      Actually their function is contracting and getting you around… They have more mithocondria becuase contraction takes up a lot of energy

      For a movement or locomotion, together with skeleton or not. Endoskeleton is where they are attached and got their name from. Skeletal muscle cells have contractile proteins, actin and myosin, that provide an ability for contraction and relaxation. Yes, of course they need energy for that function as another member here told previously.
