The role of the movement in our lives

We already know that the ability to move is the most important property of the animal organism. The development of the motion subdued the device and all vital functions of the organism.
First, biologically man is a representative of the animal Kingdom. Therefore, the structure and functions of our body in the course of millions of years of evolution was formed in close connection with their participation in the implementation of the locomotor acts. Not surprising that a certain amount of motive activity is for a person is the most important condition of preserving normal health and performance. We will return in the last talk of how great today, the threat of hypokinesia, which carries with technical progress.
Second, the movement is the basis of labour activity. As we already know, by his rise above the world other animals person owes work. At the dawn of the formation of human labor activity was primarily muscular work. Movement of the upper extremities, which occupied more and more place in labour, contributed gradually the fact that people have mastered the vertical position and bipedalism. Without movement would not be a prerequisite for labour and, therefore, for the formation of man.
Thirdly, the movement is a necessary part of our mental activity. The father of Russian physiology I. M. Sechenov, the proceedings of which we are not just going to say, belong to the well-known words: "All the endless variety of external manifestations of brain activity is finally to just the phenomenon of muscle movement. Laughs whether the child at the sight of the toys, smiling whether Garibaldi, when out for excessive love of country, if the girl is shaking when the first thoughts about love, does the Newton international laws and write them on paper - everywhere final fact is muscle movement.
When the great singer and artist F. I. Chaliapin was asked how he achieves exceptional expression of his gestures on stage, he said: "the Gesture is not the body movement, and the movement of the soul."
The direct executors functions of movement are the muscles. However, they are not the soloist in our ensemble in the performance of movements. Their activity is inseparably connected first of all with osteo-articular mechanisms. Not accidentally, we often speak of locomotor apparatus, which includes three systems: bone (skeleton), ligamentous-articular and muscular.
