About This Project

Ever wondered why some people build muscle faster than you? We know some people have more fast-twitch muscle fibers than others and muscle adaptations are regulated by your myonuclei (the cell components responsible for DNA replication, transcription, and protein synthesis). Thus, we believe the number of myonuclei differs between fiber types, and this explains much of how and why muscle grows and recovers at different rates between people, and between exercise programs!
