    How to use "Pecs" in context?

    There are essentially two types of muscle found in the human body: fast twitch and slow twitch. Fast twitch muscles are used for short, intense bursts of activity, such as flexing your arm quickly or running. Slow twitch muscles are used for a more sustained effort, like lifting a heavy object. Muscles are composed of bundles of fibers, which are arranged in parallel. The two types of fibers are responsible for how quickly a muscle can contract and how its strength and fatigue. Populations of fast twitch fibers are found predominantly in the arms, chest, and abdomen, while slow twitch fibers are more plentiful in the legs and back.
