Ode to Ireland
Erin Go Bragh!
Here's an Irish Welcome...
Here's Céad M���le Fáilte to friend and to rover
That's a greeting that's Irish as Irish can be
It means you are welcome
A thousand times over
Wherever you come from, Whosoever you be

Read the article from the link below and answer to the following questions/prompts.
Comparing the various Skeletal Muscle Fiber Types
Skeletal Muscle - Anatomy and Muscle Fiber Types
1. Compare and contrast the different types of muscle fibers that make up skeletal muscle. Do so in regards to functionality...what are they good for? If you were to put the three muscle fiber types on a spectrum ranging from best for aerobic activity (long-low-moderate intensity) to best for anaerobic activity (short, intense bouts of exertion). Where would each type fall?
2. Explain what the adaptive response to a change in stimulus (i.e. training) of the muscle fiber types would be if one were to switch from regular strength training (weightlifting) and sprinting to more of an endurance/aerobically focused training regimine.
3. Why do sprinters often have very different body types than endurance runners? What stimulus and response can account for this variation?
