For each region, there is an overview of the muscles of the region as a whole, detail of each particular muscle in the region, information on palpation of that muscle, bulleted information on the anatomical relationship of the muscle to other muscles in that region, methodology for learning muscle actions to explain the reasoning behind each action, a section of miscellaneous information about the muscle, and much more. Additional resources are included in ten helpful appendices covering topics like anatomical position and planes of the body, joint actions, reverse actions, actions by groups of movers, kinesiology basics, palpation guidelines, and mnemonics.
