of muscle fibers. Fiber Hyperplasia is known to be when muscle fibers split in half during intense weight training (Liberty University, Applied Muscle Physiology, 2017). When this occurs each half of the muscle fiber increases its size to a parent fiber. Albeit, this mechanism has only been shown to occur in animal models through studies with no concrete evidence to have taken place in humans (Liberty University, Applied Muscle Physiology, 2017). Therefore, this shows that the reason in which Sara thought her soreness occurred from is not possible. For Sarah to reduce DOMS she should start training or a specific exercise at a low intensity while increasing and making slow progress. This slow progress will allow the muscles to adapt to the stress that training and exercising can put on the muscle to reduce the “incidence or severity” of DOMS (Powers & Howley, 2015, p.491). In addition, another component to reducing muscle soreness is by decreasing the eccentric part of the muscle action during an exercise or training. By utilizing this mechanism, it will allow any chance of microtears occurring to decrease. An innovative

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
