Why does more muscle mass make us stronger?

In: Biology

More fibers that will contract at the same time….imagine rüber bands berween two poles. The more rubber bands, the more they will be pulled together

To add to that is the concept of muscular hypertrophy, or increasing the muscle fiber volume (size). When we lift, we break down muscle fibers and they build back with more volume over time. Think of it as a larger rubber band between two poles vs. a smaller one. The larger band will create a greater force.
