Using the heart, arteries, veins and capillaries,
the circulatory system moves blood back and forth from the heart to the lungs and through the rest of the body. As blood moves through the body, it carries oxygen and nutrients to all the organs. It a Building muscle is not just about repetitive exercise to bulk up your biceps. That kind of work is only part of what makes muscles grow. All the body's systems work together. In the same way that exercise helps build your heart, your heart controls the circulatory system which works to make strong, healthy muscles.
The Cardiovascular Systems and Muscular Systems
Cardiovascular Systems
The cardiovascular system of the human body has one distinct job; that is to pump the blood to the different parts of the body. The central organ in this
system is the heart. It is made up of cardiac tissue and its job is to pump the blood. It first pumps the blood to the lungs to get oxygen, and then to the various parts of the body for distribution. The blood travels through a
series of arteries and veins. The difference between the two is that arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the body, and the veins return the oxygen-free blood back to the heart. The circulatory is not complex, but it does an imperative job for the body.
How Does the Muscular System Work With the Circulatory System?
All the systems of the body work closely together to maintain homeostasis--the dynamic balance of internal conditions which the body works constantly to preserve.
The muscular system and circulatory system
have an especially important relationship. The two systems keep each other healthy, and their interaction is crucial on a daily and a long-term basis--without it our muscles would be unable to carry out our normal activities, and our heart health would eventually deteriorate.
Muscular Systems
The muscular system is the largest system in the body. Muscles are located in practically every region of the body. The limbs are almost entirely made up of muscles. There are over forty muscles located in the skull. Muscles are unique because they can contract. This contraction sets muscles apart from all other tissues. There are three different types of muscles tissue, cardiac, skeletal, and smooth.

Potential Problems
If the cardiovascular system fails to supply muscles with adequate oxygen, the muscles will cramp and eventually cease to function. A long-term lack of exercise will cause the number and size of blood vessels serving the muscles to atrophy--shrink-- along with the muscles themselves. If the muscles are not employed for regular exercise, the overall health of the heart will suffer. The heart will weaken and lose mass, while fatty deposits build
up in the arteries.
Active muscles demand huge amounts of oxygen, and the circulatory system works hard to provide it. Blood carries oxygen to the muscles. When the body is at rest, blood carries nutrients to the muscles so that they can repair and rebuild themselves. Blood also carries away the waste products that hardworking muscles produce, back out through the lungs to be filtered.
Benefits to the Muscular System
During periods of intense physical activity, the circulatory system will bypass the digestive organs so that it can provide extra blood to the muscles. Meanwhile, the small blood vessels that serve the skin will expand so that more warm blood can reach the surface of the body.This helps the extra heat generated by active muscles to escape from the body. As muscles increase in mass over time, the number of size and blood vessels connected to the muscles increase as well.
Benefits to the Circulatory System
The healthier and more active the muscle system, the healthier the circulatory system. When we move, the pump of our muscles prompts blood to return to the heart through the veins. Regular exercise increases both the strength and size of the heart. It also clears fatty deposits out of blood vessels. Regular exercise also boosts production of the enzymes that destroy blood clots. The heart learns to increase its stroke volume--the volume of blood one ventricle pumps per beat--in response to the rigors of strenuous exercise, and this in turn lowers the heart rate. This can ultimately allow your heart to beat hundreds of thousands
times less over the course of a lifetime--so exercise
saves your heart a lot of work.
The best way to keep both your circulatory system and your muscular system healthy is to get regular aerobic conditioning. The single most critical measure of how healthily you age is the health of your cardiovascular system. The most important factor for maintaining that health is regular exercise.
