Anterior thigh muscles (preview) – Human Anatomy | Kenhub

Hello, hello, everyone! This is Joao from
Kenhub, and welcome to another anatomy tutorial where, this time, I’m going to be talking
about the anterior thigh muscles and help you understand which muscles form the anterior
side of the hip and thigh and how they work. Now, without further ado, I want to tell you
that the anterior thigh muscles are comprised by two main muscles, and these are the quadriceps
femoris and the sartorius muscle. Let’s start with the first one here on our
list, the quadriceps femoris seen now, highlighted in green here on these two images. What you
need to know about this muscle is that this is a four-headed muscle of the thigh, hence
the name: quadriceps, “four-headed,” and almost completely covers the anterior side of your
femur. As you can also see here on both of these images, that the quadriceps femoris
is covering the anterior portion of your thigh bone. And you can also see here other muscles… Hey guys, as you can see, this video is a
