    Ah, that's why when we train using smaller weight training, we train only the slow one, so we need to train more and more, so we can train our fast motor unit.

    Regulation of muscular force:- To regulate the force a single muscle produces, the brain combines two control mechanisms: 1. Recruitment The motor units that make up a muscle are not recruited in a random fashion. Motor units are recruited according to the size principle. Smaller motor units (fewer muscle fibres) have a small motor neuron and a low threshold for activation. These units are recruited first. As more force is demanded by an activity, progressively larger motor units are recruited. This has great functional significance. When requirements for force are low, but control demands are high (writing, playing the piano), the ability to recruit only a few muscle fibres gives the possibility of fine control. 2. Rate coding
