The Body's Structure

The Body's Structure  


The body structure is constructed around the bone skeleton. Where two or more bones meet they form a joint, which is held together by tough bands of connective tissue called ligaments. The skeletal frame is covered by 656 muscles, which represent approximately 40% of the total body weight.

Both ends of each muscle connect to dense connective tissue called tendons, which attach the muscle to the bone through this tendinous linkage. The greater the tension, the stronger the pull on the tendons and bone and, consequently, the more powerful the limb's movement. The use of periodization will increase muscle size and tone, and will give tendons and ligaments the chance to adapt to increasing size.
