Body series: anterior view part 2

Posted on May 30th, 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 a 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 lower front region of the body.

13. Adductor magnus
14. Sartorius
15. Gastrocnemius
16. Soleus
17. Extensor hallucis longus tendon
18. Entensor digitorum longus
19. Tibialis anterior
20. Quadriceps femoris, 3 of the 4 muscle heads
