[Infographic] How to remember the muscles of the body in 5 steps

In today’s video training, you’ll learn How to remember the muscles of the body in 5 steps, so you can pass your exam with confidence

You need to learn and remember origins and insertions as part of your Level 2 or Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology Exam.

Have you ever asked any of these questions…

“How Can I remember the muscles of the body?”
“Is there an easy way to remember the muscles?”
“Do I need to learn them all?”
“Is there a quick way to learn muscles?”
“I go blank when learning muscles – help?”
“How do I stay focused on learning muscles?”
“What muscle does this exercise work, I can’t work it out?”

If you have asked one (or all) of the questions from this list, then this blog and infographic will 100% help you to learn and remember the muscles ready for your exam

What you need to know about muscles:

You need to know 37 muscles for the Level 2 Anatomy and Physiology Exam and 50 for the Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology Exam. That is quite a lot of information to learn, especially if you think you need to know 5 things or each muscle:

  • the location,
  • the origin,
  • the insertion,
  • the joints crossed,
  • the joint action created during concentric contraction

That could be as much as 250 pieces of information that you’d need to learn just about muscles, within the Level 3 Anatomy and Physiology Exam. 

If you attempt to learn this without a system, there will be chaos and your brain will struggle to “file” the information correctly.

Here at Parallel Coaching, we use a 5 step process to simplify the learning of each muscle…

Print and Go!

Below is an infographic that you can print out and put with your revision notes or stick it to your wall.

Use this as a sequence to follow for each muscle… follow all 5 steps in order – and MAKE SURE YOU DONT LEAVE OUT STEP ONE

Scheduling time to do the revision and remember the muscles of the body is the most important part. Splitting up the muscles into small chunks gives your brain time to assimilate everything you have learned.

If you are serious about learning how to remember the muscles of the body for your exam, or just for your knowledge as a Fit Pro – You can take this Infographic one step further and use us to help guide and schedule your learning over a 28day process.
