Or does it just make the ones you already have bigger?
Muscle is torn and replaced.
I know but does weight lifting promote new(more) muscle fibers to grow.
yes new muslce is formed!
there is always muscle there. is there wasnt, you would be a bone with skin on it. It would also be impossible to move your arm.
i'll see your and raise you a
even Terri Schiavo had muscles.
I hope you are kidding
Yes. There could be a situation where there was absolutely NO muscle in the bicep......
well im pretty sure you dont actually create new muscle fiber, only enlarge what you currently have.
Which could mean that new muscle fibers are growing.
That would go against the whole 'new' part.
If that is true.
Some fibres may split
but is 20 like 30.....
it takes huge loads of stress to cause new muscle fibers to grow, or drugs (gh, slin)
Drugs wont make new muscle fibres grow
It is emerging research that under the right load and conditions muscle fibres MAY MAY MAY split, i.e its possible but you wont really see it happen much
you don't create new muscle cells.
yes, they will
the gist is under nearly all circumstances, muscle fibers get bigger. You do not create more of them.
Can you post the references too please
