Slow-twitch muscles are more beneficial than fast-twitch muscles for cardiorespiratory fitness because Slow-twitch fibers have a very good blood supply - so much so that they are often referred to as red fibers. This plentiful supply of blood ensures that slow-twitch fibers receive a large amount of oxygen, which allows them to work for a long time before becoming fatigued. In contrast, fast-twitch fibers have a relatively poor blood supply and are subsequently referred to as being white in color.
