Your muscles change a lot over the course of your life. In this episode, Patrick breaks down everything you need to know about how muscles form, grow, and how to stay strong later in life. » Subscribe to Seeker! 🤍bit.ly/subscribeseeker » Watch more Human! 🤍bit.ly/HUMANplaylist » Visit our shop at 🤍shop.seeker.com While some aspects of aging are hard to picture and are the topic of ongoing research, one that we know quite a bit about is muscle. But muscle is complex. Not only is it always adapting to how we use it, our muscle also changes multiple times over the course of our lives. Today, we’ll learn about how our muscles change from the time we’re just a fetus, to our last mortal moments. There are three types of muscle: cardiac muscle, smooth muscle, and skeletal muscle. As you might’ve guessed, cardiac muscle exists in our hearts. Smooth muscle can be found around our blood vessels and certain organs. And finally skeletal muscle is the type of muscle that lets you move you body, and it is also the focus of this episode. Skeletal muscle is the most massive group of tissue in your body accounting for about forty percent of your body weight, so where does it come from?

These fibers are distributed throughout our bodies and come in many different shapes, sizes, and forms.” How to Fight Sarcopenia 🤍🤍healthline.com/nutrition/sarcopenia “Sarcopenia, also known as muscle loss, is a common condition that affects 10% of adults who are over 50 years old. While it can decrease life expectancy and quality of life, there are actions you can take to prevent and even reverse the condition.” What is muscle atrophy? 🤍medlineplus.gov/ency/article/003188.htm “There are three types of muscle atrophy: physiologic, pathologic, and neurogenic. Physiologic atrophy is caused by not using the muscles enough. This type of atrophy can often be reversed with exercise and better nutrition.” This Seeker health miniseries will dive deep into the cellular structures, human systems, and overall anatomy that work together to keep our bodies going.

I'm mad at you for making me think about what it would be like to have to pump your heart manually lmao
Wow this was the most depressing video I have ever watched in my life
Suzanne said fetuses aren't humans tho
wrong video title.
Did I miss it?
Doesn't answer the question in the title
I've been on several diets for a few months and have gained a lot of muscle. I just wanted to share this with anyone who is struggling with muscle growth... it can be done! Awesome video I'm happy you emphasised the adage "if you don't use it, you lose it." So many people are unaware of how little effort is actually required to avoid losing as much as our dysfunctional society suggests...
You could've made a better video
Reduce the BGM so we can hear your voice clearly
This is what one of the worst examples of click bait
I opened this to learn about muscles, found myself learning about his grey hair.
Ageing is scary, bro
when you become confused between video and ad
You have mislead so many people with this video. This may be healthy, but NOT how you build muscle. "want to get huge guys? eat 2 small meals a day and consume 16g of protein" ..oh boy.
Very well put together and informational video thank you.
You lost me at embryo
Can fat people lift more?
In my late teens & early 20s I felt very weak..but now I’m older and gained muscle through exercise, my muscles twitch faster than b4 when i sprint 🤔.. I feel lighter & more agile 🤷🏽♂️so people, exercise a bit.. i think it works 😃
3 min into the video and still cant explain how muscle grow...
