  • Although Bones provide leverage and form the framework of the body, they cannot move body parts by themselves.  Motion result from the alternating contraction and relaxation of muscles.
  • Muscles constitute 40-50% of total body weight.  Muscular strength reflects the prime function of muscle i.e changing chemical energy into mechanical energy to generate force, perform works and produce movement.
