Sliding Filament Theory By: ROw One

Action: Kicking a Soccer Ball

The sliding filament theory explains the mechanism of muscle contraction based on muscle proteins that slide past each other to generate movement

kicking a ball primarily engages the muscles of the upper leg the quadriceps and hamstrings as well as the glutes. In addition, your core, hip and foot muscles, as well as the shoulders.

According to the sliding filament theory, the actin (thin) filaments of muscle fibers slide past the myosin (thick) filaments during muscle contraction, while the two groups of filaments remain at relatively constant length.
