    No, but you can make his white fibers act mroe like red fibers, but he will never be a marathon man

    why you'd want to do that is beyond me

    Yep...this kinda ties into what I was talking about the other day re: sprinters. I was a sprinter but also ran 5 and 10K. Most of the time, the 5-10k runners could not ALSO sprint.

    I have also been an advocate of training methods that stimulate a variety of fiber types (like WSB, 5x5, etc...) because people with a high ratio of certain fibers in certain muscles might get more overall growth (thinking of Arioch and his triceps...would never grow...found out he was of predominately one fiber type in his tris).

    In terms of weights do "Bodybuilder" type training

    high reps, short rest periods, continous tensions, controlled slow movement.

    CCJ...your g/f's pics are so cute. I'm curious though...everyone's awkward around 11. Can you post an 11 year pic? If that is really cute, then we are all free to hate her.

    I'll see, I have some younger photos, but I'm not sure how old she is in them though
