Muscle growth occurs Oxidative Stress and Muscle Size, Type, and Action 49 mainly by increased fiber size and in some cases, increased fiber number.

Oxygen supply to Type I fibers'is greater than Type II because of increased capillarization surrounding Type I muscle. Intramuscular oxygen transport within Type I fibers is enhanced via elevated myoglobin levels, which gives Type I fibers its signature red color. The substrate of choice in Type I fibers is fatty acids derived from relatively large triglyceride stores found in close proximity to the mitochondria. In the process of producing ATP, increased oxidative enzymes in Type I muscle act in redox reactions inside the mitochondria and reduce oxygen to water.
