    occlusion training is known to recruit fast twitch muscle fibers, even at low intensities. some theorize that it is because under hypoxic conditions (occlusion training-low supply of oxygen to muscles), the slow twitch fibers tire out too fast, forcing the body to recruit the fast twitch fibers. that part i understand, but why do the fast twitch fibers, after being recruited, GROW? (i want something more solid than the usual "micro tears repair" theory). thanks guys.
