How to remember the muscles for your anatomy exam?
Great question! This is the most common question that we get asked, this week alone I got asked it 5 times… so the video below video will give you a clear, proven strategy to learn the muscles in the body ready for your exam.
The 10 Steps to remember the muscles for your anatomy exam
1) SCHEDULE Get a list of all the muscles you need to know (this will be in your qual guidance or in your manual and will vary for different syllabus).
Workout how many 10 MINUTE SLOTS of revision you can schedule between now and your exam.
Divide these slots into each of the muscles – allocating a clear 10 minute window dedicated to each muscle on your list.
2) THE BASICS Get a clear image of the muscle you are working on and look at it (you need to be able to see the origin and insertion)
3) Write the NAME OF THE MUSCLE, on a post it note (correctly and clearly).
4) IMAGINE this word being tattooed onto the muscle image
5) Close your eyes – can you SEE THE MUSCLE with the name written on it? If not, look at the image and the word more, really focus on it, and then test yourself again.
6) Now write the ORIGIN of the muscle above name on the post it note, and the INSERTION below the name.
7) Now IMAGINE this being tattooed onto the image as well. really focus on it.
8) Close your eyes, you should be able to SEE THE WORDS for the name of the muscle, the origin and he insertion written clearly over the clear muscle image.
9) Do an action/ EXERCISE that uses this muscle. Feel it working
10)YOU ARE DONE. leave muscles for a bit and go onto another topic/ task.
