What are the functions of voluntary and involuntary muscles?

1 Answer

Voluntary muscles are the muscles that help you walk,talk, pick up things, run, jump and do all the basic or complex movements you do everyday. Voluntary muscles are mostly located in the arms ,legs ,hands, and feet.

Involuntary muscles are located more within the body like your lungs, and intestine urinary bladder, etc. They help you in breathing, in propelling food along gut but you dont have to think about using them or make them move they just do it naturally even though you can stop them or make them go.
