The recruitment order of the different fiber types has important implications for exercise performance as well as for ventilatory demands. Typically motor units are thought to be recruited based on the motoneuron size (size principle) [52]. The small, S units tend to be recruited first for most tasks, followed by the FR, FI, and finally, the FF units. The recruitment of faster units is likely linked to the increased force demands as well as increased demands for high-velocity movements. Thus, at low levels of activity, only the S and, perhaps, some FR units would be recruited.

Resting Ppa range between 8 and 28 mm Hg between diastole and systole, with a mean pressure of 14 mm Hg [89]. The Ppw pressures average 3–15 mm Hg, with a mean of 5–8 Page 24 mm Hg [90]. Thus, the resting driving pressure through the pulmonary circulation is about 7–8 mm Hg. 0 L/min), the mean Ppa average 21–23 mm Hg, whereas Ppw average 10–12 mm Hg; thus, the driving pressure increases to 11–12 mm Hg. The increase in driving pressure, although small, may increase the number of perfused capillaries and may increase the distention in already perfused capillaries.
