I like to move it, move it
A presentation on Muscles Diagram The smallest muscle is the Stapedius, which is in the ear. The largest muscle is the Gluteus Maximus, your buttocks muscle. Each hand has 37 muscles. You use about 30 muscles every time you smile. Muscles Cardiac Skeletal Smooth Cardiac muscles are only found in the heart. You can't control cardiac muscles. Skeletal muscles are connected to bones by tedons. You can control skeletal muscles. Smooth muscles are anything except for cardiac muscles that are uncontrollable. HOT About 85% percent of the heat in your body is produced by your muscles. Your muscles produce enough heat a day to boil 1 litre of water for one hour. Acupuncture Chinese healers believe that energy flows through invisible channels. Acupuncture heals and treats pain in the muscles. It is unknown why acupuncture works but it often does. Muscles are made of muscle cell bundles, which are made of muscle cells, which are made out of myofibrils, which are made out of protein strands. Myo means muscle. There are about 650 muscles in your body. Muscles account for about 40% of your body weight, while fat is only 10%. Where is it found in the body? The muscular system is found in almost all regions of the body. Most of them are skeletal muscles, which help you move. There are over 600 skeletal muscles.
The muscles that are not controlled by the brain are controlled by the autonomic nervous system. What does this body system do? What are its functions? The muscular system helps you move. Also, muscles are involved in other body systems as well, like your heart or stomach. Without muscles, you wouldn't be able to eat or breath! What do other cultures do to address the need of your muscles?
Chinese healers use acupuncture to heal muscles pain. See "Acupuncture" What are different technologies that have been invented or scientific research that has been done in the past? Present? Future?

How is it connected to other body systems? You move because skeletal muscles (the ones you can control) pull your bones to different positions. Your heart (which is a muscle) supplies nutrient-rich blood all over the body to other body systems. What are some of the diseases that challenge this part of the body? Muscular dystrophy, Myopathy, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Dermatomyositis, Polymyositis, Rhabdomyolysis, Compartment syndrome, are examples of common muscle diseases. Heart attacks are another example (the heart is a muscle). Are there any Canadian contributions recognized related to this body system? What are proactive behaviors one can take to keep this body system healthy?
Daily excercise up to one hour is good for your muscles. Building your muscles isn't important. The best thing is to tone them every day. It's better to excercise 1 hour every day that 7 hours for one day. You should always stretch before excercising or else you might injure your muscles. There's the Heart and Stroke foundation that help with people who have or have had heart attacks. Then there are Canadian doctors, who deal with patients with muscle pain and illness every single day.
The End Muscles only pull and don't push. Muscles usually come in groups so one muscle can pull one way and the other muscle the other.
