Muscle size of slow twitch fibre will get bigger (or never get bigger, just can increase muscular endurance)? How is the process of muscular endurance increasing?

Muscular endurance may be increasing due to specific adaptations in the muscle fibres and their oxidative capabilities (their ability to use oxygen). Things such as more mitochondria and aerobic enzymes within the muscle fibre, and improved capillarisation (better blood supply) means that slow twitch muscles can work for longer before fatiguing. Improved recruitment will also mean that
