How many muscles do you use to take a single step forward?

We use 200 muscles to take a single step forward.

Muscles are one of those things that most of us take completely for granted, but they are incredibly important for two key reasons:

• Muscles are the "engine" that your body uses to propel itself. Although they work differently than a car engine or an electric motor, muscles do the same thing -- they turn energy into motion.

• It would be impossible for you to do anything without your muscles. Absolutely everything that you conceive of with your brain is expressed as muscular motion.

If you exercise daily, it’s important to maintain muscle health in order to avoid tears and strains. Check out these top five tips for keeping your muscles healthy from Premierortho.com.
