Publisher Description

If you’ve ever attempted to learn the origins, insertions, innervations and functions of all 600+ muscles in the body… you’ll know what a soul-destroying task it can be. That’s why we created muscle anatomy charts; your condensed, no-nonsense, easy to understand learning solution. Validated and aligned with popular anatomy textbooks, these muscle cheat sheets are packed with high-quality illustrations. You’ll be able to clearly visualize muscle locations and understand how they relate to surrounding structures.


A complete list of muscles

We’ve created muscle anatomy charts for every muscle containing region of the body: Upper Limb, Lower Limb, Head and Neck, and Trunk Wall.

Each chart groups the muscles of that region into its component groups, making your revision a million times easier. For example, upper limb muscles are grouped by shoulder and arm, forearm and hand. Next to each muscle, you’ll find it’s origin(s), insertion(s), innervation(s) and function(s). 


Muscle origins and insertions

Most muscles are attached to bones either end via tendons. The muscle origin often describes the more proximal attachment point of the muscle, while the muscle insertion point refers to the distal attachment. In our cheat sheets, you’ll find the origin(s) and insertions(s) of every muscle. Finally, a reliable source (and good looking too!).


Muscle innervation

See at a glance which muscle is innervated by which nerve. The good news? Adjacent muscles which serve similar functions are often innervated by the same nerve, which you’ll find conveniently illustrated on the cheat sheets.


Muscle functions

Flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, rotation… whether you’re a doctor, physiotherapist or yoga teacher, knowing the functions of a given muscle is very important. The problem? With more than 600 muscles in the body, it can feel impossible to keep track of them all. Our muscle anatomy charts make it easier by listing them clearly and concisely. Phew.
