Anatomy




Anatomy is the branch of science that deals with the structure of the body parts of living things. How they are formed and how they are arranged. Anatomy is concerned with gross and microscopic (histology) observation of the body's structures with the aim of describing them with as much accurate detail as possible. The study of anatomy is closely related to, and coupled with, physiology, which deals with the functions of the body parts.

Infraspinatus Muscle: Location, Action, and Trigger Points

The infraspinatus muscle is a thick, triangular muscle which occupies most of the concave, dorsal surface of the scapula, a part of the scapula called the infraspinatus fossa. In other words, this muscle covers almost the entire scapula (shoulder blade) below the scapular spine.

One Good Anatomy and Physiology Text - Books Trainers Need

I am a firm advocate of basic texts for everyone interested in learning about training, nutrition, physiology, exercise science, etc. So much confusion could be saved if the average trainer and trainee didn't get all his or her information from the "popular press". Sure, popular press cannot be a good a place to find information, but people lack a firm foundation from which to think critically and assess the quality of the information presented. A thorough grounding from more scholarly sources can help tremendously, although this is not the only requirement! Although these are not the only books you need, two of the primary sources you should have are an anatomy text book and an exercise physiology text book.

What Is The Wrist?

The part of the body that most people think of as their wrist is actually the distal end of their radius and ulna bones, or, in other words the end of their arm bones.

The wrist itself, however, also called the carpus from the latin, is actually made up of eight small bones called carpal bones.

Forearm Extensor Muscles - Origins, Insertions, and Actions, with Video Presentation

The following is information on the extensor muscles of the forearms. These videos were produced to help students of human anatomy at Modesto Junior College study their anatomical models.

They are done with models showing the muscular structure of the arm.

The following two videos present an overview of the major flexor muscles of the forearm, which are the muscles of the posterior compartment.

Each video is followed by information on the origin, insertion, and actions of each muscle covered in the video.

Forearm Flexor Muscles - Origins, Insertions, and Actions, with Video Presentation

These videos were produced to help students of human anatomy at Modesto Junior College study their anatomical models.

They are done with models showing the muscular structure of the arm.

The following two videos present an overview of the major flexor muscles of the forearm, which are the muscles of the anterior compartment. These muscles not only are responsible for flexion of the wrist, but are also the extrinsic muscles of the hand, responsible for much its gripping strength.

Each video is followed by information on the origin, insertion, and actions of each muscle covered in the video.
