Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. Each of these muscles is a discrete organ constructed of skeletal muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves.In these organs, muscles serve to move substances throughout the body.

Muscle cells contain protein filaments of actin and myosin that slide past one another, producing a contraction that changes both the length and the shape of the cell. Muscles function to produce force and motion.

In the muscular system, muscle tissue is categorized into three distinct types: skeletal, cardiac, and smooth. Each type of muscle tissue in the human body has a unique structure and a specific role. Skeletal muscle moves bones and other structures. Cardiac muscle contracts the heart to pump blood.

All muscles are made of a kind of elastic tissue. Each muscle consists of thousands, or tens of thousands, of small musculus fibers. Each muscle fiber is about 40 millimeters long. It consists of tiny strands of fibrils.

The strongest muscle based on its weight is the masseter. With all muscles of the jaw working together it can close the teeth with a force as great as 55 pounds (25 kilograms) on the incisors or 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) on the molars. The uterus sits in the lower pelvic region.

1.Chia pudding.

Chia seeds contain a decent amount of protein and 18 of the 20 essential amino acids. It’s not enough to support a high-protein diet, but could be beneficial in adding a little extra protein and fiber, along with a significant amount of fat which helps in building muscles. Think of it like peanut butter.

2.Protein smoothie.

Muscle-building protein shake
  • 20g dark chocolate (85% cocoa)
  • 100ml coconut milk.
  • 25g scoop whey protein isolate.
  • Pinch of cinnamon.
  • 1 banana.
  • 50g porridge oats, soaked in 100ml of water for five to ten minutes.

Some great sources of protein for smoothies include yogurt, nuts and nut butters, silken tofu, and milk or soy milk. This will help build muscle—which is a good thing, whether you aspire to be a bodybuilder or are just looking to tone up. Opt for energy-boosting add-ins like fruit, oats, and (again) yogurt.

3.Apple and handful cashews.

Like all nuts, cashews provide an excellent source of protein. Protein is one of three macronutrients your body uses for energy, and it is particularly important for rebuilding muscle tissue and creating new cellular compounds.

4.Homemade energy balls.

Snack on these energy ball recipes to save cash and calories compared to … “glue” while half a scoop of protein powder adds a touch of muscle-building power.
