contract quickly and even though they fatigue more quickly, they provide strength and speed.  Fast-twitch fibers rely on an energy-carrying molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and glycogen as its main source of energy.  The drawback of Fast-twitch fibers is that they can be active only for a short span of time. 

Eg: Fast-twitch fibers are much needed by the sprinters who require short but huge bursts of energy to complete their sport.

There are different types of exercise forms available to know which form of twitch will work for you.  Slow-twitch fibers get stimulated through aerobic exercises and Fast-twitch fibers get stimulated through weights, sprints, and circuits.

Quick Weight Loss Regime

It is a kid known gallop truth that we can lose maximum weight with slow-twitch fibers by doing some cardiovascular exercise routines.  But recent studies in sports science prove that women who concentrate on stimulating their fast-twitch fibers by doing weight training, sprints and kickboxing lose more fat and weight than the women who concentrate on stimulating slow-twitch fibers.

A study from Boston University showed that, by pumping iron you can increase the muscle mass which will reduce your body fat, which ultimately reduce overall body weight.  It also helps in reducing the chances of occurrence of diabetes in adults.

The fast-twitch workouts involve weights, sprints or kickboxing moves which will help you burn fat up to eight hours after the workout.  Whereas, the slow-twitch workouts which involve long runs, extended swims or cross-training sessions will help you burn fat up to one hour after the workout.

Effective Combination of Fast and Slow Twitch Fibers

An effective combination of both fast-twitch fibers and slow-twitch fibers will earn more results than done in singles.  The success tip for losing your weight is in your hands now.  Combine both the exercise routines to get best out of them.
