The answer is true. People have two types of skeletal muscles, type 1, which are slow twitch muscle fibres and type 2, which are the fast-twitch muscle contraction. The slow twitch muscle fibers have a better aerobic capacity and are used in long periods of activity. This type of muscle fiber is dominant in the individuals who carry out long periods of exercise, such as marathon runners. The type 2 are dominant in athletes who rely on quick bursts of energy, such as sprinters.
