Learning the muscles

  1. Help me............oh faithful ones
    My lab teacher took 45 minutes out of a two hour lab class and went over all 600 muscles. He said these so fast that we were all lost and confused. We would ask him questions and he would hesitate and state "I only want the origion, insertion, or the action." Can somebody tell me what that is?
    I have a test on this 7-22-03...Any advice???
    Thank GOD for my tape recorder!!!

    Advice? Oh my gosh, get a new teacher!! Origin, insertion and action of 600 muscles takes a long time to teach and learn.


    P.S. I'd go talk to the teacher about your concerns. I cannot believe that 45 minutes is adequate. Good luck!

    Well....I don't know how it is at your school. My instructor did the same thing. I think they do that to scare people.....

    If they are seriously going to test you over all 600 or so muscles with origion, instertion, action...then I think there is something wrong.

    For lab, we had to know the basics. An Anatomy Coloring book helped me. Here is another link to a good review website....


    Good Luck!

    Good Deal!

    The first website was forwarded to me by one of my lab partners. The second actually came from this forum. (a thread just called websites under the student nursing section)

    I must say.....THIS FORUM IS AWESOME!!!!!!!

    Go to the lab, and study those muscles over and over and over, that is how I did it.
    I also went to the lab and videotaped the muscle models while I had my friend recite the needed information. Therefore I could study at home ( with the same models I would be tested on)
    Hope this helps! Best of luck on your exam!
