I heard from my friend that if i am aiming for 100m , 200m freestyle, i should do heavy weight, low reps in the gym to activate those fast twitch muscle fibers. Is that true? He told me heavy weight, low reps = fast twitch. Low weight, high reps = slow twitch.

Move weight fast as possible even if it's slow

did your friend also talk to you about transition? from white to pink, pink to red or red to pink or pink to white?

and yes i know a little about this....i can show you the scar from a muscle biopsy that was done to determine muscle fiber composition.
(imagine a needle the size of a pencil that the doc has to stand up on and push in with both hands into your thigh).

totally serious about that.

24 of us had a ruined leg for about 3 days. mark was super po'd about that. when they (ui/ioc) asked a year later if they could do our shoulders....the answer was not just NO but HE77 NO!!!
