Why do you think your muscles contract uncontrollably when exposed to a strong electric shock? Dont try this at home!

    The electric shock is carried throughout the muscle fibers and stimulates the sarcoplasmic reticula to release their calcium stores.
    The electric shock speeds up the rate at which ATP binds to myosin cross-bridges.
    The electric shock directly causes myosin cross-bridges to bind with actin.
