The human body is made up of three types of muscle:

  • Skeletal muscle This is "Voluntary muscle" as in it can be controlled consciously, and it is used for movement and maintaining posture. 42% of an adult male's body mass and 36% of an adult females body mass is made up of skeletal muscle
  • Smooth muscle This is muscle that contracts without conscious control. It is in the form of thin layers of unstriated cells and it is found in walls of internal organs including the stomach, bladder, blood vessels and the intestines (hollow organs). It is not found in the heart, however (see cardiac muscle)
  • Cardiac muscle This type of muscle forms the majority of the wall of the heart, and it is not found anywhere else in your body. Cardiac muscle is highly resistant to fatigue (thankfully!). It has a large number of mitochondria (often called "cellular power plants") which generate most of a cell's adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is used as a form of chemical energy. These mitochondria enable constant aerobic respiration.
