All the muscles of the body are continually being remodeled to match the functions that are required of them. Any muscle that is used more than optimal level hypertrophies, and thus its total mass increases. Atrophy occurs when the muscle is not used causing a decrease in muscle mass. Electromyography is a record of the action current showing muscular activity under diverse functional conditions.
