  1. Iliopsoas
    • PA: Anterior Lumbar vertebrae, Proximal iliac fossa,
    • DA: Proximal medial femur,

    Function: hip flexion (trunk pulled down, leg pulled up), Exterior rotation of the femur.
  2. Gluteus Maximus
    • PA: Outer surface of ilium, Lateral sacrum,
    • DA: Posterior proximal femur,

    Function: hip extension, tilting back/flattening of the back
  3. Gluteus medius and minimus
    • PA: outer surface of ilium,
    • DA: lateral proximal femur,

    Function: hip adduction
  4. Quadriceps femoris (3 vastus)
    • PA 3 vastus: (intermedius, lateralis, medialis): all around the proximal femur,
    • DA: Anterior proximal tibia (tibial tuberosity),

    Function: knee extension ONLY
  5. Adductors (5)
    • PA: Pubis,
    • DA: Medial femur,

    Function: hip adduction
  6. Rectus femoris (quadricep)
    • PA: Anterior ilium,
    • DA: Anterior, proximal tibia (tibial tuberosity),

    Function: knee extension, hip flexion (rectus femoris only)
  7. Hamstrings
    • PA: Ischial tuberosity,
    • DA: Posterior, proximal tibia (medially and laterally),

    Function: hip extension, knee flexion
  8. Tibialis Anterior
    • PA: Anterior, proximal tibia (2/5 of it),
    • DA: top of first metatarsal,

    Function: Dorsiflexion
  9. Gastrocnemius
    • PA: Posterior, (medial and lateral) distal femur,
    • DA: Calcaneus,

    Function: Plantar flexion, knee flexion
  10. Soleus
    • PA: Posterior proximal tibia,
    • DA: Calcaneus,

    Function: Plantar Flexion
