Human Body Muscle Diagram

Stan 01/05/2012 7

Hi Folks,

I always found a diagram of the human body to be very useful when it came to training. Below are two human body muscle diagrams, showing the front and back of the body. I’ve labelled the diagrams up to show the main human body muscles. I hope you find them as useful as I do.

Now that’s my bit over, making pretty pictures. I’ll leave it to the experts now, to explain a little bit more about the human body. The following information was taken from a range of professional websites, so thanks! I had no idea that the human body has over 656 muscles, although there are some experts who claim that there may be upward of 850. Muscles play an important and vital role in the body. There are three types of muscle found in the body: cardiac, skeletal and smooth. Muscles cause motion, either in the structures of the body or of the internal organs.

The neck muscles and massive triangular muscles of the back stabilise the head and shoulders and permit a range of complex movements. The most powerful muscles in the body and those that run along the spine. They maintain posture and provide the strength for lifting and pushing. The face muscles control a wide range of movements and are especially complex around the mouth and eyes.

Thanks for reading,
