Functional Anatomy vs Origin-Insertion Anatomy

Michael Boyle - 

Function- (Gary Gray NASM). All lower body muscles function to prevent flexion or create extension. 

Anatomy is a funny science. In college we were taught what I can best describe as origin-insertion cadaver anatomy. I like to refer to it as dead person anatomy.

The instructor would show us a muscle and say  “this muscle originates here and inserts here”. We were taught the boney prominences of these origins and insertions and told to memorize them. We were then taught the supposed function of the muscle.

In the case of a muscle like the quadriceps we were told that if the quadriceps were to shorten the lower leg would extend.  If we look at simple mechanics, this seemed really logical. Unfortunately, this was also the part that ended up not being very true and, this is where we begin to distinguish between the idea of origin-insertion anatomy and functional anatomy.

The semi-truth is that If you had a cadaver and, if you could somehow produce a muscle contraction in a dead body, and you let the lower legs hang off the table, a quad contraction would cause the leg to extend. However, this does not make the quad a knee extensor in real life.

In the same way, if you flipped a cadaver over and were able to cause the hamstring group to contract, the heel would move toward the butt. However, that does not mean that the hamstring flexes the knee. The cadaver anatomy we were taught in school just doesn't seem to hold up in real life.

How many times have we heard that everything changes when the foot hits the ground. I think this statement, Everything Changes When the Foot Hits the Ground, was one of the early titles of a Gary Gray seminar and could not be more true.

Lets use the same quadricep muscle as the example. If you are walking and you put your foot on the ground, at the moment the foot strikes the ground does the quad extend the knee? If it did, I think you would go backward instead of forward.

In fact what happens when the foot hits the ground is that all of the muscles of the lower body act eccentrically and in concert to prevent the joints of the lower body from flexing. So, the real function of the quadriceps  ( and the glute, hamstring, gastroc etc) is to prevent flexion of the ankle knee and hip.

I first learned this concept in the early 90's at a Gary Gray-Chain Reaction seminar in Phoenix and was thrilled. Gray's concepts allowed me to throw away all the isolation machines that cluttered my weight room. The concepts also gave me the courage to remove all the isolation exercises that were supposed to strengthen specific muscles and prevent injuries. For me, it was the first big step in the development of what we now call functional training.

Gray's analysis was simple.

The anatomy that we had been taught in school simply made no sense. When held up to the lens of real life, the old origin-insertion anatomy was a flawed way of teaching that left us unprepared for the real world. 

Mike Clark of NASM fame made it more clear in the first NASM courses. It took me a while to catch on but, over time I realized that the answer to every question on the NASM test was basically the same. If the NASM test asked you what a muscle did at ground contact you answered “eccentrically decelerates flexion of the ankle, knee and hip”. When the NASM test asked you what happened at toe off the answer switched to “concentrically extends the ankle, knee, and hip”. 

The answers were now so simple.

It was understanding the concept that was hard. The fact of the matter is that in real life none of the muscles behaved in the manner we were taught. Instead they simply acted together as stabilizers or movers to prevent flexion or create extension.

The big key with functional anatomy is that we begin to look at the muscles and joints as a system that works together, not as a bunch of isolated joints. It's not about what happens at one joint but the synergy of groups of joints acting together to create motions like running or jumping. If we see knee extension or knee flexion as separate, we miss the point.

I like to say that the only guy who uses his quad to extend his knee is the one legged man in the ass kicking contest!

Here are simple ways to solve the difficulties of women losing weight and The StrengthCast PowerShow

Here Are Simple Ways To Solve The Difficulties Of Women Losing Weight

Winning in the weight loss game

A lady and her partner go on a diet together. Are they both inspired? Yes. Do they each consistently count calories? Yes. The guy is most likely to shed more undesirable pounds than his better half.

Why? Blame it on your genes, some specialists state.

" We hear this all the time, and it can be irritating for ladies," states endocrinologist Ula Abed Alwahab, MD. "But regrettably for females, their hereditary makeup can make slimming down a bit more difficult."

What elements are at work here?

  1. Metabolic process blues. Females generally have more body fat and less muscle than guys. Which impacts the standard metabolic rate, or the number of calories your body burns while at rest.

" Metabolic rate remains in part driven by your muscle mass, and females have less muscle and more fat naturally than males," states dietitian and accredited diabetes teacher Dawn Noe, RD, LD, CDE.

  1. Pregnancy impacts. When a lady gets pregnant, she puts on weight and more body fat. In addition, it's frequently hard for a brand-new mom to discover the time to work out and sleep. And she'll require both to shed those additional pounds.

Breastfeeding does assist with burning calories and weight loss at this phase of life.

  1. Menopause. Ladies likewise put on weight in their abdominal area throughout menopause due to a loss of hormonal agents and a slower metabolic process. Some females even have a name for their brand-new potbelly-- meno-pot.

  2. PCOS struggles. Between 5 and 10 percent of females have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This is a condition identified by a hormone imbalance that makes weight-loss harder and triggers menstrual abnormality.

Regardless of these difficulties, there are a lot of methods to eliminate weight gain and dominate. Here are 3.

  1. Resistance training and weightlifting.

Increasing muscle mass assists both ladies and males to enhance their metabolic process. Having more muscle mass assists you in burning calories, even when you're sitting or at rest.

You can preserve muscle by doing resistance training a minimum of two times a week, for 20 to 30 minutes per session. This is specifically important as you get older. (Your metabolic process naturally decreases and you lose muscle as you age.).

There are a number of methods to approach resistance training:

Usage of a health club or equipment in your home.

Utilize dumbbells or resistance bands.

Take part in a physical fitness class, such as Pilates.

Utilize your body for resistance by doing push-ups, crouches, and lunges.

Females are often reluctant to do weightlifting since they assume it will make them look manly. That is a mistaken belief, as females do not have the quantity of testosterone that males have.

Noe motivates females to get comfy with weights. "Women need to be weightlifting to get the advantages of structure muscle, such as increased metabolic rate and avoidance of osteoporosis," she states.

A weight-bearing workout isn't just a healthy exercise. As it assists in growing muscle mass, you burn more calories, which reduces insulin resistance substantially and avoids diabetes.

  1. Select a proper meal plan that works for you.

If middle-aged males and females are both thinking about dropping weight, the number of calories a male requires for weight reduction is approximately 1,500 each day (depending upon height/weight/level of exercise) however, the lady's calorie requirements will be much less-- generally about 1,200 calories daily, Noe states.

Naturally, if they are both working out frequently, those calories might move somewhat greater. For females, progress in your weight reduction might indicate consuming less than males in the long term.

Noe frequently suggests a well-balanced strategy such as the Mediterranean diet plan. She likewise tends to utilize lower carb and ketogenic diet plans, particularly for females with PCOS or diabetes who might not endure greater carbohydrate meal strategies. "Research of weight reduction does not substantiate one eating pattern over another," she states, "and the meal plan you choose should be matched according to your health requirements and consuming habits.".

  1. Concentrate on the long game.

It's crucial to exercise patience. Research studies reveal that the majority of weight-loss strategies tend to produce anywhere from a 5% to 10% weight reduction within a year if you persevere. "If you’re not seeing progress, talk with your health care group as you may need to apply other strategies that will better fit your way of life," she states.

Whether you follow a diet plan low in fat, low in carbs, or some other diet plan, make certain meals are well balanced and healthy. Consist of lean proteins, healthy fats like nuts, olive oil, and avocados, restrict empty carbohydrates (no sugar, white bread, sweetened beverages, etc.), and great deals of minerals and vitamins from veggies and fruit.

Other nutrition suggestions for ladies over age 50 consist of consuming appropriate amounts of calcium and Vitamin D, either from food or supplements.

Top 3 Causes of Death in 2021 (New Data Might Surprise You) and What is a Heart Attack, how do I spot the signs and how do I treat it?


What is a Heart Attack, how do I spot the signs and how do I treat it?

What is a heart attack, how do I spot the signs and how do I treat it?


Angina is usually caused by a build up of plaque in the arteries and as a result a reduced blood flow. During exercise or exertion, the heart needs more blood but cannot get it because of the reduced blood flow. The casualty will often feel pain in the chest when they exercise.

Heart Attack

A heart attack is caused when some of the plaque breaks off and causes a blood clot. The blood clot can block the artery resulting in the death of an area of the heart muscle.

Signs of a heart attack

Symptoms can begin suddenly and unlike angina, sometimes when at rest. Like angina, a heart attack can feel like “vice like” squashing but can also feel like tightness in the chest or even indigestion. The pain can be in the centre of the chest and can radiate into any arm. The symptoms usually last longer than 30 minutes and the casualty can be a grey colour and may be sweating. They may be suffering from “shortness of breath” and have a feeling of impending doom. Sometimes the casualty will feel nauseous, dizzy and they may vomit.


Sit the casualty down and make sure that they are feeling comfortable.

If the casualty says that they have their own GTN medication then let them take it.

Try to reassure the casualty.

Call 911/999 if:

You suspect that they are having a heart attack

The casualty tells you that they do not have angina.

If they say that they have angina but the symptoms are not relieved after 15 minutes by resting or taking their medication. If they say that they have angina however,the signs came on when at rest.

If in doubt CALL 911/999/112

Concealed Carry: Quantifying Your Defensive Shooting Skills, And Setting Standards



What level of defensive handgun skills does it take to win in a gunfight? Because no two defensive gun uses are exactly the same, and there are many variables, it's impossible to answer this question unequivocally.

However, don't think that you can't or shouldn't train to a quantifiable standard.

By studying many armed encounters caught on video, we can draw some basic inferences on things like typical draw speed necessary to get a shot on a suspect who has a gun at the ready position vs at their side. We can look at how many shots are typically necessary to get immediate stoppage based on where they hit the suspect.

These videos provide great real-life data we can look at to put together some general parameters on the proficiency standards that suggest a favorable outcome. But I want to reiterate that nothing guarantees you'll win a gunfight. Proficiency in defensive gun skills certainly helps, and that's what we are trying to get at.
