Background: The architectural characteristics of muscle (fascicle length, pennation angle muscle thickness) respond to varying forms of stimuli ( eg, training, immobilisation and injury ). Architectural changes following injury are thought to occur in response to the restricted range of motion experienced during rehabilitation and the associated neuromuscular inhibition. However, it is unknown if these differences exist prior to injury, and had a role in injury occuring ( prospectively ), or if they occur in response to the incident itself ( retrospectively ). Considering that the structure of a muscle will influence how it functions, it is of interest to understand how these architectural variations may ...


Post-Exercise Protein Synthesis Rates Are Only Marginally Higher In Type I Compared With Type Ii Muscle Fibres Following Resistance-Type Exercise, René Koopman, Benjamin G. Gleeson, Annemie P. Gijsen, Bart B. L. Groen, Joan M. G. Senden, Michael J. Rennie, Luc J. C. Van Loon Jan 2011

We examined the effect of an acute bout of resistance exercise on fractional muscle protein synthesis rates in human type I and type II muscle fibres. After a standardised breakfast (31 ± 1 kJ kg−1 body weight, consisting of 52 Energy% (En%) carbohydrate, 34 En% protein and 14 En% fat), 9 untrained men completed a lower-limb resistance exercise bout (8 sets of 10 repetitions leg press and leg extension at 70% 1RM). A primed, continuous infusion of l-[ring-13C6]phenylalanine was combined with muscle biopsies collected from both legs immediately after exercise and after 6 h of post-exercise recovery. Single ...
