Muscle Fatigue

Muscle Fatigue Monira Begum How muscles work and get the energy they need to work. Muscles need energy to work and move. (1) Their main source of energy is glucose. Glucose is made of a number of different types of carbohydrates (usually sugar) as well as milk and fruits. Glucose turns into other chemicals such as water and carbon dioxide which releases energy. (2)Your muscles get warm when using or burning energy. Glucose is sent to muscles through red blood cells; this is how muscles get...

 MUSCLE FATIGUE HOW DO MUSCLES GET THE ENERGY TO WORK? In muscles, it is essential that Calcium is present, as this gives the muscles the ability to contract and relax. For muscles to contract energy is needed: the energy can only be provided by the breakdown of a chemical called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). As ATP is broken down, a phosphate molecule is broken off, reducing the phosphate molecules, from 3 to 2. This produces adenosine triphosphate. However for the muscles contraction to continue...

Muscle Development

Factors Controlling Healthy Development Of Muscle And Bone. The food you eat affects every system and function in your body. A well-balanced diet ensures that your body has the raw materials to produce and maintain healthy, strong muscles and bones. On the other hand, poor dietary habits can produce deficiencies in vital nutrients, leading to poor bone and muscle development in children or the damaging of the body's ability to maintain strong muscles and bones in adults. Protein It is a major...

Skeletal Muscles

1. Discuss the relationship between distribution of muscle fiber type and performance. How might exercise training modify or change a person’s fiber-type distribution? Skeletal muscles contain multiple fiber types that are distinguished by their different myosin ATPase speed, and the development of their SR. The two main fiber types are type I and type II fibers. Type II fibers have a faster ATPase and a more developed SR than type I fibers. Type II fibers are also part of a larger motor unit,...
