muscle: This muscle contracts conscious control. It is found in the walls of our internal organs. This muscle is positioned in the diaphragm, eyes, blood vessels, intestines, stomach, bladder and in the uterus of females. It is also sometimes called "smooth muscle" because it lacks the stripes which are visible in voluntary (striped) muscle.
Another example is where this type of muscle lines the walls of the to push blood back to the heart from the lower body. This is necessary because the blood has to move against gravity. During childbirth, these muscles line the uterus help to push the baby.

muscle: This special type of involuntary muscle is found only in the walls of the heart. It contracts the heart to pump the blood through it. When an athlete warms up, it is this muscle which makes the blood pump faster to get to the muscles. Average heart rates are between 60-80 bpm (beats per minute). It is different from other involuntary muscles in that it contracts rhythmically and never tires. It can be trained like any other muscle which is why we do " " exercise. Cardio = Heart, and Vascular = Blood vessels.
