Moving the human bodyMuscle-an organ that contracts and gets shorter- this provides the force to move your body parts.Muscles of thebody
Muscle ControlVoluntary muscles- muscles that you are able to controlExamples are leg and arm muscles -most of the muscles that attach to bonesInvoluntary Muscles- you can not move them consciously. They just keep workingExamples- heart , blood vessels
Types of Muscles-skeletalSkeletal Muscles-muscles that move bonesAttached to bones by tendonsMost numerous in the bodyLook striped or striatedVoluntary muscles you can control when they move
Types of Muscles-Smooth MusclesSmooth muscles- nonstriatedInvoluntary cannot control them consciouslyMove the internal organsContract and relax slowlyExample- small intestine, stomach muscles
Types of Muscles-Cardiac MuscleCardiac muscle-found only in the heartInvoluntary you cannot control when it beatsStriationsContracts about 70 times a minute every day of your life.

How Muscles WorkSkeletal muscles-when one muscles contracts- another muscle relaxesMuscles always pull- never pushMuscles use glucose chemical energyProduce thermal (heat) energy when they contractMuscles that are not exercised become smallerHow muscles work

What Muscles DoSkeletal muscles work in pairs to produce movement.
Body MovementsFlexing of the hamstring.When you bend your knee, the quadriceps muscle relaxes and the hamstring muscle contracts.
Body Movements cont.Extension of the quadriceps.When the leg is straightthe hamstring musclerelaxes (stretched) and the quadriceps muscle contracts or shortens.
