contracting and relaxed muscles (extra credit)
This occurs when the force generated by the muscle exceeds the load opposing its contraction. During a concentric contraction, a muscle is stimulated to contract according to the sliding filament theory.
The muscular system contributes to maintaining homeostasis by working with other body systems to regulate body temperature and dilate or constrict blood vessels close to the skin's surface. It also keeps the same temperature because when muscles contract they release heat to raise your body temperature. If your muscles are not working correctly then you might have duchenne muscular dystrophy. It will eventually cause all of the muscles to stop working and stop your muscles from contracting to release heat.
