How does resistance training affect body composition?Total body weight?Body fat?free mass?8. Which occurs with resistance training – hypertrophy or hyperplasia?9. Hypertrophy is caused by an increase in the size and # of myofibrils per muscle fiber butalso by an increase in the amount of contractile; capillary; and strength of connective tissue,and.10. Do slow twitch or fast twitch muscle fibers tend to respond more to progressiveresistance training?11. The all or none principle of motor unit recruitment means that all muscle fibers fireor not at all.12. Which motor units are activated first – the low threshold or high threshold?13.
