Question

How do muscles work so than we can move?


Solution

Some muscles in our bodies are attached to bones, and when they contract, the bones move. That’s how you can eat delicious food…just lifting food from your plate, to your mouth, requires your ‘bicep’ to contract.

‘Contract’ means the muscle fibres (the stuff that makes up the muscle) stack up and become shorter. When the bicep shortens, it lifts your hand towards your face!

Every time a muscle contracts, another muscle relaxes. In the case of your biceps, it’s the tricep that relaxes when you bring food from the plate to your mouth. They work together in pairs!!
