In this article, we build a self consistent mean field deterministic model for the muscular contraction. The two main variables are the number of free myosin heads and the number of myosin heads attached to the actin, just after attachment. The model is natural in the sense that it respects the physico-chemical natural constraints. We calculate the stationary state, prove that it is stable and calculate the efficiency.
