Muscle is the motor of the body. Many people even some athletic trainers do not properly understand the functions of muscle. Muscles can be built easier by understanding how they work better. There are three main points to focus on. With these points in mind you can start achieving the body of your dreams in no time. The main points to focus on are the muscle types, functions, and characteristics.
Types of Muscle
There are three types of muscle. They are all important, but the main one you will probably be focusing on is the skeletal muscle. This is the muscle that is attached to the bone and moves your body. It is attached by things called tendons. Body builders spend most of their time making these stronger. The other two types of muscle are smooth and cardiac.
Smooth muscle is found inside the walls of your blood vessels, intestines, and others. The cardiac muscles control the heart. These two cannot be controlled; they do work involuntarily. But, in order to strengthen you skeletal muscles you must work them. They get worked when you move your body. So in order to make them grow it is important to know in which ways you should move your body.
Functions of Muscle
Muscles also have main functions that are very important to your body. It is important to keep your muscles strong so these functions will work properly. Their most important function is to move your body. Body motion is vital to keep this function working properly. Whether it is lifting, running, or just getting off the couch it is needed or else your muscles won’t function or grow properly. The next function of muscle is to maintain your posture, in other words keep you up straight.
Stronger muscles will help you keep a good posture. This is because they will be able to keep your body in the position it belongs helping you avoid injury. This is great for athletes and really anybody because as you get older you become more prone to injury. So, stronger muscle will help them function correctly making your life better and easier.
Characteristics of Muscle
Your muscles have many characteristics and understanding them can be very beneficial to discovering what is happening to them and what they are doing. The first characteristic is your muscles excitability. This is your muscle response to stimuli. Nervous impulses could be used as an example. This is important to know because when they do weird things you now know why and do not have to worry. The next characteristic is muscle contractibility.
This is when they shorten. An example could be when you flex your arm, your bicep contracts making it bigger. By contracting a muscle with resistance you will improve that its ability to contract, thus making it bigger. Muscle extensibility is the characteristic of stretching. An example can be when you do a straight leg stretch the feeling in the back of your legs.
