Question Description

The muscles found in the front of your thighs are known as what?

Final Answer

Anatomy of Your Leg Muscles

No, your glute muscles are not officially part of yourlegs (get the full 411 on your rear view at fitnessmagazine.com/behind), but here we take a below-the-cheeks look at the major players that are.

Hamstrings
These muscles, which form the back of the thigh, flex your knee and extend your hip.

Adductors
Also known as inner thigh muscles; squeeze a pencil between your knees to feel these fire.

Quadriceps
This muscle at the front of your thigh is made up of four sections and is the main mover when you extend knees.

Gastrocnemius
The uppermost of your two calf muscles, it gives your feet push-off power with each step.

Soleus
This calf muscle works with and lies underneath the gastrocnemius.

Tibialis anterior
The strip of muscle that makes up your shin and helps you flex your ankle to move your foot toward your knee.
