  • When you engage in very low intensity activities like lifting a spoon to your mouth, your brain recruits motor units that have a smaller number of muscle fibers and the fibers that make up these smaller motor units are slow twitch, meaning they don't contract as fast or contract with the same level of force as type II fast twitch motor units and fibers.
