Did You Know?

Muscle Runner

 

Did you know almost half the human body’s weight is made from one of three types of muscle tissue?

They are…

 

  •  Skeletal muscle or “voluntary muscle” is anchored by tendons to bone and is used to effect skeletal movement such as locomotion and in maintaining posture.
  •  Smooth muscle or “involuntary muscle” is found within the walls of organs and structures such as the esophagus, and stomach. Unlike skeletal muscle, smooth muscle is not under conscious control.
  •  Cardiac muscle is also an “involuntary muscle” but is more akin in structure to skeletal muscle, and is found only in the heart.
