Back And Forth....

a: Shortening sarcomere ~
b: movements of a person rowing a crew boat

What: "In many ways, the interaction of actin and myosin in a shortening sarcomere is like the movements of a person rowing a crew boat. The rower has to prepare her/his body for the power stroke, and then the oar is put in the water. Next the rower releases her/his energy as the person pulls on the oar and the blade of the oar moves through the water." See the link for a video....
