      Not really. Muscles allow us to push and pull objects, and even stand up. So without them we’d just be piles of skin, organs and bones, and not able to go anywhere.

      No I think muscles are the ideal way to do their job (moving our bones and bodies around) so they’re the best thing for that job!
