Introduction

Have you ever questioned yourself....what would happen if I didn't have a muscular system? Well your lucky that your reading this. A muscle is an organ that holds your bones together and helps them move.

Structures and Functions

How do muscles move bones and joints? Tendons (ten-duns) are attached to your muscles and bones. Your ligaments (lig-u-ments) are like a rubber band and they can stretch like one too. Your muscles can not bend so they pull on your tendons to pull on your ligaments to move your bones and joints.

It needs a smooth muscle (smoo-th).
