What exercise is best for muscle 1 type fibers?

The type one muscle fibers are characterized as being the slow twitch oxidative muscle fibers. They contract slowly, they have the highest tolerance to fatigue as compared to the other types of muscle fibers, and there main fuel source tends to be triglycerides. This being said the best way to train this type of muscle fiber would be with low intensity endurance type exercises, such as jogging a long distance, or walking, or performing 50 push ups vs. 8 reps on the bench press.

Why are endurance athletes able to exercise longer than non-endurance athletes?

There are basically two types of muscle fibers in our bodies that we have voluntary control over. One is called "red" muscle, and the other is called "white". Red muscle fibers have the ability to perform work over longer periods of time without fatigue. White muscle fibers are able to work hard, but for a shorter period of time than red fibers. An endurance athlete will have exercised his or her red muscle fibers (through long exercise sessions), so that they grow stronger and bigger. This means that their body will have the ability to do work for much longer than a person who only exercises for shorter periods (and exercises their white muscle fibers).

Are there instructions to follow after my carpets are cleaned?

Right away after cleaning, it’s best to allow carpets to dry for 6-8 hours before walking on them. Walking on them may flatten the fibers. Use air movers if required to help air circulation as this will speed up the drying time.
