Muscle Basics, Part 1: Cells, Proteins, and Sarcomeres

“We often think of muscles only in the context of biceps, triceps, pecs, and quads, but to do so ignores the fact that there is more than one type of muscle cell in the human body. There are, in fact, three types of muscle cells:

  1. Skeletal muscle cells drive movement and shape our physique.
  2. Cardiac muscle cells create the rhythmic and persistent contractions of the heart to circulate blood.
  3. Smooth muscle cells, the type found in vascular walls, intestine walls, and the uterus, act slowly create movement along tubular tracts.”
