Hardcore gains rely on a hardcore edge.
We intend on giving the athlete each and every weapon known to man, and then
some! With that said, we have introduced a new section on the site, which
is dedicated to muscle fiber ratios. It will allow you to determine at a
click if a muscle group is primarily slow, or fast. This month marks the
introduction of this new feature, but we will add more muscle groups, and
further in depth information on a continual basis! Here are the
instructions for using this feature
1. All of the body parts will be displayed in the Anatomy Section of the
site. Simply Click the Anatomy button on the navigational screen and click
the option marked " muscle fiber ratios " Once there, simply
select a body part.
2. You will need a flash player to view them. If you do not have
click here to download it
3. Once you click a body section, such as the thighs, Each muscle
group will be listed on the left of the screen. You will
simply choose a number, type it in and the muscle you seek will be highlighted. It
is all explained within each aspect of the body. Just click the hyperlink,
its actually very simple.
4. These are what the numbers you will read stand for
A. If you see something like so Muscle X is 35 percent Slow Twitch and 65
percent Fast Twitch, then this is self explanatory.
B. On many occasions, we do not list ratios but rather the primary make up
of a muscle group. For example, I might say that the hamstrings are
Primarily Fast Twitch Phasic. Phasic means fast or explosive movements
work it. Or I may say a certain forearm muscle is primarily Slow Twitch
Tonic - Meaning it has a majority of slow twitch muscle fibers. Therefore
some muscle groups are listed with exact numbers, and others are listed wholly.
As stated, we will continually add and update
this section, with new muscle groups, further fiber ratios, and greater
Additionally, we have several articles on the
site, explaining how to target specific fiber types. I suggest utilizing
these to their fullest.
