Can u please tell me the sliding filament theory in an easier way? i am not able to get it. 

  • The contraction of striated muscle is called the sliding filament theory.
  • It describes the process used by muscles to contract.
  • The theory states that the muscle contraction results from sliding of thin actin myofilaments past the thick myosin filaments rather than by shrinking of myofilaments.
