Irrespective of age or sex more and more people are attempting to try

up muscles and grow stronger. Hence at this juncture it is rather very
important to thoroughly know the anatomy of body building. This would
definitely help the enthusiasts jump in faster and easier in the ocean
of the body building.
Lets consider it in brief - body building is about the
functions of the muscles, starting from the neck, there are two basic
muscles in the neck that need to be focused while undergoing body
building workout. The upper trapezium muscle goes from the back of the
neck to the shoulders. The levator scapula is another muscle in the neck
which runs next to the first six cervical vertebrae that too are
situated in the neck. The trapezium or the trap muscles or better known
as the trap muscles in fact run down from the back side of the neck down
to the waist on both the sides of the spinal cord.
The deltoid muscles, also known as the delt muscles - is
the next group of muscles situated in the shoulder region, the anterior
or frontal delt is placed in the front of the shoulder and the posterior
delt runs down on the back of the shoulders. The middle delt runs down
the shoulder side. Situated just below the anterior or frontal muscle
from the arm pit, is the rotator cuff muscle which frequently gets in
great pain. The chest muscles are known as the pectoral muscles.
The next are the triceps and the biceps which are
positioned in the arms. The triceps run down side of the arms right from
the shoulder area to the elbow joint, while the biceps are positioned
in the arms only. More over there are some of the very diverse group of
muscles positioned in the forearms. Next are the stomach muscles that
are often termed as the abs or the abdominals. This area is the main
focus of the body due to its central positioning. Hence it is essential
to build up muscles there both for overall core strength for permitting
the rest of the body.
The muscles positioned in the legs are technically termed
as the quadriceps muscles which are also known as the quads. However,
the hamstring muscle is located in the upper leg area. One typical
muscle group which demands vital focus while body building workout
exercises, is known as the buttocks or the glutes, the lats that are
positioned in the upper back region whereas the muscles positioned in
the lower back are termed as the lower trap muscles. The comprehensive
awareness and detailed knowledge about all the muscles greatly help
during the body building training program.
