The immediate source of energy for all cellular activity, including the contraction of muscle fibers is?
adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
The nonoxidative pathway which bioenergetic pathway is sometimes called the "anaerobic" pathway?
the primary advantage of which bioenergetic pathway is that it can produce large amounts of ATP to sustain prolonged exercise, without producing fatiguing by products?
the oxidative pathway
Within a skeletal muscle fiber, large amounts of calcium are stored in the?

type I muscle fibers
The ATPase that is used to produce a muscle fiber twitch by way of sliding filaments is found on?
on the myosin cross bridge heads
The capacity of endurance training to increase the amount of ATP produced by oxidative phosphorylation is due to?
The increased number of mitochondria
A single motor neuron and all of the muscle fibers that it innervates is a?
motor unit
Both resistance training and endurance training result in the conversion of one muscle fiber type to another. what are the types?
