Quick Reference

Myoglobin-rich striated muscle (slow twitch, type I muscle) that is used for long-term activity such as maintenance of posture and that relies on oxidative metabolism. Fast twitch muscles (type IIa) are also myoglobin rich and have a faster contraction speed than type I. A second type of fast twitch muscle (type IIb) is used for rapid but relatively infrequent contraction, has less myoglobin, and relies more on glycolysis.
