LEAN MUSCLE PROTEIN: high protein rich powders to build lean muscle.
Lean muscle is a concept related to lean body mass. Lean body mass is used to calculate basal metabolic rate.
What is Lean Body Mass?
Lean Body Mass (LBM) = Total Weight – Fat Mass.
LBM includes the weight of:
- Body Water
- Muscle Mass
What are Muscles?
Muscle is a band or bundle of tissue consisting of fibers that have the ability to contract. In addition to water, muscles mostly consist of protein, particularly actin and myosin, the interaction of which converts chemical energy into mechanical energy. Muscle gives the body movement. Muscles are divided into groups, each of which performs a specific function in the body. Skeletal muscles, which are attached to bones, are generally the most visible when not obscured by a layer of fat. Lean muscle is less of a scientific term and more a term of art that refers to muscle that is independent of, and not obscured by, fat.
Functions of the Muscles
Movement. Skeletal muscles attached to the skeleton move the body by moving bones. The muscles in the walls of some of our visceral organs squeeze to produce movement of fluids and other substances through the hollow passage ways as well as regulating organ volume.
Maintenance of Posture. Some skeletal muscles contract continuously to maintain posture, enabling the body to remain in standing or sitting positions
Joint stabilization. The role of muscle tone in stabilizing and strengthening joints.
Heat generation. Muscle contractions produce heat that plays a vital role in maintaining normal body temperature at 37°C (98.6°F)
Characteristics of Muscles
Muscle Tissue possesses some unique characteristics that help to differentiate it from other bodily tissue such as the following;
Contractility. A notable characteristic of muscles are that they can contracts forcefully. Muscle cells shorten and generate a strong pulling force as they contract.
Excitability. Nerve signals or other factors excite muscle cells, causing electrical impulses to travel along the cells’ plasma membrane. These impulses then stimulate the cells to contract.
Extensibility. Muscle tissue can be stretched by the contraction of an opposing muscle.
Elasticity. After being stretched, muscle tissue can recoil passively and resume its usual resting length.
What is the difference between anabolic and catabolic pathways?
Catabolic reactions break down molecules and release energy by breaking down complex molecules to simpler compounds.
Anabolic reactions build larger molecules from smaller ones, they consume energy to do this.
