Your hypothesis does not seem plausible to me. Physical conditioning builds muscle strength. Demyelinating neuropathies damage the sheath on the moter nerves and short out the signals. If the signal doesn’t get to the muscle, it doesn’t matter how strong the muscle is, it won’t work. It’s like shorting out the ignition on a “muscle” car. It won’t go.
