There are many things in the world that you find incredible, such as you are still a single dog…
Today, we will discuss a more interesting topic: what are the strongest muscles of the human body? Is that your tongue? Or your penis? Or what?
Not long ago, many websites issued a statement stating that “the strongest muscle in the human body is the tongue”, which has led to the crazy reprint of countless fitness enthusiasts.
We have to look at it, the most powerful muscles of the human body are obviously not the tongue!
But many people say that my tongue works every day, no matter how tired it is in bed or at dinner!
Sounds like it makes sense…
Why is the tongue not tired?
The research team at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry believes that “normally, the tongue will not fatigue.” (If your tongue feels tired, it must be something unusual, go see a doctor)
Because there are many redundant structures in the muscles of the tongue, you only need to activate different muscle fibers to accomplish the same task. In layman’s terms, this muscle is tired and the other is replaced. The result is the same.
The nerves in the tongue are very well developed. In the brain 12 pairs of cranial nerves, 5 pairs are involved in the tongue, which is a very large proportion in the cerebral cortex management.
The tongue is also the most flexible muscle in the human body. Because it is the only muscle that has only one end connected to the human body, it does not attach any bones.
The average tongue length of an adult man is 8.5 cm, and the average tongue length of an adult woman is 7.9 cm.
The tongue is not the strongest muscle because it does not work all the time, but many muscles work in turn.
Is it a penis?
Some netizens said that the list of the strongest muscles of human beings should leave a position on the penis.
But you haven’t heard of it, is Tintin’s other name “sponge”? Tintin itself has no striated muscle.
Its main body is mainly composed of corpus cavernosum, skin and meat membrane, and its “growth” mainly depends on congestion. The only skeletal muscle in the penis is at its root, called the pelvic floor muscle.
Counting the root pelvic floor muscles is not the strongest muscle in the human body. Everyone is different for the strength of this muscle.
Therefore, the penis is not the strongest muscle.
So what is it?
What is the strongest muscle in the human body? In fact, muscle strength is manifested in many aspects, such as absolute strength, speed strength, strength endurance and dynamic strength.
The first place in measurable absolute strength is the masticatory muscles, and the absolute strength champion that cannot be measured is the uterine muscle.
The strong contraction during childbirth makes the uterine muscles produce the strongest strength of the human body. But this power is affected by hormones and other biochemical factors, so it cannot be measured.
The first place in the dynamic force is the extraocular muscle. The extraocular muscle can hold at least 10,000 eye movements during the course of reading an hour.
According to the study, the extraocular muscle movement during the movie is more frequent than reading, and the hourly is more than 10,000 times. You think about how long you can watch the movie.
The heart muscle is the king of strength endurance because it jumps from birth to death.
Among the isolated muscles, the most powerful is the gluteus maximus. The gluteus maximus is the main anti-gravity muscle, which maintains the human erect. All human erect movements must be performed by the gluteus maximus.
So, do you know who is the real king of muscles?
