Voluntary Muscles And Involuntary Muscles

Voluntary Muscles: The Voluntary Muscles are the muscles that are used to move bones. Some Examples of voluntary muscles are the Biceps in your arms and the Muscles in your face. The Involuntary Muscles are used to line up and contract other parts of the body. An example of these muscles can include the smooth muscle. The Cardiac Muscle Is the muscle that is only found in the heart which is made as a wall made of involuntary muscles. Also other things that the Voluntary muscles can do include making facial expressions from your face muscles, it allows you to flex your arm, and can help when you were to squeeze the your hand to strength. Also some of the most important parts of the system are the connective tissues that can keep your muscles from not working the right way.
