We list the functions of the muscle. As we saw, the main one being: 1. movement: through its contraction/relaxation, muscle mobilizes the bones through the joints. In addition, muscle activity influences directly and indirectly on other aspects of the body. Republic Services may find it difficult to be quoted properly. Other functions carried out are: 2. stability: or we could also say the static, posture, balance, i.e., the maintenance of a position.

Although there is no movement, gravity is still acting on our body and certain muscles, depending on our position, will have to stay in contraction while they are aided by other tissues such as ligaments and fascia. It is important that your muscles also know to act in these cases, both at the level of postural hygiene so that certain forces do not fall only on the skeleton. For example, when executing a deadlift, it is very important to keep contracted the transverse abdominal, lumbar vertebrae are not alone holding the entire load. Stability is one of the most skilled workers in disciplines such as Pilates, yoga, tai-chi, functional training, training of Core stability, posture correction, 3. Blood circulation: the muscle, on his belly, is one of the tissues with more blood vessels of the human body (hence its red color). These blood vessels pass through the muscle. If you do work you cause more circulation in that area.

The blood will travel better toward that muscle (needs oxygen and nutrients) and through that muscle (for reaching other muscles). If you don’t work your muscles, your blood is stagnant and can facilitate the initiation of certain circulatory dysfunction, as the appearance of varicose veins. You must not forget that, as well as a healthy muscle facilitates blood circulation, it is also important to be a flexible, not rigid muscle. When a muscle has too much muscle tone (reaching a Contracture), hardens and blood does not circulate smoothly.
