Building Muscle: Cells on the Move

Read on to learn exactly how fitness classes leave you with more muscle or better tone.

Bulky upper-body muscles might have hindered early humans who had to chase their prey across the plains, but it could help those who often had to climb trees to adjust their satellite dishes. That’s why the body builds muscle according mostly to use: do enough curls, and the biceps expand. As anyone who has experienced post-workout soreness could intuit, those curls are actually a form of controlled damage, making thousands of miniscule tears to the muscle tissue that beckon autoimmune cells to show up alongside testosterone and other hormones. The white blood cells help switch on satellite cells, which are similar to stem cells. Before they're activated, satellite cells aren't doing much—instead, they lie dormant around muscle fibers until they're called into action to repair torn tissue.

This isn't the only kind of cellular transformation at work in growing muscles. Long muscle cells, which contain several nuclei, can also begin to change type after a workout. Certain kinds of muscle fibers are equipped to handle brief bursts of effort but will quickly become tired if asked to do more intense work. These are the first to disappear as someone starts an exercise routine, as they're converted into fibers with more endurance. This principle is so dramatic that a sports scientist can generally tell whether someone is a professional athlete or a professional mattress model by examining a minute sample of muscle tissue.

CrossFit Vital

A sport and fitness enthusiast his whole life, owner and head trainer Patrick Hallock honed his discipline as a Sergeant in the US Army. Today, he channels his accrued wisdom and experience into CrossFit—a high-intensity, total-body fitness program that draws on techniques from across the athletic spectrum, including track and field, gymnastics, and weightlifting. In his 6,000-square-foot gym, he leads workouts that incorporate functional movements to work all muscle groups, having students flip tractor tires, jump atop plyometric boxes from a standstill, and sling heavy medicine balls into the mouths of ailing giants. Since each exercise features motions from everyday life, such as pushing, pulling, and lifting, it’s a system that can help prepare participants for anything from playing sports to carrying heavy groceries.

Great place! Everyone is super welcoming and helpful

Patrick Hallock (owner and trainer) is great. He works with each person individually to improve performance. He sets the bar high, but will scale the workout for those who are unable to do the full version (myself included). He will definitely get everything out of you!
