What are the muscles in the human body? (part 2)
What are the different muscles in the human body? A strong knowledge of the human musclular system is an important requirement of GCSE PE with Edexcel and AQA. This is the second of a pair of interactive quiz games which aim to develop and test your ability to label the muscles in the human body. Whereas the first activity only focused on the upper body, this activity requires you to label muscles in the upper and lower parts of the human body including the legs.
Where are the abdominals? Can you label the quadriceps? Other muscles to identify include the gastrocnemium, hamstrings, pectorals and gluteals. Can you label them on an image of the human body? Test yourself using the interactive activity below – a great tool for revision.
