We have a collection of human body muscle diagram to help you learn more about the topic. A body muscle diagram is used by different people for various uses. It can be used by a teacher or student for academic purposes. The following diagram below is the human body muscle diagram. Check out and click on the image to download it.
The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body. Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. Each of these muscles is a discrete organ constructed of skeletal muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves. Muscle tissue is also found inside of the heart, digestive organs, and blood vessels. In these organs, muscles serve to move substances throughout the body. You can see in the human body muscle diagrams below, the parts of the muscles.
There are three kinds of muscles we need to know about in the human body muscular system. Firstly there is the skeletal muscle, which is used for locomotion and skeletal movement. These muscles are often anchored by Tendons. A tendon is simply a fibrous connective tissues, from the muscles to the bone elements. A Ligament is often found in the joints of the body, and are connective fibrous tissues from bone to bone. The second type of muscle is the Smooth Muscle. The smooth muscles are often found within the organs and structures of organs. The third type of muscle is the Cardiac Muscle. The cardiac muscles are similar to the skeletal muscles.
