1

Muscular System

Movement

Maintenance of posture

Heat production

Stabilization of joints

2

Types of Muscle Contractions

Isotonic

Isometric

3

Isotonic

produce movement

4

Types of Isotonic Contractions:

Concentric

muscle shortens

5

Types of Isotonic Contractions:

Eccentric

muscle lengthens

6

Isometric

contractions in which muscle length does not change but muscle tension may increase greatly

(i.e. pushing against a wall)

7

Muscle Configurations

(7)

Circular

Triangular

Parallel

Unipennate

Bipennate

Multipennate

Fusiform

8

Phosphagen System

(ATP-PC System)

anaerobic

burns up very quickly

9

Glycolitic System

(glycogen-lactic acid)

anearobic

uses glycogen stored in the liver

results in muscle fatigue

10

Glycogen

muscle fuel component stored in the liver

11

Aerobic System

(Cellular Respiration)

uses fatty acids from fat, amino acids

sustained exercise

12
