Dear subscribers,

I have some problems with musculature interpretations.
1) Differences in mass of a muscle are due to an increase in the number
of fibers or are due to an increase in the mass of the fibers?

2) Which effect related to force performed by a muscle has an increase in the
mass of the fibers, if exists?

I would greatly appreciate some help about these questions?
Thank you in advance.
