We follow up the episode “Can You Teach Speed?” with a deeper dive into muscle fiber types that we touched on in that episode:
- What’s the difference between fast twitch and slow twitch fibers?
- Does the mix of fibers tend to affect performance? Aesthetics?
- Is changing your mix of fiber types possible, and if so, is it even helpful.
Dr. Andy Galpin joins us again as expert for this discussion. Andy is a tenured Professor in the Center for Sport Performance at CSU Fullerton, and holds a PhD in Bioenergetics.
Our ideas start at about 13:18.
Andy starts dropping knowledge starting at around 22:53.
Huge thanks to Andy for being our expert once again. You can find him on Instagram: @drandygalpin and his website at andygalpin.com (where there’s tons of free information). You can also find his book with Brian MacKinsey, “Unplugged” on Amazon.com
