Yes, biologists often refer to skeletal muscle cells as fibers, although they aren't the same as plant fibers.

Answer this questWhen the motor neuron releases acetylcholine into the neuromuscular junction, the acetylcholine binds to receptors in the muscle fiber that allows positively charged ions to enter the muscle fiber, which results in the muscle fiber contracting.

Yes, it means that you will gain more myofibrils per muscle fiber. A muscle fiber is a muscle cell, and everybody has about the same number. When you train your muscles, they will develop more myofibrils inside the muscle cells. So you cannot change the number of muscle fibers, or cells, but you can change the number of fibers, or myofibrils, inside them. The end result is more muscle density, not more muscle cells.


A muscle fiber, sometimes called a muscle cell is made up of hundreds or thousands of individual cylindrical muscle cells. Each of these groups is bound together by connective tissue which is covered again by a connective tissue sheath.
