Which of the following most directly contributes to this phenomenon? A.  no input from the brain B.  no calcium to bind to troponin C.  no oxygen supplied to muscle D.  no ATP to break bonds between the thick and thin filaments E.  no energy for the synthesis of actin and myosin Triceps Extensor muscle Flexor muscle 3 Key Contracting muscle Relaxing muscle ...
