The muscular system is the most intriguing of the body's structures. It is the system we have the most control over. Using a simple principle of physics, the lever principle, our muscles are able to move our skeleton around, allowing us to perform simple tasks of facial communication, refined finger movements and the graceful actions of the elite athlete. Also, understand the unique characteristics of the body's most important muscle - the heart. Join renowned surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman as he guides you through the anatomy and physiology of the human body's many muscles, tendons and ligaments.
