However, scientists examining the effect of resistance training on muscle growth have suggested that high-intensity resistance training may cause an increase in the number of muscle fibers, known as muscle hyperplasia, based on animal research. Interestingly, sport scientists have reported that elite bodybuilders have a greater number of muscle fibers than trained control subjects. These investigators suggested that the greater fiber number seen in the bodybuilders may be attributed to the years of high-intensity resistance training, but subsequent studies were unable to confirm those results.

Increase in rapid force production from slower-velocity training) The improvement in motor performance resulting from resistance training Muscle Action. Resistance training with eccentric (ECC), concentric (CON), and isometric (ISOM) muscle actions increases muscle strength. , CON and ECC muscle actions), ISOM training can increase dynamic strength (especially when multiple joint angles are trained) and dynamic training can increase ISOM muscle strength. However, the trained muscle action will yield the greatest improvement when tested specifically.

As a result, the capillaries have a much greater surface area to which to supply blood. Although these adaptations may not greatly impact strength or power development, they may have important implications for the endurance capability in those muscles. In addition, muscle hypertrophy does appear to be accompanied by a proportional increase in ultrastructural muscle components. Lastly, resistance training results in higher concentrations of anaerobic substrates and enzyme activity, leading to higher energy levels during a workout.
