Sartorius

What muscle has by an aponeurosis inot medial aspect of proximal tibia as its insertion?

Sartorius

What muscle flexes, abducts, and laterally rotaes thigh; flexes knee; known as "tailor's muscle" because it helps effect cross legged position in which tailors are often depicted?

What muscle has/is inferiro from lesser trochanter to linea aspera of femur as its insertion?

Pectineus

What muscle adducts, flexes and medially roates leg, especially during walking?

Gracilis

What muscle has the inferior ramus and body of pubis as its origin?

Gracilis

What muscle has the medial surface of the tibia just inferior to medial condyle as its insertion?

Gracilis

What muscle adducts thigh, flexes and medially rotaes leg, especially during walking?

Rectus femoris

What muscle has the anterior inferior iliac spine and usperior margin of acetabulum as its origin?

Rectus femoris

What muscle has the tibial tuberosity and patella as its insertion?

Rectus femoris

What muscle extends the knee and flexes the thigh at hip?

Vastus Lateralis

What muscle has the greater trochanter, interochanteric line, and linea aspera as its origin?

Vastus Lateralis and Vastus medialis

What muscle has the tibial tuberosity and patellas as its insertion?

Vastus Lateralis

What muscle extends and stabilizes the knee

Vastus Medialis

What muscle has the linea aspera and intertrochanteric line as its origin?

Vastus Medialis

What muscle extends the knee, and stabilizes the patella?

Gluteus Maximus

What muscle has the Dorsal Ilium, the sacrum, and the coccyx as its origin?

Gluteus Maximus

What muscle has the gluteal tuberosity of the femur and iliotibial tract as its insertion?

Gluteus Maximus

What muscle is a complex, powerful thigh extensor (most effective when the thigh is flexed, as in climbing stairs-but not as in walking): antagoinist of the iliopsoas; laterally rotaes and abducts thigh?

Gluteus medius

What muscle has the upper lateral surface of the ilium as its origin?

Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus

What muscle ahs the greater trochanter of the femur as its insertion?

Gluteus Medius

What muscle abducts and medially roates thigh; and steadies pelvis during walking?

Gluteus Minimus

What muscle has the external inferior surface of the ilium as its origin?

Gluteus Minimus

What muscle abducts and medially rotates thigh and steadies pelvis?

Biceps Femoris

What are the hamstrings also known as?

Biceps Femoris

What muscle has the ischial tuberosity (long head); and linea aspera and distal femur (short head) as its origin?

Biceps Femoris

What muscle has the tendon that passes laterally to insert into head of fibula and lateral condyle of tibia as its insertion?

Biceps Femoris

What muscle extends thigh; laterally roates leg; and flexes the knee?

Semitendinosus and Semimembranosus

What muscle has the ischial tuberosity as its origin?

semitendinosus

What muscle has the medial aspect of the upper tibial shaft as its insertion?

Semitendinosus and Semimembranosus

What muscle extends the thigh; flexes the knee; and medially rotates th leg?

Semimembranosus

What muscle has the medial condyle of the tibia, and lateral condyle of the femur as its insertion?

Extensor Hallucis Longus

What muscle as the anteromedial shaft of the fibula and the interosseous membrane as its origin/

Extensor Hallucis Longus

What muscle has the tendon inserts on distal phalanx of great toe as its insertion?

Extensor Hallucis Longus

What muscle extends the great toes; and dorsiflexes the foot?

Gastrocnemius

What muscle has by two heads from medial and lateral condyles of femur as its origin?

Gastrocnemius and Soleus

What muscle has the Calcaneus via the calcaneal tendon as its insertion?

Gastrocnemius

What muscle Plantar flexes the foot when knee is etended; it crosses the knee joint, and thus can flex knee (when foot is dorsiflexed)?

Soleus

What muscle has the proximal portion of the tibia and fibula; and interoseous membrane as its origin?

Soleus

What muscle has plantar flexion, and is an important muscle for locomotion?
