Suggested Use

I have used a modification of this activity in my Physiology and Muscle Physiology courses for numerous years.  It is a good activity to teach students about muscle adaptation by plotting data and interpreting graphs.  I have also added data from the article by Costill et al.  J. Appl. Physiol 40:149-154, 1976 "Skeletal muscle enzymes and fiber composition in male and female track athletes" since this adds an additional groups of athletes and female athletes.
