Have you ever wondered, how on earth someone can lift up something really heavy? Well, it all thanks to human’s muscular system. You’ll never get to do anything if your muscle system does not work as it has to be. Just as the other body’s system, you also need to study the system of muscle, since without muscle, humans could not live. The primary job of muscle is to move the bones of the skeleton, but muscles also enable the heart to beat and constitute the walls of other important hollow organs. Therefore, in case you are in need for a medium to learn or teach about muscular structure, here is a handy of muscle diagrams in high definition that allows you to print it in larger size.
When we are talking about human’s muscular system, it is highly 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. This muscular system diagram shows all the major muscle groups on the human body from the posterior view. Scroll down to save and print.
There are many kinds of muscle diagrams provided in this post. You can choose which kind of diagram that you’re gonna use for learning or teaching. The interactive muscle anatomy diagram shown below outlines the major superficial (i.e. located immediately below the skin) muscles of the body. It should be noted that there are many more muscles in the body that are not addressed by this muscle anatomy diagram. We also provide you with the unlabeled version of the diagram for any educational evaluation.
All these diagrams are in high definitions and you are exactly able to print it in larger size to make the muscular systems more detailed. Feel free to save all the diagrams!
