Skeletal muscles are voluntary as they can be controlled by our own will.


Voluntary muscles are those muscles which are controlled by the will of an individual i.e. controlled by the individual's brain.
The person can take decision on the movement of the muscle.

Hence the movement of the skeletal muscle is decided by our own will hence being a voluntary muscle.
