EXERCISE 15 – MUSCULAR SYSTEM OBJECTIVES 1. To define origin, insertion, agonist, antagonist and synergist. 2. To cite criteria in naming skeletal muscles. 3. To name and locate the major muscles of the human body on models. 4. To identify cat muscles. 5. To name the origin and insertion of the key human muscles, state the major movement or action of each, and explain how muscle actions are related to their location. 6. To identify antagonists of the major prime movers. NOTES: The labbook has much more detail than you need to know for this unit. Also realize that your TEXTBOOK actually has very good specifics and pictures on this same topic.

For examples: Biceps brachii and Triceps brachii are antagonistic to each other. Name
