Body Series: Anterior view part 1

Posted on May 23rd, 2014 by Shari´ Parks

I’d like to wrap up this series with a few images. Muscles are either attached directly to a bone, or to a tendon that is attached to a bone. There are about 700 muscles in the human body, and they vary in size. From the tiny muscles that wrinkle the forehead to the larger muscles of the high. Each movement of the limb is the result of a number of muscles working together.

Here’s a recap of the superficial, most outer layer, of the muscles in the top front of the body.

1. Temporalis
2. Masseter
3. Sternohyoid
4. Sternocleidomastoid, SCM for short
5. Pectoralis major
6. Serratus anterior
7. External abdominal oblique
8. Brachioradialis
9. Lumbricals
10. Iliopoas
11. Pectineus
21. Tensor fascia lata
22. Flexor carpi ulnaris
23. Palmaris longus
24. Flexor carpi radialis
25. Flexor digitorum superficialis
26. Rectus abdominis
27. Triceps
28. Brachialis

30. Deltoid
