The sarcomere is composed of various proteins, including myosin and actin. The myosin myofilaments are made up of projections that resemble golf clubs, which give it its thick appearance. These projections, referred to as myosin heads, are globular structures that extend perpendicularly from the thick myosin filament to the thinner actin filament. The actin filament is surrounded by two additional proteins, troponin and tropomyosin. These proteins regulate the interaction between the myofilaments during muscle contraction.

Following this period, increases in muscle cross-sectional area become the predominant factor in strength improvement.
